Using Advanced Technology To Battle Food Waste

July 14, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
A number of technological innovations designed to reduce food waste are making their way to the marketplace. Intelligent food labeling, smartphone apps, intelligent refrigerators, etc., could transform the way consumers shop for food and prevent edible food from ending up in the trash. Samsung’s Family Hubrefrigerator, to be unveiled in the U.K. this fall at a price of nearly $6,000, will feature three cameras, Amazon’s voice-responsive AI assistant, and a WIFI connection to the Internet. The cameras allow shoppers to check what’s in the fridge while in the grocery store. Other innovations include: stick-on “leftover labels” that change color – green means still edible, red means it’s time to toss; and a free app, Olio, which connects people locally with others who have leftover food to give away.
