AUSTIN, TEXAS — Fieldcraft, Inc. is aiming to modernize ingredient marketing and sourcing.
Launched in 2019, Fieldcraft is an ingredient marketplace for food and beverage production. The platform initially connected buyers to specialty food-grade growers before adding ingredients in every form. More than 3,000 buyers have joined the digital marketplace, including brands, bakers, brewers and distillers, as well as sourcing teams from several of the world’s largest food and beverage companies.
Buyers can source from suppliers ranging in size from a 200-acre olive grove to a 40,000-acre organic operation, and from local processors to global manufacturers. They also may search tens of thousands of ingredients using multiple criteria simultaneously, including plant variety, processed form, solutions, certifications at the ingredient and supplier level and more.“Our search engine was built for the industry to streamline ingredient discovery and resolve what had previously been a time-consuming and often expensive task, and to help buyers maintain a competitive edge by creating a better way to explore new ingredient opportunities,” said Michael Chapman, co-founder and chief executive officer of Fieldcraft.
