Afresh Technologies Partners with The Save Mart Companies

Nov 18, 2021

Nov 18, 2021 Afresh Technologies Nov 18, 2021 SAN FRANCISCO  -- Afresh Technologies, an AI-driven technology company building solutions transforming the fresh food supply chain, announced today that it is partnering with The Save Mart Companies, California's largest family owned grocer, on an upcoming pilot program. The Save Mart Companies will bring Afresh's Fresh Operating System into select Save Mart, Lucky California and FoodMaxx stores throughout California. "Afresh is using an innovative approach to solve problems that have historically been overlooked, and we're excited to drive results that support The Save Mart Companies' priorities," said Matt Schwartz, CEO, and co-founder, Afresh. "The Save Mart Companies' stores are already leaders in fresh produce, given their location in the heart of California's agricultural community, and our AI-driven approach will help their stores optimize its produce department." Afresh's system helps supermarkets plan in advance by using AI to analyze previous demand and data trends. This allows grocers to keep fresh food for as little time as possible, reducing their losses and the amount of food waste. According to Afresh Technologies, stores using their programs have reduced food waste by 25%, out of stock inventory by 80%, and increased department sales by 3% on average month after month. Afresh's AI-powered solutions will provide The Save Mart Companies stores with efficient truck-to-shelf ordering and inventory tracking that reduce back stock, help ensure lead ad items are plentiful and in stock and increase the longevity of its fresh produce before it even leaves the store. "Since its inception, The Save Mart Companies has embraced innovation – from distinctive in-store experiences and hyper-local product offerings to a robotic grocery delivery service. Afresh Technologies should boost produce operations efficiency and help support our department managers stock and maintain the freshest product for our shoppers, all while reducing food waste" said Hal Levitt, senior vice president of retail operations and supply chain. Afresh Technologies is a one-stop-shop for all produce ordering, including bulk ordering traditionally done with pen and paper. Afresh delivers order recommendations that increase in-stock rates and improve shelf life, ultimately offering shoppers a better experience.
