Las Vegas, NV, Hong Kong & Zurich, CH, Jan. 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 12 ReTech Corporation (OTC: RETC) announced that Jelmoli, (“House of Brands”) of Zurich, Switzerland will become the newest merchant to be added to the 12Sconti APP network.

The 12Sconti APP helps to solve a major problem for food and grocery merchants.

The waste of perishable goods is a continuous problem for merchants in the developed world. The 12Sconti APP advances the dialogue on how to deal with it by allowing retailers to discount, on an hour by hour basis, foodstuffs and other perishable products like flowers, which otherwise would need to be disposed of as waste or recycled as agricultural compost. Using the mobile-app, a merchant will be able to attract a wide social-economic demographic of consumers who might want to purchase soon to expire products at a substantial discount. In the long term, the APP could also be used as a tool for pre-orders, which will help merchants customize their supply chain resulting in more efficient resource management.

Jelmoli is the largest premium department store in Switzerland, founded in Zurich 185 years in ago. It is known as the House of Brands in its luxury goods department store business. Located at the Bahnhofstrasse, a world famous up-scale shopping area in Zurich, Jelmoli’s “Food Market” is well known for its high-quality products and excellent services.

Angelo Ponzetta, CEO of 12 ReTech commented, “We are very excited that one of Zurich’s most prestigious retailers and Switzerland’s biggest premium department store is joining the growing ranks of 12 ReTech merchant clients. Their participation is a major breakthrough for our 12Sconti APP network. Up until now, the merchants using 12Sconti have enjoyed mixed success in getting their clients to download the APP to their mobile phones. A major retailer such as Jelmoli, with millions of consumers in their database, is a huge win for us. Jelmoli will use the 12Sconti APP to communicate time-sensitive marketing messages to their clientele to stimulate sales of perishable products in their Food Market and restaurant.”

Franco Savastano, CEO of Jelmoli commented, “Jelmoli is constantly working to develop its premium position and to optimize the high-quality environment. Collaborating with 12Sconti APP is part of our strategy to address new consumers in order to meet our sustainability goals. I believe that our customers will find the 12Sconti APP intuitively easy to use and a valuable and convenient tool to find offers on products and services that we will update on a regular basis. We look forward to reaching out to our existing as well as new customers and to be able to sell perishable goods in a timely manner.”

Thierry Bromberger, Head of the Food Market & Gastronomie within Jelmoli commented "Mit dem 12Sconti App können wir ein nachhaltig orientiertes und preisaffines Publikum ansprechen und gleichzeitig Food Waste reduzieren. Dies ist ganz im Sinne von Jelmoli’s Nachhaltigkeits-Strategie. Jelmoli freut sich, als erster Retailer an Board dieser innovativen App zu sein.“

Mr. Bromberger’s comments translated into English: “With the 12Sconti App, we can appeal to a sustainability- oriented and price-conscious clientele while reducing food waste. This is in the spirit of Jelmoli's sustainability strategy. Jelmoli is pleased to be the first retailer on board this innovative app.”

Mr. Ponzetta concluded, "The launch of the 12Sconti APP is the first step in our plans to help retailers increase the number of shoppers in their stores while solving various problems faced by perishable goods vendors around the globe. We also think that Jelmoli will take a close look at our 12 Technology Suite in the future as we can provide a positive value proposition for their luxury goods business."
