Innovative technologies that prevent food waste


Technologies that prevent food waste in a wide variety of ways, including but not limited to extending the shelf life of perishables (e.g., through improved design of food packaging, food storage, or refrigerators), aiding in inventory management, or quantifying and characterizing waste streams (e.g., through photo recognition) to identify prevention opportunities. Technologies may be intended for use by any part of the post-harvest supply chain – including distributors, processers, food service providers, retailers, or households.
