Re-localizing food

Introducing the
Micro-Factory

Thinking big by being small! Micro-factories are scaled-down factories deployed at or near grocery distribution centers. Co-locating production with distribution eliminates expensive and unnecessary logistics, while strengthening supply chains.

Technology

Small-Footprint
Automation

Relocalize employs robotics and automation to produce food at a micro-industrial scale on-demand 24/7. Our systems are designed to operate independently in the smallest possible footprint. “No touch” manufacturing offers maximum food safety, a best practice for a post-pandemic world.

Local automated food production can reduce food costs by up to

50%

Environmental responsibility

De-Carbonization &
Waste Reduction

Trucking food over long distances is a major source of CO2 emissions. By re-localizing food production, our micro-factories eliminate the CO2 emissions from medium and long-haul logistics. By employing low-waste tech, we are also working to eliminate production waste.

Relocalize’s micro-factories cut CO2 up to 90%

Our first product

The Better Ice

Our first micro-factory produces better packaged ice. Frozen water should NOT be trucked cross-country when water is available everywhere. It simply does not make economic or ecological sense. For that reason, ice is the first food we are relocalizing.
Relocalize’s ice micro-factory eliminates water waste (typically 30-50% is wasted)

Grocers: Two Routes To Reducing Transport CO2

Sit down for this one: 29.4% of global CO2 emissions come from trucks carrying freight.
At Relocalize, we believe in responsibly and sustainably feeding humanity by localizing food systems. That means moving away from ‘mass production and long-haul transportation’ to ‘local production and distribution’. The re-localization revolution is starting with packaged ice.
