IoT Offers a Fresh Solution for Tackling Food Waste in the Supply Chain
Forty percent. That’s how much food America wastes from farm to fork, according to the National Resource Defense Council. It’s analogous to going to the grocery store, buying five bags of groceries, leaving two of them in the parking lot, and driving away. This decades-old food waste problem has environmental, social, and financial implications. Until now, technology has been ineffective at solving it. Before we talk about where IoT plays a role in all of this, let us discuss why new technology is necessary to address the problem. The Massive Impact of Food Waste Today Food waste contributes eight percent of global greenhouse gas emissions to our atmosphere. Chad Frischmann, Vice President of Project Drawdown—a coalition of scientists, researchers, and writers who have calculated how to cool the planet over the next 30 years by reducing the amount of greenhouse gas in the atmosphere—shared in a Washington Post article, “If food waste were a country, it would come in third after the United States and China in terms of impact on global warming.” On Drawdown’s website, reducing food waste ranks third on their list of solutions to reduce greenhouse gasses.
