The Covid-19 crisis magnified a disconnect between those who need food and those who can provide food. The shutdown forced a disruption in the entire food supply chain causing excess food to build up and be destroyed while record numbers of people visited food banks for the first time. Modifi software is helping to close this gap. Modifi provides a No-Code set of tools for building the easy-to-use apps that manage this complex, multi-stakeholder problem. Well-suited for handling the complex logistics of food ordering and production across multiple restaurants, Modifi is a perfect fit for its suite of products and services. The Modifi apps link restaurants to the diverse customer organizations in a dynamic, real-time ecosystem.
FoodPair is a new company built to solve the food and supply chain crisis that was exacerbated by the Covid pandemic. “Restaurants have always struggled to forecast business and plan for labor and supplies, and farmers build their future business based on current data and insights. Today the supply chain is broken and yet we are seeing record numbers of people visiting the food banks,” says founder Marie Gill. FoodPair’s mission is to link the need for food made by LOCAL restaurants to solve a two-sided problem – employment in the food service industry and food insecurity. “Because we are building this to suit the restaurant operators, our insights from early field tests means we need to adapt the model. Modifi is able to handle the required adjustments quickly because apps can be built or tweaked on the fly. Now, we are solving problems that ripple through the supply chain, from farms to freezers. The more we learn, the faster we can adapt the platform to solve the need. The food supply chain is broad, but Modifi can adapt to each stakeholder quickly. ” said Marie Gill.
