About

Our Goalย 

Local Porter was created to help small restaurant suppliers and food producers survive and thrive in the current crisis.

Weย haveย a once-in-a-generation opportunity right now to remakeย our food systems from the ground up -ย a smaller, healthier, more transparent system thatย rewards ethically sound, environmentally beneficial business practices andย avoidsย the mistakes of ourย broken large-scale industrialized model.

When COVID-19 forced restaurant shutdowns across the country, restaurant suppliers were left in a tough position trying to pivot to direct-to-consumer grocery sales. Without their traditional restaurant wholesale accounts, many food suppliersย saw their sales drop by as much as 80-90%, and now that restaurants are slowly opening back up their sales are โ€œonlyโ€ down by 50-60%.

These are small businesses normally partnering with top restaurants throughout the USA - independent businesses leading the charge toward a sustainable restaurant and grocery supply chain. By supporting these businesses, we can help our restaurant and grocery food systems come out of the current crisis with a stronger, more transparent supply chain intact.
