Ami Sugiyama of Secai Marche

This week we are joined by Ami Sugiyama the Founder of Secai Marche, which is a B2B farm-to-table fulfilment platform that streamlines the supply chain through its in-house software which involves warehouse management and demand forecast systems.
This was a great conversation where we talked about her past experience as an entrepreneur in the tea trading business and restaurant business led to the idea for Secai Marche. We explore the details of how the company built it supply network of farmers and connected them to restaurants and retail.
