Connecting farms with forks to improve lives
Taraba Virtuală is a mobile app that connects small farmers directly to those interested in buying locally. We remove the middle man when it comes to providing fresh, organic produce from farms, making it a cost-effective way for farmers to sell. Instead of having to sell at markets, which can be irregular and hard to predict, farmers can now easily manage their orders, set their own prices and save time by routing their daily deliveries through our app.
We found that independent Romanian farmers were lacking efficient management systems, time, and the knowledge needed to build a strong online presence. At the same time, the demand for organic and fresh food is higher than ever. Our app simply connects the two, to benefit everyone.
Our current farmers have saved 4 hours per week on average, which is the equivalent of cutting the weeds from 300 plants. We also saved 50kg of CO2 last year, by making sure our farmers’ journeys were more efficient. Our technology helps not only the farmers and the planet, but it also helps people make healthier choices.
