At Basis® we're serious about our mission of good food for all.
Farm to Chef® Our wholesale division provides distribution services for family farms and artisinal producers interested in selling their products directly to wholesale customers, including the 20,000+ restaurants and institutional buyers in New York City.
Good Food to You® Our home and office delivery service, recently rated "Best Grocery Delivery" by New York Magazine, brings 100% traceable food directly from family farms to you at prices that are often lower than commodity fare at the supermarket.
Good food is traditional. Food should be delicious, healthy, and wholesome. Food should be grown by farmers, not engineered by scientists. Food should be prepared in local kitchens, not processed in far-away factories.
Good food is localized. Who, where and how food is produced matters. Food should be sourced with intent. The days of treating food as an anonymous commodity are over. An apple grown in China, picked before it’s ripe and shipped across the planet, is most decidedly not the same as an apple grown with care by a local farmer and delivered to market the same afternoon it is picked. Provenance matters!
Good food is 100% traceable. Finding good food can be a challenge. Finding out where it comes from is even more of a challenge. We want people to know as much as possible about where their food comes from. Maybe it’s because our moms told us to never take food from strangers, or maybe it’s just because we think food tastes better when you know who grew it and where it came from.
Good food is affordable. Our motto is: good food for all! We think everyone should have access to good food at fair prices.
