Trust and Transparency for The Food Supply Chain

Project description

Dynamic shelf-life labeling to reduce food waste

Most foods are safe to eat even after the expiration dates have passed. Expiration labels often lead to discarding food prematurely. The EU-funded FreshIndex project proposes a platform for the exchange of data on food quality and safety as well as IoT supply chain data to provide all parties with information on the exact freshness of a food product. For each product, two shelf-life dates will be available indicating (1) when the product will lose its optimal quality and (2) when it will be unsuitable for consumption. Offered as a service to numerous retail chains, consumers can scan the product barcodes with their phones and get detailed information on the product, including its remaining shelf life.
