US-based consumer technology company Farmstead has entered a new partnership with on-demand logistics provider Postmates to provide grocery deliveries within 30min across San Francisco.

Farmstead is a new artificial intelligence (AI) powered digital micro-grocer that sources and supplies fresh food directly from farm to the customer’s home in an hour.

Postmates has launched its new Fresh mobile app, which will offer a wide range of high-quality local produce for consumers to choose from.

“Together, Farmstead and Postmates are making grocery delivery of local food more convenient and accessible in the Bay Area.”

Fresh is the first-ever grocery product launched by the company in Manhattan, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Postmates business operations and strategy vice-president Vivek Patel said: “Together, Farmstead and Postmates are making grocery delivery of local food more convenient and accessible in the Bay Area.

“We are excited to expand our offerings on Postmates with companies that are sustainable and help eliminate food waste so we can continue to build an efficient, eco-friendly grocery delivery experience to our customers.”

Deliveries throughout San Francisco will be carried out by Farmstead.

Farmstead CEO and co-founder Pradeep Elankumaran said: “By connecting Postmates to Farmstead’s micro-hubs, we can deliver the freshest, locally grown groceries, as we continue to reinvent the grocery space and replace time-consuming last-minute trips to the supermarket.

“By integrating into Postmates’ on-demand delivery network, Farmstead’s AI-enabled grocery hubs can be quickly and easily deployed anywhere in the US to instantly meet consumer demand.”

The company’s software-automated micro-hubs can pack a large online order of groceries in less than five minutes, thereby significantly reducing their delivery time and ensuring that a customer’s Postmates order arrives within 30min.
