The Roots of Producers Market

Newsletter: The Roots of Producers Market

Posted August 23, 2019

Dear Community,

Producers Market didn’t appear out of thin air. To the contrary, it's rooted in a very real mission to bring integrity and trust to the agricultural value chain. The Producers Market you see today is the still-evolving product of a long and heart-centered journey.

This venture began as a conversation between co-founders Chris Robb and Keith Agoada. Chris comes from a consumer packaged goods and organic retail branding background, and Keith from agricultural entrepreneurship and supply chains.

The pair shared stories of how, on both sides of the supply chain, corporations seemed to have forgotten about the two most important stakeholders: the farmers and farm workers who create the products and steward the land, and the individuals who consume the final products.

They started to imagine a revolutionary corporation that would be focused on scalability, innovation and profitability—through a 100% commitment to serving communities. They envisioned serving the communities that this $4 Trillion global supply chain had all but forgotten.

This multi-year conversation ended with a simple conclusion: The next great companies will be defined by integrity, authenticity, transparency, and service.

Producers Market is committed to becoming one of those companies. It is an honor to share that mission with you.
