I devote a log of our blog ink to issues relating to food safety, quality and reducing the amount of food wasted. A recent article in Forbes talks about five areas where technology can make a difference including temperature monitoring to enable First Expired, First Out inventory to help ensure that more food is delivered fresh. It’s nice when the business press starts to pick up on ideas that are too often stuck within the food industry.
For us to make improvements in the food cold chain, everyone’s going to have to get on the bus: producers, packers, shippers, retailers, consumers and government. I’m hopeful that the attention currently being given to the FSMA in the mainstream media will translate into more attention about what we can collectively do to improve the cold chain.
