Mumbai’s Tech Mahindra has created a platform designed to manage the supply chain for fresh produce in collaboration with German software giant SAP.

The platform, called FEEDS, will create a connected supply chain capable of tracking and maintaining food freshness during each step in the supply process. Tech Mahindra has cited a “lack of real time visibility and traceability” in the current produce supply chain

FEEDS is aimed at helping food manufacturers and large retailers reduce their wastage and improve the shelf life of fresh products.

The platform is built on SAP’s HANA Cloud platform and utilises IoT, Big Data and Mobility to create a minute-by-minute picture of the supply chain.

Rudolf Held, Vice President, Head of Global SAP Co-Innovation Labs, said in a statement: "FEEDS is part of the partner led co-innovation with SAP Co-Innovation Labs. This partnership demonstrates Tech Mahindra's commitment to provide sector focused digital transformation."
