About Hier Foods
What we do
Building the infrastructure for local food trade
Join us in our mission to improve direct trade between local food producers and their customers. We enable more suppliers to sell to retail by digitising the ordering process for supermarkets and suppliers.
Why we do it
Local Food for Everyone
At Hier we ❤️ food. We love shopping for great ingredients, cooking, and having friends and family over for a great meal. Doing so, we've discovered that food from local producers tastes fresher, is more nutritious, and is better for the world. Still, it can seem much easier to source food from cities that are anywhere but close by. At Hier we want to improve local food trade to be en paar with the global food chain that's evermore efficient and connected. We want to bring local food to the place where you buy your groceries.
