Organic food delivery Edmonton
Since bringing its business to Edmonton in October 2014, SPUD (Sustainable Produce Urban Delivery) has been delivering local and organic goods to customers, forging and strengthening partnerships with local food producers, and enjoying strong support from Edmonton’s local food community.
Founded in Vancouver in 1997, SPUD expanded to Calgary in 2002 and began building relationships with Alberta’s food producers. SPUD employees were aware of Edmonton’s thriving local food community before bringing their service to Edmonton, but the success they have enjoyed since arriving here has exceeded their expectations.
“The first three weeks we were open we did 40, 50 and 60 orders a week respectively and we were very excited and patting ourselves on the back and then by the sixth week we were delivering a thousand boxes a week, ” says Corbin Bourree, managing director for SPUD Edmonton.
How SPUD’s service works
SPUD delivers a variety of products, most of which are either local, organic or both, to customers’ doorsteps.
“Basically if you took a Planet Organic or a Blush Lane and crossed that with some of the really cool items that you’d find at the local farmers’ market on the weekend, that’s the product selection that we carry, ” explains Bourree.
Customers can search for and order products on SPUD’s website. Each product is displayed with a photo and will have a tag identifying whether it is local or organic. Additional nutritional information is available as well. “It really comes down to transparency, ” says Bourree. “We try to put the information back into people’s hands so they can pick the right items for their families.”
