With the world’s resources at risk of exhaustion, it is imperative to avoid food waste. The average American throws away 40 percent of the groceries they buy, and innovative inventions are hoping to combat this. We have seen the creation of a dynamic pricing system which could revolutionize grocery shopping. The technology allows consumers to purchase products close to their expiration dates for a lower price, preventing food waste. The invention of the FridgeCam also combats food waste, this time in people’s homes. The smart fridge camera sends users alerts when food is soon to expire. The Chicago-based startup Ovie is very similar, also alerting users when food is going out of date. However, this is done in a different way, with containers that use smart technology rather than a camera.
