Sysco Teams Up With SAVRpak to Strengthen Delivery Operations; Judy Sansone and Greg Maselli Share
HOUSTON, TX - In our industry, finding the perfect partner is akin to Goldilocks and the Three Bears, eventually you are going to find the one that is just right for your vision. This is the case as Sysco Corporation has announced an exclusive partnership with SAVRpak to deliver its patented food preservation technology to independent and local chain restaurants across the nation. Through this new agreement, Sysco will add SAVRpak “freshness packs” to its Cutting Edge Solutions platform, making the technology immediately available to its customers.
“We are very excited to offer SAVRpak to Sysco’s customers through the Cutting Edge Solutions platform,” said Judy Sansone, Sysco Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer. “Takeout meals will continue to be an important offering for restaurants, and this new technology will support our customers’ success by ensuring that meals provided through takeout, delivery, or curbside travel well and taste the same as dine-in.”
SAVRpack is a frozen, peel-and-stick patch that removes moisture from the air of food containers, keeping it away from the meal and ensuring both hot and cold foods remain fresh in transit. According to a press release, the patented technology was developed by an aerospace engineer.
The unique company’s solution is paper and plant-based, uses no chemicals, and is expecting to receive its biodegradable certification later this year. SAVRpak has also been named a winner of the 2021 P&G Ventures Innovation Challenge and Best Sustainable Packaging in the 2021 World Food Innovation Awards.
“The partnership with Sysco is a gamechanger for SAVRpak,” commented Greg Maselli, Co-Founder and Co-Chief Executive Officer of SAVRpak. “Sysco’s unparalleled distribution network will help us get our food preservation technology into the hands of restaurant operators around the country and change the way they serve takeout and delivery food.”
