RipeTime created the RipeTime Sensor as a cost-efficient solution to help maintain a stronger sense of sustainability in the food chain. It essentially helps reduce waste of fresh produce through the cold food chain by providing immediate real-time data.
The data that it gathers leads key information that predicts the speed that fresh produce ripens over time. With this data, important decisions can be made with the right information to reduce waste in the food chain overall. It uses ethylene detection for accuracy, detecting low levels of gas within the atmosphere. This tracks the overall food quality as it goes through the supply chain. Notably, the RipeTime sensor detects the ethylene levels down to 1PPB, which is 1 Part Per Billion.
