Food date labels are printed to show the last date of expected peak quality and Ynvisible is taking these labels from static to dynamic with the aid of Innoscentia. Combining digital sensor labels with the Ynvisible display, real-time quality monitoring of food is made possible, which ultimately helps to reduce food waste and better communicate to customers. The smart labels help to indicate when a product is good to eat, should be eaten soon or avoided due to a risk of spoilage.
As Philip Holgersson, Business Developer of Ynvisible, says: "To integrate a display into a label for packaging, three things are crucial: low power consumption, which enables wireless powering, flexibility, which enables a label-like form factor, and low cost, which is a must for integration on packages. From that perspective, no other display technology can compete with ours."
