4 Tips for Fresh Produce Spoilage Reduction (Part 2/2)
May 21, 2019

In our previous article in this series, we tackled everything one would need to know about food spoilage: What it is, what causes it, and why it is such a global problem. But how exactly can food spoilage, particularly within the supply chain, be reduced or halted completely?

Food Spoilage is a Bigger Problem Than You Think (Part 1/2)
May 14, 2019

Food spoilage is a major issue in our economy today. When one thinks about food spoilage, they often think of how food goes bad in homes. It is indeed an issue. Nearly 150,000 tons of food is thrown away in households every day in the US alone. This could measure up to a third of the calories that Americans consume. Out of all types of food, fruit and vegetables are the most likely to be thrown away. While there are certainly things one can do to combat this in our own households, a bigger issue is arising. From farm to store, supply chains are struggling with a food waste issue as well, and it’s on a global scale.

7 Reasons Data Logging is Your Company’s Hero
April 30, 2019

Current AI is like a giant game of telephone. Devices are connected to each other and to available data through the internet of things. You’re probably familiar with it. It’s how you can change the temperature on your thermostat when you’re on vacation out of state. How your home security system can send you a notification if your front door is open. How your phone can recognise which song you are listening to and give you the title and performer without you even asking it. Data is logged and sent to various databases, and that data is used to make sure you get the information you need for a given circumstance. Without data, AI can’t act. In fact, what's slowing down most companies from fully utilising current AI technology is a lack of organised data. Without a doubt, data logging is essential to business success, and here’s why...

For most companies, product returns are an inevitable — if unpleasant and potentially costly — part of doing business.

Logistics: the Invisible Industry
March 19, 2019

Logistics, known for being the "Invisible Industry", is the silent, immense construct that ensures that all of the things we take for granted work. After all, without shipping, storing, distributing, most of us would run out of food fast, not to mention the vast majority of the infrastructure shutting down. Every moment millions of logistics employees work, so that most of us can simply drop at the store to pick up some milk, have heating in our house, and even have electricity.
