What is a Food Hub?


A Food Hub is a catch-all term for an economic model that seeks to aggregate food products from one region and provide a central channel (or hub) through which they are sold to regional buyers. It can look very different depending on the model.




What is Fireweed’s Food Hub Model?


Fireweed Food Hub operates on a wholesale consignment model, where Producer Members of our Co-op can become Food Hub suppliers, and post their products and inventory for sale through an online platform to wholesale buyers, such as restaurants, institutions, grocery stores, catering companies and more.




How does food get sold through the Food Hub?


Fireweed Food Hub operates on a consignment model. This refers to the fact that Fireweed Food Hub does not purchase inventory from Suppliers and resell it. Instead, we provide an online platform on which all our Suppliers can post their inventory to be browsed and purchased in one central place. Consignment is the model recommended for fledgling food hubs due to risk and capacity factors, but in the future some Food Hubs move towards an inventory model.




Who does the Food Hub sell to?


Fireweed Food Hub sells to wholesale customers only such as restaurants, grocery retailers, and institutional foodservice providers. The Food Hub does not sell to individual or household consumers. Over the longer term, we hope that this will help grow the overall market demand for locally produced food and allow farms to focus more on farming, and less on direct marketing. It can help existing farms scale up to find new levels of efficiency, and possibly help more small farmers enter the market. It's a longer term goal, but we believe that taking a systems-approach will help get more good food to more Manitoban households over the long run.




Who are the Food Hub’s suppliers?


Fireweed sources exclusively from our Co-op Producer Members who are all small to medium scale farmers, ranchers and food producers who produce in our region. All of our suppliers are dedicated to continually improving their farm’s ecological and social resiliency through spray-free and Organic Certified growing, crop rotation, free-range meat production, and fair pay for farm labourers. We are dedicated to providing a transparent supply chain in all our operations and we will never purchase from re-sellers of any kind.
