Solution #1 is the Crown Jewel of the company: Zest Labs


Intelleflex (Zest Labs) Reducing food loss remains a significant goal for grocery retailers, restaurants, and food service companies, as they look to improve profitability for their investors and sustainability for their communities. Given the amount of food loss in the U.S. market, there is significant opportunity for growth in supplying an effective solution. ZEST Fresh™ represents a breakthrough quality management solution, with demonstrated effectiveness as the only real-time, unit-level freshness management tool that is both practical and immediately cost-effective.


Quality consistency was recently recognized as a primary contributor to food loss in a recent Chainlink Research article, Why Quality Consistency Matters.” Ann Grackin, author and Chainlink Research CEO stated, “Recent studies have shown that even with a modern food supply chain defined by best practices, quality consistency remains a primary contributor to food loss. The industry will need to adopt data monitoring at the product-item-level to determine and mitigate the issues in progress. We believe that ZEST Fresh™ is the best example of a modern solution that addresses quality consistency shortcomings by combining cloud, mobile and cost effective item-level monitoring technology with real-time analytics.”

Solution #4 Pioneer Products


Every year, 11.5 billion dollars of recyclable products are thrown into landfills. 70% of the recoverable material is plastic and is worth over 8 billion dollars.

A forward-thinking group of retail experts recognized that these plastics were a potential revenue stream that was being ignored.

Using innovative technology, Pioneer Products began recovering plastic waste from retail supply chains and creating new consumer products with the reclaimed material.

Pioneer was one of the first to successfully turn waste into new products for retail partners and has increased reclamation every year. Last year, Pioneer converted over 500,000 pounds of plastic into new consumer goods which are sold in retail stores across the United States.

Pioneer’s vertically integrated business model, and relationship to Walmart was recently discussed in Talk Business & Politics
