Vision - Eliminating food waste in the supply chain to protect global resources and avoid unnecessary CO2 emissions as a result.
Mission - Rapid distribution of food oversupply with a data and AI-driven technology approach, while integrating NGOs and production partners on the demand side.

Goal - SPRK´s target impact is to rapidly match millions of tons of  food oversupply with demand - to move from waste to rescue to avoid.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) orient

our business decisions.

Join us and rethink how we consume.

SPRK’s mission is to make the global food supply chain food waste free by turning millions of tons of food oversupply into a sustainable impact venture using AI to understand and anticipate patterns, enabling a rapid redistribution of oversupply - reducing waste disposal and CO2 while making more food available in cities.

We are a Technology-enabled distribution platform, considering NGOs and local processing options and connecting food over supply with demand partners.
