Ida: The end of fresh produce waste
⚠️ 40% of the world’s food is wasted
⚠️Wasting 1kg of avocado is enough to take showers for about 50 days
⚠️Waste due to over-ordering of fresh produce emitted 6x more GHGs than all air transport in Europe in 2022.
But the good news is: an innovative solution has just emerged to put an end to food waste in fresh produce: Ida. And we are thrilled to support Mateo Beacco, Mathieu Grosso, Alex Chataigner and all the team in this adventure and to participate in the €2.7M round just disclosed. 🎉
Ida is a fresh supply chain management SaaS platform for retailers. It uses artificial intelligence to implement a unique management software able to anticipate the ordering requirements of fresh produce for retailers looking to maximize their margins and minimize losses.
Imagine a world where fresh produce is less wasted and no longer out of stock. Awesome, right?
We were discussing about :
