Wholeshare is an online marketplace for natural and organic food. We help families buy directly from natural food distributors and food hubs through a group purchasing model. By tapping into the existing wholesale distribution network, we're able to serve every US geography and solve the last mile problems that have plagued food distribution.
Demand for sustainable food exists everywhere, but natural food superchains like Whole Foods can only operate in major cities and wealthy suburbs (about 25% of the US population). Using realtime drop off points, Wholeshare offers significantly lower prices than natural grocery chains and provides tens of thousands of products to the other 75% of the country.
