KEEP-IT-UP: Redefining shelf life monitoring in the global food industry with a new intelligent Time-Temperature Indicator for perishable products

Project description

A revolutionary shelf-life monitor measures time and temperature of products in the cold chain

Most packaged food products come with a label informing consumers of the expiration date. When it comes to the cold supply chain, food spoilage is critically dependent on temperature as well. The Norwegian SME Keep-It Technologies has developed an indicator that relies on a patented chemical process to monitor the time since production and the temperature to which the product has been exposed. The solution will reduce food waste, prevent foodborne infections and minimise manufacturers’ financial losses. The EU-funded KEEP-IT-UP project will support the company in optimising the product and production line to begin international expansion.
