About Local Line

What started as the local food movement has become big business. Local Line offers you the opportunity to be in the middle of the newest trend. Local Line is an e-commerce tool used by farmers, food hubs, farmers markets, and just about any other kind of local food supplier to manage and accelerate their access to new markets and sales channels. Unlike most e-commerce tools, LocalLine is purpose built for food to make it simple and easy for both producers and their customers.

Why work at Local Line?

Local food is the fastest growing sub-segment of the broader food industry. Consumers are looking for more convenient ways to shop for healthy food. While this has been the trend for a while, COVID-19 has caused a dramatic acceleration in demand for local food as people have begun to look for safer, closer to home alternatives to the grocery store.

The team at Local Line is truly passionate about building a customer centric company and we seek to help our customers solve some of the most significant challenges they face in all aspects of sales and distribution. We have an amazingly dedicated team that has seen it all during the pandemic, and now we are looking to bring on new team members as our business continues to grow. We have a clear vision for the future and a roadmap to execute on.
