unable to control temperature

The lack of information and poor coordination in the aquaculture and fish cold supply chain, result up to 10% of fish being sold with a discount. Even in highly controlled value chains, it is estimated that more than 5% are thrown away before they even get packaged. Why? There are multiple reasons, but quality control is always an important factor. In an EU study, it was found that 35% of seafood, when transported by air, had higher than the recommended temperature, negatively affecting the freshness and quality of seafood.

Taking a closer look:

  • Perishable foods spend a large part of their shelf life in transit & in ‘uncontrolled’ conditions leading to spoilage
  • Food chains are becoming increasingly complex increasing the challenges to maintain food freshness and high quality
  • Poor visibility creates product loss and decreases margin – c.15% of our food
  • Poor product origin visibility leads to reduced brand loyalty
  • Expensive and complex legacy systems
  • Food fraud results to lost sales, heavy fines & reputation damage
  • Poor coordination across the food chain network creates waste
