A new standard for food safety and quality

Project description

Digitising food quality control to prevent waste

Half of all fruit and vegetables produced every year never get eaten. In fact, fruit and vegetables have the highest wastage rates of any food type. There is a way to reverse this trend. The EU-funded ImpactVision project will conduct a feasibility study on a new hyperspectral imaging technology for the food supply chain. Designed for food processors, manufacturers, distributors and retailers, this technology can be used to improve food quality, generate consistent products and reduce waste. For instance, it can assess the freshness of fish, the ripeness of avocados or the presence of foreign objects immediately and non-invasively. Specifically, the imaging technology is able to capture real-time food quality data – information that the human eye cannot see.
