FreshSurety announces trial for sensors to ensure produce freshness

FreshSurety Corporation announced today a Technology Trial of its AssuredFreshness reporting service.
 
“The produce business loses 30% of its product from farm to table - a multi-billion dollar problem”, said Tom Schultz, FreshSurety CEO.  “Much of this loss is driven by lack of reliable freshness information throughout the cold chain.  No one knows the remaining shelf life of individual fresh produce cases or pallets.”
 
FreshSurety offers a solution to this problem by reporting produce shelf life anywhere in the world for a few cents per case. The AssuredFreshness system uses low cost, disposable electronic sensors to measure produce-generated organic compounds to determine freshness and remaining shelf life at each stage of the cold chain. 
 
"AssuredFreshness enables First-Expiry-First-Out inventory, big data analytics, and metric-based management to improve supply chain effectiveness and lower costs; it delivers consistently higher quality produce that stays fresher longer at home."
