Vital to us all
Condition-measured, made visible, actionable and trusted.
Today, perishables’ lives are becoming more and more complex. Consumer demand, 24/7, 52 weeks a year, has led to global supply chains in which partners are often unknown to each other. This means a lower and lower brand owner, retailer and consumer visibility into the condition of perishables at purchase. Additionally, the rise in specialty perishables, purchased via the Internet, adds even more uncertainty.
Counterfeit? Where made? Who made it? What ingredients? Has its quality been preserved? Was it temperature abused in the shipment? Is it fresh? How fresh? Ask Infratab Freshtime.
