Grocery Chain Tests “Smart” Cameras In Fridges To Reduce Over-Buying

May 23, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
British retail grocery chain Sainsbury’s is pilot testing an interesting an interesting solution to food loss in the home. The company has selected 20 families in Derbyshire to try Bosch fridge-freezers fitted out with “smart” cameras that tell a consumer’s smartphone which foods they already have in the fridge at home. The six-month test, part of the company’s “Waste Less, Save More” initiative, is to determine whether the smart cameras will keep consumers from over-buying – and potentially wasting – food. The top five over-bought products, according to Sainsbury’s, are fruits, vegetables, milk, cheese and eggs.
