New Search Engine to Reduce Food Kilometres

A new search engine has been created to help consumers find local food and drink at www.foodkm.com.

The goal of www.foodkm.com is to reduce food miles/km. Consumers want to reduce the distance their food travels from the producer and to their plate, from the field to their fork or from the tree to their table. They want to buy locally grown food and drink.

The consumer can find their local growers by just entering their postal code in the search engine. The www.foodkm.com search will give them a list and a map showing the location of their closest growers.

You can list your farm and business for free if you sell products from your farm gate; are a butcher that sells locally grown meat; a baker that uses local ingredients; a Winery, a Agri-Tourism farm or an Agri-Tourism event; a Farmers Market where many different vendors sell locally grown products; or a restaurant with a local menu.

Consumers want to shop at local farms, buy the local food and they want to taste the local freshness.

For more information visit www.foodkm.com.
