Thank you for choosing to support local enterprise by working with Local Goods Company.
In order to complete your registration please tell us a bit more about about your company, the products or service you provide and how we should pay you when we sell your goods.
If you haven't yet started a business and are missing some of the information we need, please visit our small business resource page.
As shown in the diagram below there are three three main ways in which we expect suppliers to work with the platform, and we know that hands-on testing and feedback is the only real way to improve our service.
One aspect of the service is to provide goods to customers using re-usable glass containers, much like a re-fillable store, but one that also delivers to the customer's door - we understand how tricky it can be for consumers to get to re-fillable stores, especially when they are out of the way or if glass is used to package goods.
After researching sanitation, packaging and transportation laws for transporting packaged goods we have a few different methods we'd like to try to out. We will then document the limitations and benefits of each, using these findings to improve our service. We feel it is extremely important to be transparent with our suppliers so they can understand the reasoning behind our decision making process.
Once the testing phase is over, we may invite you to complete a survey about your Local Goods Company supplier experience; from the collection of your goods, to receiving your payment.
Note: Only Method 2 will be tested at first. Canadian law does not require us to have a kitchen in our delivery truck to dispense body care and household products, so we will only use those types of products to test this method.
