StockBase Inc. delivers unneeded emergency supplies that companies stock to local food support societies such as food banks. Students of Yokohama City University launched the project and officially started the business in April 2021. In August, the company was selected for YOXO Accelerator Program 2021, which supports start-ups in Yokohama.
Companies that have unneeded emergency supplies can donate them to StockBase. That information They can do so through the website “Stock Pantry,” and registered organizations can pick up the items they need. StockBase delivers supplies to close organizations when the company replaces its emergency supplies. Items vary from water, rice, canned bread, ready-to-eat foods, porridge to energy bars. This whole cycle contributes to the local community while reducing food waste.
One of the aspects of StockBase is that it prevents forced donations and receiving. instead, every item goes to the appropriate places. For example, food goes to diners that supply meals to children. Water goes to carpenters or runners to prevent heatstroke.
StockBase will continue to support companies in possession of emergency supplies so that companies can plan and manage their supplies.
