Food-X Technologies is developing an e-grocery management system for the B.C. government and provincial health authorities to help support food security for Canadians and frontline workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Food-X has received funding from the Digital Technology Supercluster to lead a collaboration of prominent companies, including Spud, Adaptech, 1QBit, ETG and Microsoft to develop the system.
“In this unprecedented challenge to our communities, we are pleased to be collaborating with the Digital Technology Supercluster and some the world’s leading companies to provide a food management system to support our front line essential workers, patients and citizens,” said Food-X Technologies founder and chief executive officer Peter van Stolk. “We are humbled by the work that front line workers are performing and are grateful we can contribute our deep knowledge of grocery management systems to this important effort.”
An e-Grocery management system that manages food quality and freshness and optimizes packing and deliveries will ensure fresh food is delivered to our frontline workers and patients, while simultaneously ensuring food security for Canadians throughout the COVID crisis.
