Cold Chain Freshness Management

Optimize freshness in real time across the supply chain

The Challenge with Fresh

Managing fresh foods is difficult, as small differences in time and temperature exposure for each unit throughout the cold chain lead to outsized impact on freshness and remaining shelf life. The lack of visibility into food’s actual remaining freshness creates challenges for D2C food brands and online grocers:


of consumers prioritize the quality of fresh offerings when choosing where to buy food, but often encounter inconsistent fresh experiences.


value of profits wasted. Retailers waste 2x the value of their profits due to the difficulty of managing fresh inventory.


food shipments rejected. Over 10% of fresh food shipments are rejected upon arrival due to inconsistent handling in the supply chain.


Cold Chain Freshness Management

Evigence’s Cold Chain Freshness Management combines sensors and data analytics to enable real-time optimization of freshness across the entire supply chain.


Sensors are placed in shipping boxes at the moment of packing and react to aggregate time / temperature exposure.


Upon delivery, scanning the sensor confirms freshness. Non-fresh alerts offer immediate insights, and granular data can be analyzed for freshness comparison


Scan data is aggregated and analyzed by corporate teams via the Evigence Insights Engine to optimize freshness across operations
