“We market and distribute wholesale Carolina organic farm produce to retailers, restaurants and buying clubs. We think that a sustainable food system is based on providing fresh local fruit, vegetables, and herbs while protecting the environment.” Eastern Carolina Organics is proudly farmer owned . Eighty percent of their sales go right back to their growers. ECO’s customers get fresh organic veggies and fruits, along with the knowledge that they're enabling farmers to protect their family land. By pooling diverse harvests from several regions, Eastern Carolina Organics is able to meet the demand for a steady stream of high-quality, seasonal food choices throughout the year. They enable participating organic growers to profitably sell their products and support efforts to improve production and packaging techniques. ECO also offers a way for conventional growers to enter the expanding organic market, including assistance in the transition to organic farming. Each winter Eastern Carolina Organics collects updated demand data from our customers and tailor production to the local market demand. Collaboration with our customers is essential to our success. As part of our mission, we educate the public about the benefits of buying local, organic produce.
