Foodland Selects Symphony RetailAI To Enhance Shopper Experience


Dallas, Texas-based Symphony RetailAI, a global provider of integrated AI-powered marketing, merchandising and supply chain solutions, has entered into a multi-year license agreement with leading Hawaii grocer Foodland Super Market for a portfolio of AI-based solutions for supply chain, category planning and revenue growth.

Foodland, which was founded in 1948 and opened Hawaii’s first supermarket, seeks to automate and enhance core end-to-end retail practices using Symphony RetailAI solutions.

“As Hawaii’s only locally owned grocery retailer with stores statewide, we are committed to continually innovating and improving to ensure we provide outstanding experiences for our customers while also delivering strong financial results,” said Jenai Sullivan Wall, chairman and CEO of Foodland.

“We undertook a thoughtful, multi-year assessment of vendors to select the best partner to guide us through this transformational change. Symphony RetailAI emerged as the clear leader. The company’s deep understanding of the grocery business, focus on strong long-term partnerships and leading AI-based solutions will position our company to thrive not only in the near-term but into the future as well.”

“Retail excellence in today’s fast-changing market demands a strong foundation of end-to-end AI-based and data-driven solutions,” said Chris Koziol, CEO of Symphony RetailAI. “We’re excited to team with Foodland to deliver innovative enterprise capabilities that will increase efficiencies and deliver measurable business and financial impact. The strong teamwork between our companies creates a compelling foundation for significant mutual success, and we look forward to a long and productive collaboration.”

Foodland’s initial implementations include master data management, kitchen management, promotions evaluation and planning and direct store delivery. Later phases will leverage Symphony RetailAI’s integrated category planning, including store insights, planogram automation, intelligent clustering and shelf planning. Solutions will be deployed across Foodland and some of its sister companies.

Foodland Super Market is Hawaii’s largest grocery retailer and the only locally owned supermarket business with stores statewide. It was founded in 1948 by the late Maurice J. “Sully” Sullivan and was the first supermarket to open in Hawaii.

The company currently has 31 stores and employs more than 3,200 employees at Foodland, Sack N Save and Foodland Farms stores on four islands. The company is known for its service, quality perishables and commitment to the Hawaii community.

Symphony RetailAI is a provider of role-specific, AI-powered revenue growth management solutions and customer-centric insights for retailers and CPG manufacturers across the entire value chain. The company’s AI-enabled software provides users with prescriptive and preemptive recommendations that make it easy to identify end-to-end growth opportunities, activate plans and realize measurable profit and revenue growth.
