San Francisco based digital grocer Farmstead that sources and delivers fresh foods from farms to home have launched a new platform Refill & Save, driven by artificial intelligence. The program uses highly reliable AI-powered predictive models to determine the demand for avoiding food wastages due to overstocking and saves time and fuel on delivery routes. Refill & Save also provides customers with recurring orders with discounts on certain items including milk, eggs, fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, and bread. In addition to creating savings for customers, Farmstead hopes to help local farmers increase sales.
