Nearly 45% of all fruits and vegetables grown
worldwide are never eaten and wasted. We use AI to help reduce food loss throughout the fresh and perishables value chain by connecting and optimising supply and demand with our trading & optimisation platform, OmniOrder®
Who are we?
Digitalising the fresh and perishables supply chain
We are an Agtech company dedicated to digitalising the fresh and perishables supply chain with OmniOrder®, our AI-driven digital wholesale trading & supply chain optimisation platform that helps growers and wholesalers reach more customers, streamline inventory and ordering processes and reduce waste through demand prediction and automated supply matching.
We believe that it’s time for AI-enabled supply chain optimisation to get out of the realm of expensive custom software and be put to use slashing the rate of loss in the fresh and perishables supply chain.
Our three step approach
Delivering value at every stage
Replace inefficient manual ordering and inventory management processes with our digital trading platform, OmniOrder®
Make better supply decisions by viewing market and price insights, while optimising inventory to reduce losses and downgrades due to overstocking and lost sales due to understocking
What we offer
Fresh food supply chains are prone to volatility in supply and demand. This, plus the perishable nature of fresh means that most primary produces are price takers in spot markets. By leveraging sales through OmniOrder®, whether direct or through a wholesaler, producers can access more granular market signals to make better decisions and promote their brands.
OmniOrder® was built first and foremost for the wholesale fresh produce industry, but the platform caters to any wholesale business dealing in perishable food:
- Dry Goods
Demand Forecasting for Fresh and Perishables
Current forecasting methods are generally manual and based on historical data only. Typical forecasting methods involve manually identifying the same week in a previous year or year(s), which are considered to be similar to the current year, and manually adjusting based on experience and gut feel to account for new information like competitive activity, price movements, promotions and weather.
Simple statistical forecasting often doesn’t provide an improvement over manual methods based on experience.
However, machine learning based methods allow more variables such as broader price data, weather data, public holidays, geographical and socioeconomic data to be incorporated leading to greater accuracy than manual methods.
Promotional Planning for Fresh and Perishables
Fresh is one of the key drivers of growth for retailers. Traditional promotional planning systems are not suited to the continous supply and demand management that is needed for fresh, and are based on demand only. This makes it hard to make optimal decisions accounting for both supply and demand, leading to losses for growers and unnecessary discounting.
Fresh specific promotional planning allows greater flexibility in managing promotions and incorporating the latest supply and demand information.
Inventory Management and Stock Optimisation
Optimising inventory means determining the exact quantity of stock for a product which is most likely to meet demand and therefore minimise losses due to overstocking and waste, while also minimising losses due to understocking and lost sales.
As demand is always variable and can never be predicted perfectly, optimisation aims to weigh up understocking costs like lost sales against overstocking costs like waste. Optimisation is always based on a demand forecast which can be manually created, or the result of a statistical or machine learning model.
