Doing business the old-fashioned way – being hyperlocal and transparent – is a vital component to how Bi-Rite operates today. Working directly with over 200 hyperlocal growers, makers, and producers, this regional food network amplifies our efforts to ensure our local economy thrives, while addressing the environmental and social issues related to our damaged food system. It also creates a transparent accountability triangle between us, our guests, and our farmers, producers, and ranchers. Everyone works together to ensure that the people making the food are treated well, that the food is made in a responsible, sustainable manner, and travels the shortest distance possible. All of that translates into delicious, nourishing food that you can feel good about eating and feeding to your family. In fact, we certify that everything we sell and serve is delicious.
Bi-Rite has become known for being a catalyst of success for many local San Francisco brands, such as Nana Joes, Aedan Fermented Food, Clairsquares, and NeoCocoa. We love helping makers tell their stories so you can learn about the passion and artistry in their food. A lesser known, but equally important role Bi-Rite has assumed over the years is as a community builder, working with others to create a healthier, more equitable San Francisco for everyone. We provide our time, food, financial support, expertise and passion to hundreds of local San Francisco organizations every year. As an example, during the holidays, we work with organizations such as Free the Need and Gobble Gobble Give to provide nourishing meals to our unhoused neighbors. When you choose to shop your values and visit Bi-Rite, you’re helping us directly uplift the work of our community partners. And we’re grateful to you for that!
