Waterfields, a Core Change-inspired business, is capturing opportunities to create businesses which intentionally re-inhabit the urban core and create careers with talented individuals who often had a lack of access to living wage jobs or a wide range of degrading professions. Life circumstance doesn't affect who we hire.
By leveraging existing infrastructure and pursuing emerging markets we are not a charity but a market-driven and profitable solution to the opportunity gap in America.
Chefs’ dishes are reflections of themselves; culinary soul and spirit is shared to the public through windows like restaurants, bars and catered events. Chefs seek to express a reflection of themselves through culinary art, with each ingredient of a dish acting as a vital brush stroke in a masterpiece.
But great ingredients are tough to find. Ingredients are often mass-processed and or mass-produced. They are meant to serve quantity instead of quality. Instead of delivering optimal freshness and flavor to a plate, they are delivered to a truck. Chefs are not able to brush the culinary art they envision. The ingredients, far from perfect, become a lackluster reflection of the chef and their abilities.
Waterfields believes in elevating quality, consistency and availability. We work to rebuild the way produce is purchased and moved around our country, instead with local, regionalized distribution and shortened time between harvest and plate.
WATERFIELDS ANNOUNCES MULTI-PHASE EXPANSION
Waterfields has announced a new multi-phase expansion that will allow them to drastically increase production volumes to further serve Ohio’s restaurants, hospitals, universities and schools with high quality, year-round, Ohio-grown produce.
The expansion required Waterfields to choose a distribution strategy. “We’ve entered into a very significant strategic alliance with Premier ProduceOne”, an Ohio-based distributor of fresh produce. “Partnering with Premier ProduceOne to use their state-wide distribution capabilities means real change for the foodservice operators in Ohio; better, more consistently available ingredients for our chefs, fresher and more nutritious food for our schools. There is nothing like this today. This redefines what local is in the state of Ohio”.
You Will Taste.
Waterfields leverages a combination of unique internal talent, operational efficiencies and market-ready, game-changing technologies to create top-quality produce without an expectation of the customer paying 3x the market price. Inside our walls you'll find cutting-edge hydroponic technologies, unique proprietary processes and some old-fashioned engineering thrift.
Waterfields requires all products leaving our walls to be restaurant plate-quality with no exceptions.
Waterfields utilizes both indoor and outdoor production methods for year-round, predictable production.
