Otta's take on Afresh Technologies

Theo Margolius headshot

Theo Margolius

COO of Otta

Antiquated inventory management systems are detrimental to grocers money and time. Generalized and paper-based systems result in the over-purchase of stock, and this results in waste of fresh food and financial budgets.

Afresh has created an operating system designed specifically to manage inventory and sales of fresh food. The system is powered by AI to help provide forecasting and analysis of inventories, helping grocers stock more economically and thus waste less fresh food.

The company has grown rapidly in recent years, and they have now partnered with over 3,000 stores in 40 states across the US. Clients include Albertsons, WinCo Foods, Heinen's, Save Mart, Bashas, and Cub Foods.
