First, of course, it’s about place. It could be the place you live, or a few minutes away, or within a common or personal border.
But, moreover, it’s about how you feel about that place. Is it comfortable ? Are my friends nearby? Does it contain pleasant memories? Are there like-minded people there? Can I run errands efficiently and effectively?
Yes, the word “local” is used frequently these days. And at Bamawise, we believe it’s here to stay. It is widely accepted that purchasing local food insures quality, but people are also keenly aware that buying local strengthens the local economy.
Bamawise is a business built on the concept of local is better. Bamawise searches for small food companies, mostly family-owned, for both produce and finished products. We help them get ready to enter larger markets and become more accessible to consumers. Then, we purchase their products to sell and distribute in the places where they are most likely to sell.
Some of the products we represent already have some degree of foothold in certain retail environments. Others only have a family recipe. No matter what stage of development, Bamawise has the resources, experience and capability to meet that producer wherever they are in the process. And when ready, we have the relationships to get local products in front of decision makers in retail stores.
Bamawise believes that locally produced food can compete with food from anywhere, and win.
