Hi, If I were in business to need something like this site,
I would honestlyÂ go for theÂ free registration. you also have a actual contact phone number which is so important these days. and for the products on the front page, very nice advertising layout.Â
this is a very nice resource that businesses need to save money.
Thank you for the opportunity to give my feedback on this.Â Â

Business to business website attempting to connect the grower or farmer directly with a wholesale avenue to sell their products. It appears that everything is available from produce to cleaning supplies.
Now go back to the site and comment on various elements of the site
The light text may be difficult for some individuals to read. I like how the â€œFeatured Itemsâ€ are depicted; they are really the first thing that catches your eye. Product categories are easy to find, and appear to be very simple to use. I like the â€œBlogâ€ portion of the site, there are several interesting articles there, and I especially liked the one concerning how hospitals are attempting to change their menu to healthier meals.
What do you find bothersome? What do you like?
The main thing I have a problem with is the light graphics throughout all of the pages that I viewed.
I like that the site is very clean cut and to the point, there is not a lot of pictures and graphics that are not necessary.
The tours are very helpful, and walk you through different stages of the ordering and or selling process. This will prove very helpful for individuals that do not use a computer and online process on a regular basis.
What do you think of the sign up process?
Graphics are too light
I did not go the entire way through the process, however it seemed relatively simple.
Would you sign up for a free trial/free account? If not, why?
If I were a B2B wholesale grocer I would sign up for the free trial account, as I believe bringing the grower or first line distributor directly to the retailer is an important process as this eliminates the middle man and gives the grower or in this case also distributors/manufacturers of non foods more control over their product.
How do you think the site compares to other similar sites/competitors like LocalDirt.com and FarmsReach.com?
Neither LocalDirt.com nor FarmsReach.com have very much information on them, I wasnâ€™t actually sure what FarmsReach was about. LocalDirt has some nice graphics. Foodem has a lot more information on the home page; you know what it is about immediately.
Please share any additional feedback/comments you might have.
Overall this is a good site with the minor exceptions that I have noted elsewhere in this commentary, such as the light graphics.
