Matt has worked in food his whole career: before Afresh, he launched Statfoods, a nutritionally optimized snack food company, worked in food tech at The Production Board, which builds technology-driven companies to solve fundamental problems in Food and Agriculture, and managed operations at startup baking mix company, Simple Mills. He holds an MBA from Stanford’s Graduate School of Business.
Grocery stores are the cornerstones of our communities. The current pandemic has re-confirmed the critical role grocers play in our lives. More than ever, these businesses need smart, practical ways to keep stores stocked with fresh, nutritious food, to empower frontline workers, and to run operations in a sustainable and profitable way. Our technologies make it easier for grocers to manage all aspects of their fresh departments, and, in doing so, dramatically expand their profitability by preventing millions and millions of pounds of food waste. We're excited to use this new funding to bring Afresh to more grocers across the country and around the world.
