Just in the handling and storage of fresh food, €17.160Bn is lost due to misinformation. Sensors help automate the process and ensure more produce gets to stores in optimum condition, meaning higher profits.
A case study from the food industry was conducted on Branston who produces 6.5% of UK total potatoes = £120.7M.
23% of losses in potatoes occur during storage to packing primarily due to blight = £27.7M wasted yearly from storage to packing. Our sensors deployed at mass scale can give indications of blight up to 10 days earlier than other methods. We aim to reduce blight losses by up to 20% saving £5.54M per year, reducing both food waste and carbon emissions.
