There’s an easier way….
Partnering with Brass City Harvest for your wholesale needs simplifies the process of finding fresh, clean, and locally sourced food for your business. Believe it or not, it is more attainable now than ever.
Brass City Harvest connects Connecticut farmers with wholesale customers throughout the state. Our unique approach to food production ensures the highest sanitation levels: Our systems are prepared to fulfill your order, whether it’s 300 or 3,000 items. When you buy wholesale from Brass City Harvest, you are providing local farms with reliable revenue, supporting Connecticut’s economy, and strengthening our community — not to mention offering fresher, healthier, and more sustainable products for your customers.
The Reliability You Need
The state of the food industry is ever changing, so you need a reliable partner. Whether you’re a local restaurant, school system, or supermarket, you don’t need to be at the mercy of the big box suppliers. Instead, dive deep into the community and strengthen the connection between your business and the customers you serve. Brass City Harvest is here to help provide the food you need and elevate the way it’s delivered to your customers.
Safety is a Priority
We understand the importance of sanitation in order to meet the regulations your organization has in place. Family farms typically lack the resources to address the new, mandatory food safety requirements of the FDA’s Food Safety Modernization Act. Failure to meet these new food sanitation standards creates consumer and wholesale market barriers for many family farms and denies them sustainable revenue, not to mention access to locally grown produce. Our facility was purpose-built to meet all of the standards of the Food Safety Modernization Act. Our food safety staff provides on-farm training and inspection, and farm food is sanitized in a two-stage process through customized equipment and chemical processes to ensure the integrity and safety of our farm products. Even our packaging is sanitized.
Support Local, From Our Community to Yours
Our goal is to provide your business or organization with the highest quality of food you need for a greater purpose, but we also have a broader mission. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has categorized almost one-third of the City of Waterbury as a food desert, meaning a large population is severely affected by the inadequate access to nutritious food options.
This is a challenge that we can overcome together. When you partner with Brass City Harvest as a wholesale supplier, our collaboration offers the following:
- Support local farmers that provide fruits, vegetables, meat, and dairy.
- Provide the producers of these items, such as bakers, and cheesemakers with better raw materials.
- Provide high quality nutritious foods to an area that does not have considerable access to it.
Requirements for Wholesale Purchase
Our wholesale application enhances how you provide for your customers. Before reaching out to us, we require that you have a Sales and Use Tax Permit on file from the State of Connecticut for a streamlined process. This will remain on file with us to ensure that you do not pay taxes on your food purchases when ordering. Click here to learn more about obtaining a Sales Tax Permit.APPLY NOW
