The provider’s innovative technology generates efficiencies that lower food waste while reducing labor, lowering break-even, and increasing profitability for retailers. Through this technology, Picadeli allows for full traceability of its supply chain and operations, as well as QR-code scanning to ensure products do not stay out longer than allowed, signaling the need for refilling and AI re-ordering.

The AI-powered salad bar format will be available at select Schnucks locations in Missouri and Illinois, as well as its Eatwell Market banner locations. Picadeli’s salad bar is customized for each location, learning what ingredients are most sought after in its various markets.

Patrik Hellstrand, Chief Executive Officer, Picadeli U.S.“Schnucks is a digital leader in the grocery space, and their deep understanding of the intersection of technology, operational excellence, and high-quality food makes them an ideal partner for Picadeli,” said Patrik Hellstrand, Chief Executive Office of Picadeli U.S. “Retailers today are faced with the unique challenge of both a tight labor market and the demand by consumers for a memorable in-store experience that drives traffic away from delivery apps and into the store. Picadeli has proven to answer both, and most importantly solves the overarching food problem in America: to provide healthy, affordable, fresh food fast. We have demonstrated that we work in markets big and small and that the need for fast, fresh food is universal. We are thrilled to introduce Picadeli at Schnucks, a well-respected, family-owned business for generations, and to accelerate our growth across the country.”
