Latest updates to FoodTrade

Shopping lists, seasonal availability, video profiles, full screen maps, and much much more.

Trading’s never been easier with our new additions –

Shopping Lists

Imagine if you knew what your local restaurants, bars, schools, hospitals, cafes, and even consumers wanted to buy locally.

You’d only call up those who you knew actually wanted to buy from you. You’d cluster sales. Companies would group together to make savings on purchasing. We’d all plan local and seasonal availability better.

That’s why we’ve added shopping lists.

How to add your shopping list: 

  1. Go to your profile
  2. Click on the “Shopping List” tab
  3. Add produce you (want to) buy

Video Profiles

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well we’ve gone the extra mile by adding video to your profile. Now you can introduce your business to the world, say what you want to buy or sell, or simply say hello to your connections. Luddites don’t sweat! It’s only 15 seconds, super easy and all you need is a smart phone.

How to add a video:

  1. Take a short 15 second video on Instagram, Vine, Vimeo, YouTube and many more
  2. Go to your profile
  3. Click on the “Edit” button on the right hand side
  4. Scroll down to add the Video URL and click ‘Update’

Seasonal availability, photos, capacity

We know it’s not always as simple as ‘we sell strawberries’. Whether your product or menu is seasonal or you’ve got a limited amount to buy or sell, show the details clearly on your profile and you’ll save heaps of time explaining. You can showcase your specialities by adding photos, descriptions. It’s a place to show off – don’t be shy!

How to add availability, photos and capacity to your produce 

  1. Go to your profile
  2. Add produce you (want t0) buy
  3. Click on the edit icon
  4. Show/tell us what makes your product special
