At FoodECrave, our goal is to connect foodies to the same quality meats and foods that restaurants, marketplaces and local food retailers have access to. It’s also to allow local small businesses that create delicious foods a place to sell those products.
We strive to provide the best quality of products and the best online shopping experience. Although we are just getting started, our goal is scale into the largest online marketplace in the country.
