The Challenge

Price Chopper faced the persistent dilemma of efficiently managing their fresh food inventory while mitigating the negative impact of food waste and shrink. Wanting to meet the growing demand for fresh food while minimizing the amount of food that goes to waste, they sought a comprehensive solution that would enable them to:

Accurately forecast customer demand
Optimize production
Manage inventory
Ensure regulatory compliance
The Challenge
Reduce costly recalls
The Solution

Price Chopper leveraged Invafresh’s modular technology and expertise in fresh item management to tackle their sustainability challenge head-on. By integrating extensive in-store production data into intelligent algorithms, Invafresh empowered Price Chopper to forecast demand with unprecedented accuracy. This, in turn, facilitated optimal replenishment orders, production planning, inventory management, and recipe optimization.

The result? The right amount of the freshest products delivered at precisely the right time.

The Results

Price Chopper’s partnership with Invafresh proved to be a game-changer. Each week, they prevented a staggering 20 tons of fresh food from going to waste, resulting in a projected prevention of over 3,000 tons of food waste over the next three years.

The supermarket chain witnessed a significant reduction in inventory shortfalls, shrinkage, and lost profits. By aligning their operations with sustainable practices, Price Chopper succeeded in reducing methane emissions from landfills and minimizing their carbon footprint.

Their remarkable achievements were recognized by the Food Waste Reduction and Diversion Reimbursement Program, which awarded them a grant reimbursement of $100,000. Price Chopper’s successful collaboration with Invafresh not only enhanced their sustainability efforts but also positioned them as frontrunners in the fresh retail industry.
