A comprehensive solution for efficiency, safety and compliance
Every year, food, amounting to 1.3 billion tons is being wasted around the globe. In addition, according to a study by NRDC, supermarkets throw away 43 billion pounds of food per year.
Another report by The Food Trust indicates that up to 50% of the produce is thrown out while still edible. Imagine, even if a fraction of such food waste can be saved, it may benefit nearly 9 million people who die of hunger and hunger-related diseases every year.
With IoT, AI and computer vision techniques in an agriculture or food management system, the Smart Food Monitoring solution analyzes several variables and gives actionable metrics. The solution influences different areas including harvesting, processing, distribution channels and shelf life in retail grocery stores. In addition, with temperature control in freezers and refrigeration systems, businesses can prevent food spoilage and comply with food safety regulations.
