In episode 3 of the Newzchian Podcast, we spoke to Blanca Espinosa, Co-founder and CMO of Alima, a B2B platform aiming to change the food service supply chain in Mexico and Latam.

During the conversation with Akshat, Blanca shed light on the inconvenient methods that are currently used in the food service industry.

How manual processes like emails, phone calls, and WhatsApp messages dominate order placement, and are time-consuming for restaurants and as well as its suppliers.

Furthermore, while finding new suppliers and comparing the prices effectively is a struggle for restaurants; the suppliers themselves wrestle with managing multiple clients, orders, and price lists.

Alima takes these challenges head-on with its innovative features powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI). With the help of AI, their order automated system easily processes purchase orders that are received through various channels by simply uploading screenshots.

This eliminates manual data entry, saving both parties valuable time. Alima sets up online stores for suppliers, providing them with a new sales channel and eliminating the need for physical catalogs.

Furthermore, the platform allows suppliers to set dynamic pricing structures based on factors like volume, giving them more control over their offerings. Alima also offers another time-saving feature, automatic invoice generation, streamlining the financial aspects of transactions.

Blanca discussed Alima's plans for the future, which include exploring social media marketing to target millennial decision-makers in the restaurant industry.

They also aim to use AI further by developing features like recipe creation assistance for chefs and virtual assistants for supplier communication.

Alima also plans to expand their reach beyond Mexico, with Spanish-speaking countries in Latam like Colombia, and Peru to begin with. Brazil, with its vast market size and technological advancements, is a long-term goal they have set.

Join us on episode 3 of The Newzchian Podcast as we dive into Alima's innovative approach to position itself as a major disruptor in the food service supply chain in Mexico and Latam.
