Growing Adoption of Smart Label to Reduce Food Wastage

With more and more people becoming aware of the food waste problem, companies are starting to adopt smart label technology in order to reduce the amount of food that goes to waste. So far, companies like Amazon, Coca-Cola, and Nestle have been some of the largest adopters of smart label technology, and they’ve seen great results.

There are many different types of labels available in the global smart label market, but the simplest type is an electronic tag that is attached to individual food products. This tag has a code that can be read by a scanner in the grocery store. When the code matches the code on the label, the product is assumed to be safe to eat. This system has had a large impact on reducing food waste in Europe. Between 2010 and 2021, food waste decreased by 30% in Europe using this technology.

In 2021 alone, Amazon reduced food waste by 28% across all its global operations. In addition, they saved an estimated 346 million pounds (153 million kilograms) of food from going to landfills. Another player in smart label market, Coca-Cola also saw great results with their smart label program. Between 2018 and 2021, the company reduced food waste by 2.5 billion pounds (1.1 billion kilograms). Nestle also saw positive results with their smart label program. Between 2016 and 2018, the company reduced food waste by 1 trillion calories. This is a massive reduction considering that in 2016 food waste amounted to approximately 1.3 trillion calories worldwide.

Recently in August 2022, Oli Tec has brought innovation in the smart label market with its advanced technology. Wherein, the smart label makes the expiry date obsolete by indicating quality packaged food on color scale. The label is temperature sensitive and changes it color from yellow to red. Also, it shows blue if stored at required temperature. Currently, the company is in talks with numerous supplier and supermarket based in the US and UK to perform the trials in real life environment. This would further help the manufacturers to understand if their any disturbance in cold supply chain or know if there is any breach in supply chain.
