Crisp CEO and Founder Are Traasdahl was invited to Davos ahead of the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting to speak with CBS News about using technology to revolutionize the global food supply chain.
Every year, the world’s top political and corporate leaders come together in Davos, Switzerland – a landmark Alpine resort village and the highest city in Europe – for the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting. This influential gathering, more simply known as Davos, calls for discussion of the evolving challenges facing all nations. This year’s key themes focus on climate change and “inclusion, diversity and how economies can be developed to meet the needs of everyone.”
This year, Crisp CEO and Founder Are Traasdahl was invited to Davos to speak with CBS News about using technology to revolutionize the global food supply chain, a topic closely connected to the climate crisis. In this exclusive feature, Traasdahl talks about how Crisp’s platform can provide the necessary transparency to prevent the third of all food produced that is wasted before it reaches consumers.
This food waste contributes to around 8% of all greenhouse gas emissions, according to the UNFAO.
By ingesting $2.5T worth of distributor and retail transaction data for over 500 suppliers to-date, Crisp is helping to account for food through its lifecycle around the globe, assisting businesses in making better, more optimal decisions about where the supply is needed – and redirecting it from areas where there may be a wasteful overabundance.
