Greens and herbs are incredibly fragile and have a short shelf life. They tend to shrink, break, and spoil along the supply chain. They readily lose their saleable condition. Excursions to the environmental conditions of the supply chain will likely result in loss of product quality, typically exhibited by a change in color, wilting, and chilling injuries, which correlates with loss of nutritional value.
Xsense® provides a wide variety of options for monitoring the greens supply chain. Cellular real-time dataloggers are available for providing the current status of your greens.
Customers in this market have found the following attributes of Xsense® to be particularly relevant:
- Temperature and Relative Humidity monitoring to prevent wilting and to maintain flavours.
- Dew point monitoring to guard against formation of bacteria and fungus during transportation
