Food Industry Resource is an online database of food industry manufacturers and distributors that also offers a list of food industry related services and information. Food Industry Resource provides users with two unique search options; The Food Industry Resource Directory and Food Industry Resource Search Engine.
From the directory section homepage, the user can browse down to the desired category (e.g. electric ranges). Where location is often a concern (e.g. distributors), the user has the option to sort that page by state and/or province. Each listing contains editorial information specific to that category as it pertains to the directory section. All listed establishments are linked to the appropriate section (when possible) of their website, again, as it pertains to the directory section.
The search engine aspect of the site is represented by the search box contained on every page. Here the user can search for very specific information. The search engine generates results from pages within websites contained in the Food Industry Resource directory.
The goal of Food Industry Resource is to make it easy for the user to quickly disseminate through a mass of food industry information.
