SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Zest Labs, an AgTech company modernizing the post-harvest fresh food supply chain, today announced that it will be featured on a webinar with Supermarket News to discuss how grocers can reduce fresh food waste and improve product margins by six percent or more while increasing customer satisfaction. Zest Labs is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ecoark Holdings, Inc. (OTCQX: ZEST), to be renamed Zest Technologies, Inc.
The retail grocery business has never been tougher. Retailers are being hit from all sides with new low-price competitors, dramatic increases in freight costs, and customers increasing demands for visibility and accountability about the freshness and authenticity of the fresh food they buy. The result: product margins are being squeezed and grocers are trying to contain costs.
Webinar attendees will learn:
- Why traditional approaches to fresh food management lead to waste and reduced product margins
- The role of new technologies including blockchain, IoT and analytics in cutting costs
- Three ways to quickly reduce fresh food shrink and improve the bottom line
