What are the Anthill Cool Company Awards?
The Cool Company Awards were launched in 2006 as a way for Anthill to acknowledge and celebrate Australian organisations that are doing things differently to bring about positive change. Cool Companies stay one step ahead of the rest. They breed leaders who are rule-makers and rule-breakers. They are trend-setters in attitude and action. Quite simply, they are … cool! More.
Find My Rice [Finalist, Super New Startup Award]
Company: Find My Rice
Dom and Pat were working in a kitchen and needed to find a type of roll Dom had used in a previous kitchen but didn’t have the details. They thought if only there was a hospitality search engine they could source a product without knowing it’s name or who made it.
Later, while working as product developer for SumoSalad, Dom needed that very search engine every other day. The boys decided they needed to stop talking about it and build it. Later, they convinced Joe to come on board. The founders borrowed against everything they had to make this culinary search engine a reality.
Their brainchild, Find My Rice, is a global online platform helping those in the hospitality sector get in touch with each other to find what they do not have, but need. Chefs, suppliers, distributors, manufacturers and producers all over the world can find and connect with each other in seconds not days or weeks.
Find My Rice does this by collating product lists and company details into a comprehensive search engine to the product level providing relevant geolocation-specific search results. Chefs can order online in one form from all suppliers at the same and for suppliers, they can communicate with their current network and new customers all in one place.
Find My Rice is made for chefs and restaurateurs all over the world. The global hospitality market is $2.6 trillion and 99.1 per cent are small and medium size businesses.
It’s for every small supplier struggling to get their product to market, every chef juggling food costs with staying fresh and current to keep customers coming in the door and the growers looking for their own piece of the retail pie or a better distributor deal.
And, at the time of writing, this super new startup already has… 273 how-to videos, 443,329 company profiles and 1,349,156 products listed.
