Enterprise supply chain software helping food brands manage unsold inventory

Material Impact Inc. dba Spoiler Alert is a Boston-based supply chain software company that partners with food manufacturers and grocery distributors to better manage excess and distressed inventory. In working with some of the world’s largest food brands and a national network of discount retailers and hunger relief organizations, Spoiler Alert offers a best-in-class, enterprise software solution and suite of B2B sales management tools that allow suppliers to strengthen their relationships with their customers, bring greater efficiency and accuracy to their surplus inventory management workflows, and keep good food from going to waste. While we care deeply about our customers’ financial and operational improvements, our team’s hearts and minds are motivated by the impact our work has in addressing some of the largest environmental and social opportunities of our generation - at the intersection of food waste, resource deficiency, climate change, affordable nutrition, and hunger. We couldn’t be more excited to be combining critical technology breakthroughs - including workflow automation, augmented intelligence, wholesale ecommerce, traceability, and supply chain management - to an industry that is so critical for daily life. Born out of MIT in 2015, Spoiler Alert is headquartered in Boston's Back Bay neighborhood and is backed by some of the nation's leading food, agriculture, and supply chain investors.
