AT&T helps Farmer’s Fridge deliver fresh food

Farmer’s Fridge is using AT&T Internet of Things (IoT) services to make fresh, wholesome food options easily accessible to those on the go.

Farmer’s Fridge is using AT&T Internet of Things (IoT) services to make fresh, wholesome food options easily accessible to those on the go. AT&T is the primary provider connecting the company’s smart refrigerators on one scalable platform.

Each morning, Farmer’s Fridge drivers deliver freshly prepared food in temperature-monitored vans. They place the meals in connected fridges in locations such as office buildings, convenience stores, hospitals, and schools.

An AT&T Global SIM card and IoT services are part of the fridges. They monitor and automatically adjust the temperature, and they help Farmer’s Fridge ensure its customers only get the freshest foods. That’s why the fridges will automatically shut down after two hours if there’s a power outage.

Farmer’s Fridge also uses AT&T IoT technology to:

•Monitor inventory—Farmer’s Fridge gets reports in near real-time. At close of business every day, a report lets the kitchen know which foods to prepare for the following day and in what quantity. The connected fridges also alert drivers to their delivery route for the next morning, based on the inventory data collected.

•Improve life of equipment—They can monitor the status of fridges; alerts come in right away if maintenance is needed.

•See revenue faster—They can process credit card transactions in near real-time.

“The technological backbone of our business is the IoT platform we have built to optimize the fridges, and AT&T has been an essential collaborator,” said Luke Saunders, founder and chief executive officer of Farmer’s Fridge. “It’s essential to have a scalable solution that is easy to set up with reliable connectivity, so we can grow our business and continue to make slow food available fast.”

Farmer’s Fridge is a fresh food concept that sells nutritious handcrafted salads, snacks, and entrees via automated fridges located in office buildings, hospitals, convenience stores and coming soon, airports. All menu items are made from fresh ingredients available from local produce vendors.  Farmer’s Fridge recipes are handcrafted each morning in a local Chicago kitchen and are stocked daily by 10 am.
