Today’s consumers crave a deeper, more trustworthy connection with their food. Conscious consumers will pledge loyalty to transparent vendors with robust local programs. These consumers are willing to pay more, visit more and promote their favorite brands to others.
When you factor in that the food industry has to react constantly to Mother Nature and perishability while running on outdated, fragmented IT systems without standardized data, it’s no surprise the food industry has such low margins and wastes up to 30% of the food produced.
Add to that, a workforce that is underpaid, overworked and has levels of addiction, depression and suicide approaching that of US military veterans.
Azoti.com consists of a suite of modules designed for maximum flexibility and interoperability. Once we partner, we meet with your suppliers in a specific market area defined as the contracted distributor’s service area then determine how best to optimize for all based on the realities on the ground.
The Azoti process consists of 3 steps that enable us to fit within your company’s existing procurement and menu design processes -
We charge a subscription fee based on the Azoti.com modules utilized, size of your stores/units and number of markets launched. Markets are defined as your contracted distributor’s service area.

‘Azoti’ (ah zoe tee) is derived from the Italian word for 'nitrogen' - the most abundant element on Earth essential for the sustenance of all living things and an accelerant for plant growth.
