With the help of the Invafresh fresh food retail platform, regional supermarket chain Price Chopper/Market 32 says it prevents 20 tons of fresh food from being wasted each week and is projected to prevent more than 3,000 tons of food waste over the next three years.

The fresh item-management technology from Invafresh allows Price Chopper to meet the growing demand for fresh food while solving the top challenge that comes with fresh retail — food waste or shrink. By integrating vast amounts of in-store production data into algorithms that work to forecast intelligently and accurately, replenish orders, plan production, manage inventory and recipes, and ensure regulatory compliance, Invafresh helps Price Chopper to eliminate inventory shortfalls and assist with on-shelf availability (OSA), facilitating the right amount of the freshest products at the right time.

“Invafresh has helped Price Chopper to produce the correct amounts of product to meet our customer demand while reducing our exposure to excess shrink,” said Patrick Iannotti, director of retail operations, Price Chopper. “We are working on enhancements within Invafresh that will further our effort in exceeding our customer’s expectations for delivering fresh products while limiting the spoilage that ends up in the landfill.”
