Tracio (Iceland) – Keeping seafood fresh and safe

Tracio is a startup company from Iceland with a team of  Seafood Veterans, IoT experts, and lifelong entrepreneurs that want to change how we understand and manage freshness and food safety for Seafood and most importantly making seafood more sustainable for our planet. Every year 47 million tonnes of food is wasted in European households. More than 10% of that, or 8 billion USD worth of food is still safe to eat. The problem is that the best best-before label can never tell us the true state of the product as it doesn’t take into account the handling and storage in the supply chain. To solve this problem they are developing a new system based on chemical sensors and visual indicators that detect spoilage gases, and with machine learning, offer dynamic expiry dates and freshness indication all the way from production to the fridge at home.
