  • FarmdropFarmdrop is an online food delivery company distributing food to consumers that is sourced from local farmers and fishermen. It has an online platform and app with around 30,000 regular users. I worked on the re-design of the company website, effectively connecting consumers with producers, cutting out the supermarket.
