What is a Food and Meat Co-op?
Is it a Costco? Yes and No (how about on steroids) Is it a Farmer’s Market? Yes and No Is it a Food Truck? Yes and No Is it like Imperfect Foods/Misfits Market? Yes and No Is it like ButcherBox? Yes and No Is it like a food delivery service? Yes and No Is it like a curbside food service? Yes and No Do I have to commit to a subscription? No…. Well…What in the HECK is this then?!? What if I told you that we take the best part of each of these to make a food buying experience unlike any other on the planet? In fact, let’s call it a Mobile Farmer’s Market, Food Truck, Warehouse Store all in one - or we can just call it Food and Meat Co-op for short. It’s a food dream come true. Think of it like buying a house. Have you seen 4 houses that you liked, but wish you could create your own home that combines your favorite features of each? Well, that’s what we did, but for food buying! And to boot, not only do you get conveience, freshness, support farmers and producers directly, tracebability, variety, diet specific foods, community…but you can also save between 20-75% on every item of food! WHAT?!? Sign me up?!? Slow down Come and learn first Then join the waitlist Then watch for your emails There is an ever-so-slight learning curve to participate. It’s free to participate and it there is no subscription/commitment required, but because we are shaking up the food industry, you need to learn how it all works first (there really are no strings attached, its just understanding how to use the website, when to order and where to pickup - that’s all) and then you can dive head first into that big giant bowl of the best fresh fried bacon (but wait until it cools!!) that we have found. So are you ready to read more and join the waitlist? Now’s your chance to act…and find out which parts of each food buying experience above we have extracted and engrafted together…. How did this all start? Well, back in 2020 when the world went crazy, a group of us were screaming pretty loud that we need food and we need it for a good price. Although screaming (internally of course) didn't actually cause food to fall into our laps, it led us to a path where we were told. "if you want those demands, then just gather a few thousand of your closest friends and buy food by the truckload wholesale" And now here we are. Granted it wasn't that simple as we had many licenses, laws, legal storage, warehousing, trucks, logistics, and about 400 other steps to make it happen. But while we did that, you all grew the community to what we needed to pull this passion project off. The rest is history, except that we are making history everyday by changing more and more lives of those that discover this super cool community of fellow-like-minded foodies, the incredible food options, the savings, the elevated lifestyles in both diet and more $$ in wallets to do whatever you want and so much more. We started off just in Utah with 4 pickup locations. Today, we have thousands that participate across Utah, Idaho and Wyoming with 30 pickup spots (adding 1-3 more monthly!) and 5 counties in Utah that also can get home delivery. It's pretty amazing how a refusal to accept that families were limited in 2 lbs of protein per shopping trip during a crisis blossomed into something much bigger and better. We knew the food was out there (in fact, there was a surplus being dumped by the millions of lbs) and so we figured out how to bypass the retail chain and middle-men and in the process solved many problems beyond what a pandemic revealed. Necessity is the mother of invention...and now it's sheer blessing and fun to buy food as a result.
