Why Work @ 100km Foods

100km Foods was started to connect local farmers with urban markets. Through us, farmers get access to large, urban markets and our customers get access to delicious, farm-fresh food. It’s a win-win for all involved.

We deal fairly with farmers, allowing them to set their own prices, and we seek to treat all of our employees, suppliers, clients, and community with a high standard of fairness and cooperation. That has led us to become a certified B Corp (ever heard of that?).
