SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/02/12 -- Intelleflex, a leading provider of on-demand data visibility solutions, today announced that CEO Peter Mehring will highlight the results of a recent pilot project that collected tens of thousands of data points pinpointing multiple opportunities for improving delivered freshness and quality in the produce cold chain, while generating a rapid return on investment. The session, titled "Farm to Fork: RFID-Enabled Food Supply Chain," will address how in-transit temperature monitoring can significantly reduce shrink that results in $35 billion in perishable-food losses globally each year. Mehring will deliver practical recommendations for using temperature monitoring to track, manage and optimize shipments based on actual remaining shelf life, reduce shrink, and maximize the amount of fresh produce available to consumers while addressing food safety regulations.
Intelleflex, a leader in cold chain temperature-monitoring solutions, offers RFID readers and tags that deliver actionable data on perishables and enable cold-chain providers to deploy track-and-trace systems that can monitor individual pallets and packages of perishables to comply with mandates of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and to maximize delivered freshness.
