Vancouver’s FoodX Technologies is expanding into the U.S. market with the goal of delivering eCommerce profitability for U.S.-based grocers regardless of size.
With deployments at large scale retailers like Walmart Canada and Carrefour Group, as well as a mid-sized retailer Meridian Farm Market, the FoodX end-to-end eGrocery Management Solution (eGMS) can be tailored to meet the evolving needs of grocery retailers and changing consumer expectations.
Scalable and customizable, FoodX delivers a holistic user experience with everything needed to effectively operate online grocery fulfillment for grocery retailers of any size whether fulfilled in the back of the store, at a Dark Store, or at a central fulfillment center.
“With the U.S. grocery market projected to surpass $700 Billion across 38,000 stores by the end of 2020, and online grocery reaching over 20% of total grocery sales by 2025, the U.S. represents a significant market opportunity for FoodX and is our next logical step on our growth journey,” said Peter van Stolk, Founder and CEO of FoodX Technologies.
To lead its entrance into the U.S. market, FoodX has appointed industry veteran PJ Stafford to the newly established role of VP Business Development.
“I am thrilled that PJ will join the FoodX family. He is a business leader with the experience and entrepreneurial drive to build the FoodX business and establish partnerships in the U.S. market. We are confident in PJ’s abilities to lead our U.S. business development program and look forward to continuing to expand our international footprint and grow our customer base,” said van Stolk regarding the appointment.
Stafford has extensive knowledge across each aspect of grocery fulfillment technology having previously served as the Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Alert Innovation, where he worked with grocers looking to deploy micro-fulfillment center technology to automate online grocery fulfillment.
