According to the government, Australia wastes up to 20 billion dollars worth of food every year while there are families struggling to put food on the table. We aim to alleviate this problem while lowering the barrier to entry for business owners to help them better manage their supply and demand.

What it does

The platform allows the seamless integration of multiple sales channels in to a single system. It allows data driven optimisation of inventory management and creates a data landscape of customer and food commodity demand to all for more efficient market response to food and produce supply.

How we built it

The secure open API based on blockchain technology allows allows easy lead generation for any 3rd party

Challenges we ran into

Assumption around the supply chain we made were not practical in some realities Complexity in the vendor landscape

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Its a truly open platform that has a low barrier for entry that will allow businesses, governments, NGOs and consumers to make data driven decision

What's next for The Urban Foodscape

We see the use case of this platform going wider than just the food industry. It can be expanded to all retail segments and urban geographies in an open, efficient and secure manner
