About TotalCTRL

The problem we're solving:

1/3 all of all food we produce and costing the world 1,2 trillon euro annually. The problem is so big that the EU is committed to achieving UN Sustainable Development Goal 12.3 to halve food waste by 2030. In order to achieve this, the industry must innovate. Food waste is a systemic problem. Food is wasted due to lack of control over inventory, data insights, expired products, and manual work.

An example is a restaurant with a turnover of 2 million euros, which wastes 20-30% of purchased food before it reaches the guest and where the chef spends 840-1200 hours on manual control of the inventory annually.

Our solution:

Imagine sitting in a restaurant and scanning a code and being able to see where the food is produced and has traveled , while at the same time being offered local experiences. Or as a business owner to be able to track your food from farm to fork. Ensuring food traceability, control over distribution, elimination of food waste and optimized operation. Simply put, TotalCtrl is an all-in-one system that replaces the use of pen and paper, and makes it easy to manage food data. It helps businesses optimize through inventory control and traceability.
