Sensor technology firm, Innoscentia, has partnered with Ynvisible Interactive to enable real-time quality monitoring of food.
Innoscentia has developed materials that combine with Ynvisible’s display technology to provide a dynamic expiry date label for food packaging.
Providing an alternative to static expiry date estimations, the solution aims to detect spoiled food and reduce food waste.
“We are very pleased to be able to join forces with Ynvisible to fuel the development of our digital sensor labels,” said Erik Månsson, CEO of Innoscentia.
“After recent breakthroughs with our sensors, we are now ready to take the next step to produce a prototype, and we believe Ynvisible to be the optimal partner for this because of their experience and cutting-edge technology within printed displays and electronics.
“The results of the project will hopefully move us a big step closer towards disrupting the current labelling system of food and help us create a more sustainable food value chain in the future.”
Philip Holgersson, business developer of Ynvisible, added: “To integrate a display into a label for packaging, three things are crucial: low power consumption, which enables wireless powering, flexibility, which enables a label-like form factor, and low cost, which is a must for integration on packages.
“From that perspective, no other display technology can compete with ours. At Ynvisible, we can offer clients tailored research and development services to incorporate our displays into existing products as we have done for Innoscentia.”
