A2Z Smart Technologies Corp. ("A2Z") ("Company"), (NASDAQ: AZ) (TSXV: AZ), is proud to announce its commitment to sustainability and reducing food waste through its innovative Cust2Mate platform.
According to 2023 statistics, approximately 30 percent of food in American grocery stores is thrown away, with retail stores generating about 16 billion pounds of food waste every year. Wasted food from the retail sector is valued at about twice the amount of profit from food sales.
A2Z Cust2Mate is taking action to address this issue and promote sustainability in the retail grocery supply chain. Through its platform, Cust2Mate enables retailers to optimize their supply chain and reduce food waste by promoting expiring foods to shoppers in real-time. This allows retailers to minimize food waste while also increasing profitability.
"Our commitment to sustainability is an important part of our mission at A2Z," said Guy Mordoch, CEO of A2Z’s subsidiary, Cust2Mate. "We believe that our platform has the power to make a real difference in reducing food waste and promoting a more sustainable retail grocery supply chain."
The Cust2Mate platform is designed to streamline the retail shopping experience by scanning purchased products and enabling in-cart payment, allowing customers to "pick & go" and bypass long cashier checkout lines. This results in a more efficient shopping experience for customers, less unused shelf space and manpower requirements, and advanced command and control capabilities for store managers.
A2Z Cust2Mate is proud to be at the forefront of efforts to reduce food waste and promote sustainability in the retail grocery industry.
