Together with you, we're building the world's largest data market for food.

Localize provides software, services, and expertise to manage local and specialty food products in retail stores. We see a future with increased trust across the food supply chain and stronger connections between shoppers, food businesses, and retailers. Localize works with grocers, food producers, and third-party certifiers who want to make this a reality. The results are proven: better business for grocers, brand differentiation for food producers, and shoppers empowered with information they can trust.

Whether to increase sustainable sourcing, or for insights on product mix – we provide tools to measure and optimize local and specialty food product initiatives.


Sourcing: Product discovery made easy

Effective sourcing is a challenging and resource consuming task for both retailers and food businesses. We have purpose-built systems to connect retailers and producers based on  specific attributes and needs. 

Match in seconds based on:

 • product category
 • location of production
 • distribution or insurance 

 • sustainability attributes
 • certifications                         • and much more 

Labeling: Tell the unique story behind food products

Through labeling of unique geospatial and social attributes and with tools like smartphone-enabled grocery shelf tags, shoppers are empowered with information on the who, what, where and how behind the products they buy.

The results are: more local and speciality food products finding a place on store shelves; and shoppers who are able to identify products with attributes that they are looking for. 


Insights: Measure impact and optimize programs

The key to successful local, sustainable, and speciality food programs is the ability to analyse and evaluate impacts, and use data to glean insights and optimize the program.

Localize’s comprehensive database and powerful analytics tools can turn data into actionable advice and impact assessments. Whether you are looking to source more local, optimize your category distribution, measure the impact of initiatives, or understand more about a portfolio of stores or products – our unique data set and expertise can help.
