CSI Success Story: Fresh City Farms

Fresh City Farms delivers organic produce, groceries, meal kits and a variety of prepared meals right to your door. They were recipients of a CSI Catapult Loan in 2015, and part of our 2016 Agents of Change cohort. Since then, their growth has been phenomenal. In April of this year they acquired Mabel’s Bakery & Specialty Foods. A month later, they announced the acquisition of The Healthy Butcher, a pioneer in organic and 100% grass-fed meat and sustainable seafood. The acquisition gives Fresh City full control over its animal protein supply chain.
