Web-based, cold chain time/temp monitoring reduces food waste
TempTRIP®, LLC reduces food waste via its cost-effective time/temperature system which monitors the perishable food journey from harvest to store.
The TempTRIP monitoring process incorporates three basic components—RFID smart cards, RFID reader with optional integrated barcode scanner, and the internet. In addition to recording time/temperature data points at desired intervals, the TempTRIP system also displays the food’s journey online. Cold chain participants can look at a map and be able to tell at a glance when and where it has been subjected to off-spec temperatures. TempTRIP offers information integration which helps quantify degradation impact.
