The color-changing food indicator developed by Bizongo is useful in a number of ways. For one, it ensures that consumers are aware of the spoilage condition of their food in real-time. Secondly, the innovation works toward combating and preventing waste.
The high-tech color-changing food indicator comes in the form of smart packaging labels that change color as time goes by. The process of shifting colors begins after a time-limit and the appearance of these is fully customizable. The higher the temperature of the environment is, the faster the color changes to reveal the state of freshness. As a result, when placed in the freezer, the food indicator responds slower.
Aside from monitoring food spoilage, Bizongo's color-changing food indicator labels can also be used in the supply chain, by pharmaceutical, as well as cosmetic companies.
