LFFP Podcast Episode 2, Bluff Country Co-op, Part 2

In the Local Food Fine Print, we interview food buyers to learn how farmers can access their market and improve relations with buyers. The focus is on intermediate markets like co-ops, restaurants, food hubs, grocery stores, etc. Plus, we discuss details like insurance, pricing, food safety, and more.

In this episode, I continue the interview with Jason of Bluff Country Co-op. We discuss grade standards, packaging, PLU codes, pricing, common roadblocks to selling produce to the co-op, and you won't want to miss the produce battle.

Listen to it here, you can find it on iTunes and Stitcher too.
