We strive to cut the 2.5 billion tons of food wasted in the supply chain each year in half by 2032.

1

stop food waste in the supply chain

Fix the broken food supply chain and make use of the surplus

2

reduce co2

Help to tackle climate change and avoid unnecessary CO2 emissions

3

save money

Reduce disposal costs for suppliers and cut the price of sourcing for demand partners

4

save the planet

Scale beyond borders; invite partners to join an ecosystem and reuse surplus food

The food supply chain is broken & inefficient

Food overproduction leads to 40% of food being wasted globally

Most food is wasted in the food supply chain – before it gets into the hands of consumers

Food waste is also one of the main sources of CO2 emissions, producing 6.3 gigatons of unnecessary CO2 each year

Success is rooted in strong partnerships

WE USE ALL FOOD​
We stand shoulder to shoulder against climate change

What if there was a solution to both problems?

Welcome to SPRK!

With our AI-driven platform, we aim to eliminate food waste in the global supply chain. Our approach is to transform a major problem into benefits and a huge business opportunity for SPRK’s partners. Picture a food supply chain without food waste!

 

We strive to:

avoid oversupply, i.e. waste in the supply chain

move from waste to value

protect resources and the environment

facilitate systemic change

Food overproduction leads to 40% of food being wasted globally.

40% Overproduction and food waste are the result of an inefficient food supply chain. Food waste translates into massive CO2 emissions that are completely unnecessary. Every ton of food wasted generates 2.5 tons of CO2 equivalents. To compare, the CO2 emissions produced by food waste are five times higher than the CO2 emissions caused by airplanes.

Moving from waste to value!

Aligning surplus food with demand allows waste to be used, creating circularity and revenue streams. By building and operating a global B2B food exchange, we can efficiently distribute perishable food surplus instead of allowing it to go to waste. Aided by technology and driven by conviction, all SPRK partners work with us to drive down greenhouse gas emissions and protect valuable resources.

 

We believe that the problem can be cracked together. That’s why we’re in the process of building strong partnerships with players in and outside of the food supply chain.

Creating a future
free of food waste

Efficient matchmaking in real time!

Report surplus food

Visualize surplus food from farmers, importers, wholesalers, retailers, and processing companies so the market knows what’s available.

Understanding patterns

Analyzing available surplus food and demand preferences makes the supply chain more resilient; understanding patterns allows us to prepare for what’s coming.

FACILITATING MATCHMAKING

When oversupply meets demand, we redistribute surplus food where it’s needed most among catering companies, canteens, manufacturers, and non-profit organizations.

4 ingredients for success

MAXIMIZE THE IMPACT

RESOURCE EFFICIENCY

More than 2.5 billion tons of food is wasted globally each year due to an inefficient supply chain: a huge problem but a huge opportunity at the same time, to fix one of the biggest problems of our time.

Technology

Technology facilitates efficient matchmaking at scale. We can go from mitigating the impact of food waste to avoiding it all together.

Climate Impact

Food waste contributes to 10% of global greenhouse gas emissions. This is five times higher than the emissions from global air travel – another huge opportunity.

Partnership

Stronger together. We believe in honest and committed relationships with business partners and NGO partners. Only together can we crack the global food waste problem.

How far we’ve come

SPRK was founded in March 2020. So far, we’ve redistributed 800 tons of food to partner companies, which all included surplus food.

> 60 partner companies and network partners

> 800 tons of food redistributed

> 2.000 tons of CO2 equivalents saved

> 11 wonderful board members

Sustainable Development Goals

The United Nations introduced 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests. At SPRK.global, we base our actions and our business model on these SDGs. We focus on SDG 12, 13, 17, and 2 in particular. Driven by technology, SPRK proactively builds bridges between business, society, and impact to bring systemic change to our planet.

Stronger together with you!

Success is rooted in strong partnerships

We believe that we can only crack the problem if industry participants team up together. That’s why we’re seeking mission partners from all affected segments of the supply chain – from farmers, manufacturers, retailers, and restaurant owners, down to the caring individual.
