THE INDEPENDENT RESOURCE FOR SUSTAINABLE RESTAURANT FOODS!
What is “realEats.org”? It is THE singular, independent site that highlights suppliers and vendors that “do the right thing”. We highlight those vendors who offer any range of “green” products. From certified organic produce to hormone-free beef or wild caught or sustainably raised seafood. We will separate the contenders from the pretenders by requiring bona fide third party certification that the product we are highlighting is in fact…a newer, cleaner, less polluting, more eco-friendly product.
As the famous philosopher, Kermit the Frog once said, “it’s not easy being green”. That holds true for suppliers, chefs and operators. Green is normally more expensive. More to certify the process, more to meet certain statutes, more to process, store and ship. realEats.org aims to highlight those vendors who have taken the expensive steps to move beyond their competitors and have faith that we as chefs, buyers, owners and consumers will recognize the value to our community and our planet for these types of products.
Why all this “Green” nonsense? We believe, and by searching this site, we think you believe, it is up to our industry to lead the way to better foods. Better in the method of farming and it’s effects on the earth. Better in regards to health, from chemicals and “pump”, to anti-biotics and pesticides. Better in regards to our animals who should be humanely processed and produced. Better in regards to sustainability for our children and future generations.
This site was established by former restaurant owners, buyers, techno-geeks and foodservice students interested in developing an independent, unbiased singular site where restaurant owners, chefs and other professionals can find wholesome, “realEats” all in one place. This is an independent site. It is not related to or funded by any distributor, wholesaler, importer or other producer. We simply wanted to create a singular spot to find the good stuff! Enjoy!
