Supply Chain Management
Originally from China and based in Shenzhen, the electronics manufacturing capital of the world, Will has an extensive background working with factories to bring major projects to consumers.
For over two years, the team has been building, testing, designing, and iterating on the Suvie appliance and meal solutions out of our facilities in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
We’ve always had five basic goals in mind, and getting all five right has required an extraordinary amount of time and hard work.
Convenient, high-quality meals cooked from fresh, raw ingredients > We wanted to make sure our appliance could do the cooking without you there, so not having moving arms and stirrers has been part of the challenge. Ultimately we found the solution by combining features.
Ensure a completely safe product > We’ve worked closely with safety consultants with decades of experience designing and testing appliances to make sure the Suvie appliance is the safest possible product.
Design a beautiful appliance > We believe that kitchen appliances should be beautiful and blend seamlessly into any home kitchen, so we designed the Suvie appliance with that in mind.
Offer a world of food possibilities > Central to the Suvie system is providing a wide array of food options — everything from self-cook to any food provider being able to make meals for the appliance. Such flexibility delivers the greatest benefit for users.
Make it effortless to use > Iterating on the product design, we had to make sure that it was easy. We ultimately decided on a traditional oven-like experience and incorporated the feedback from our beta testers to do that.
At Suvie, we understand that what you eat and what you feed your family is one of the most important health decisions you make. As a result, we’re committed to using “clean” ingredients that are simple and do not contain elements that are ever difficult to understand. For example, our proteins are seasoned only with salt, pepper, and oil to aid in cooking. We don’t add anything to our vegetables, and most of our starches are just the simple grain.
We will always be committed to full transparency about where we source our ingredients and what’s inside every delivery you get.
Suvie™ has been working with CommonWealth Kitchen (CWK) from the very beginning, and we have been operating our food order fulfillment with them since the launch of our beta this past summer.
CWK is a Boston-based non-profit that provides shared commercial kitchen facilities plus integrated business and technical support to help entrepreneurs build great food companies and create jobs. CWK is also working to improve healthy food access and strengthen the infrastructure needed for a resilient regional food economy by connecting fast growing startups with local farmers and producers.
Suvie™ has worked with multiple providers of meat, poultry, seafood, sauces, fresh vegetables and starches during our beta test. Our providers supply many of New England's leading grocery chains on a daily basis and are excited to grow alongside Suvie.
