How tech facilitates matchmaking

Moving from structured data to reduced food waste.

Technology

At SPRK, we want to build and operate a robust and global B2B exchange system to eliminate food waste in the supply chain and reduce harm to the climate. While the supply chain is currently broken, we can create a safe space for participants to express their true preferences in terms of food supply and match suppliers with demand partners. The first step to driving down food waste is to build inventory and visualize the available type and amount of surplus. We then add preferences and surplus information to the structured data mix and let algorithms optimize matches based on one goal: facilitating the rapid distribution of surplus while minimizing the CO2 footprint.  

"We believe technology is the key to a scalable solution to the food waste problem."

- Adrian Krüger, Senior Product Manager -

Describing surplus

in code

Not all apples are created equal. Some varieties are sweet, some acid. They might have small defects that are important to some demand partners. Others are packaged in ways that demand partners can’t handle. And sometimes it doesn’t make sense to send them across the country even though there’s a match. At SPRK, we capture over 50 data points for each product so demand partners can see what’s available at a glance.

Understanding your requirements

We believe there’s a match for all surplus out there – it just hasn’t been discovered yet. Help us to understand what food you need. When do you need it and what do you need it for? The preferences of a canteen differ from those of a manufacturing business, despite the fact that both may need to source apples. Demand partners set preferences and select properties to create the perfect match. If available, we add your historical sourcing data to suggest matches.
