FOOD ORIGINS IS AN IOT AND SAAS AGRICULTURE-FOCUSED PLATFORM THAT COLLECTS FIELD PRODUCTION AND LABOR PRODUCTIVITY DATA IN HAND HARVESTED SPECIALTY CROPS
Food Origins provides IOT devices to companies that utilize labor to hand harvest fruits and produce. Food Origins provides unique labels that can be pre-applied to packaging, enabling employees to scan these bar codes in the field registering the location, package, and employee ID. This data is passed via the cloud to provide information regarding the progress of the harvest, the density of the production in the field, and the velocity of the harvest. Through this unique system, farmers and marketers have access to logistical data to ensure they have sufficient crew to complete the harvest and market for the sale of the product.
Food Origin's product data enables retailers and consumers to understand the freshness, food miles and source of the produce. In addition, the data also allow precision comprehension of who and where the produce originated during food safety call-outs.
In addition, the same data is also utilized to communicate the productivity information of the harvesters. Currently, Food Origins is incorporating an employee portal which calls out more productive harvesters as well as crop production and post-harvest trends.
