SpartanNash Pilots Afresh AI Service In 10 Family Fare Stores


Grand Rapids, Michigan-based SpartanNash has announced a partnership with Afresh Technologies to pilot its AI-powered predictive ordering and inventory management solution at 10 of the company’s Family Fare grocery stores.

“Our partnership with Afresh will help SpartanNash deliver fresh produce to our store guests while also minimizing food waste, which is a key focus area for our company’s ESG efforts,” said Bennett Morgan, SpartanNash CMO. “Leveraging the strength of artificial intelligence and digital workflow will provide our employees with insights to create solutions that benefit our corporate retail store guests.”

Afresh equips SpartanNash’s fresh department managers with modern tools to support fresh ordering decisions. The platform’s insights build upon the expertise of its employees to make fresh food accessible. The tool helps minimize food waste by ensuring the appropriate inventory levels are maintained and always fresh based on insights from guests’ shopping habits.

“SpartanNash takes pride in empowering store leaders with buying decisions and providing the freshest foods for its store guests,” said Matt Schwartz, Afresh CEO.

“Afresh is proud to partner with the SpartanNash team to help better manage the ever-changing nature of fresh. As the only built-for-fresh solution that intelligently navigates hard-to-predict data to drive optimal decisions, Afresh takes a unique approach to solving the complexities of a fresh department.”

Tom Swanson, SpartanNash EVP and general manager of corporate retail, said, “The more time our employees save in the forecasting and ordering process, the more time they can spend on the floor serving our store guests. SpartanNash will continue to implement innovative solutions that improve our shoppers’ in-store experience and help us deliver the ingredients for a better life.”
