Afresh's mission is to radically reduce food waste and make fresh, nutritious food available to all. In the multi-trillion dollar global food industry, fresh foods are the most strategically important category. At the same time, most technology has been built for non-perishable items that come in boxes and have barcodes—much unlike fresh produce and other fresh items. This technology gap drives hundreds of billions of dollars of inefficiency every year—inefficiency that manifests as food waste that harms our environment and lost profits that harm the bottom line of thin margin food companies.
Afresh's A.I.-powered, fresh-first solutions optimize ordering, forecasting, and store operations for brick-and-mortar grocers. The results are powerful: grocers using Afresh are on track to reduce more than 20M pounds of food waste annually, while increasing operating margin by 40%, and increasing fresh sales by 3%.
