What if a customer is not satisfied with the order?

We work hard to ensure that farmer groups provide the highest quality produce, however, in the rare event that there are quality issues your first point of contact will be with the farmer group that delivered the product. If there are still issues, you can contact us and we will do our best to help.

Will I be an employee of Farm to Consumer?

You will be your own entrepreneur! In addition, Farm to Consumer itself is not a registered legal entity. We are a collaborative initiative between several stakeholders working to benefit farmers and consumers.

How do I handle payments with the farmer group / customers?

Payment modes will be decided between you and the customers / farmer groups. The preferred current form of payment is electronic (UPI, NEFT, IMPS) in order to maximize hygiene and safety.
