The rate of food waste in our industry is not sustainable
The world wastes $400 billion of food before it even reaches store shelves. This is not only unsustainable, it’s irresponsible. With FoodX we reduce your waste to 0.5% and show you how to maximize profits by utilizing your commissary kitchen to make meal kits and other high margin offerings.
Plastic bags and single-use packaging are a serious environmental concern
Plastic pollution has emerged as a critical environmental issue. The packaging sector is the largest producer of global plastic waste and governments worldwide are introducing legislation on single use plastics.
Zero plastic bags
Unlike other solutions, our model does not deliver in plastic bags. Municipalities around the world are quickly banning plastics, which will force retailers to adapt.
Reusable totes and packaging
Our system supports the use of reusable totes (bins) and packaging for all orders. That means we keep products fresh and safe without passing the burden of packaging waste onto the end customer.
Lowered food waste
With better visibility on inventory, retailers can purchase more intelligently, turnover stock faster and dramatically reduce their shrink. Some clients have achieved a shrink rate as low as 0.5% of sales, while traditional grocers see food waste as high as 5%.
Our system optimizes delivery routes and maximizes vehicle utilization to lower the number of vans on the road. Where possible, we will deliver in non-emitting vehicles such as bicycles and hybrid vehicles.
Retail partners have the capability to combine multiple banners under one roof, which lowers their carbon footprint and improves unit economics. Our system allows for commingling of inventory and delivery, meaning we can use the same vehicle to deliver for multiple different grocery banners.
Inspired by the circular economy, FoodX Reverse Logistics System leverages returning vehicles to pick-up reusable totes, empty milk bottles and local products from amazing community vendors. The system then intakes and prepares these items to be used in the next wave of orders.
