An online market place where farmers and growers can sell surplus and imperfect produce directly to trade buyers – saving time, money and preventing food waste.
What critical problem is COGZ addressing?
30% of all produce grown is wasted before it reaches the farm gate; we want to get this produce back into the supply chain, and by doing so tackle this food waste problem.
How do you provide a solution to this problem?
COGZ is a business to business online market place where farmers and growers can sell their surplus or imperfect produce so that it does not become food waste. Food manufactures and processors can also use the platform to source surplus produce to create more sustainable products for the end consumer.
