About Local Line

What We Do

Local Line helps food suppliers doing direct sales increase their orders and save time on order fulfillment. Our white-label e-commerce, CRM, inventory and logistics modules enable suppliers to control their own brand and grow their business on their terms.

Our History

Local Line started in early 2015 as a match-making service for small farmers and chefs. In our earliest days, Cole, Local Line’s Founder & CEO, was delivering local potatoes out of the back of his SUV! Those early days doing deliveries helped the Local Line team understand the local supply chain. In late 2015 Local Line launched the first version of our software, aimed at helping suppliers move online and accept orders from customers. Today we have a complete suite of sales and distribution tools, and our goal has stayed the same: put suppliers in control of their sales, so they can control their futures.

Our Mission

As we continue to grow, one thing we know with absolute certainty is that you, the supplier, are who we work for. Our mission is to help every local food supplier profitably grow their business and as a result, exponentially increase access to local food. There’s lots to do, but that’s okay, because our greatest pleasure comes from working with our customers every day!
