Sourcing and Purchasing

We make placing an order for local food as easy as ordering a palette of ketchup or kitchen towels. Our clients deal with just one entity, Fresh Nation, and we in turn deal with the multiple vendors in each city and state that comprise a full local food assortment. Clients can place orders direct from their VMS, or via Fresh Nation's secure online portal.

Quality Assurance

Fresh Nation's field personnel ensure consistency in food quality in every city and state where we operate, making QA inspections and substitutions if necessary to ensure only the finest products make it to our clients' stores or warehouses. In addition, Fresh Nation maintains a product traceability and recall system for food safety.

Delivery to Store or Warehouse

Fresh Nation handles the delivery of all your local food purchases, direct to your stores or warehouses. We can customize a delivery schedule to meet your needs. In many cases, the cost of delivery is included in all wholesale orders.
