QZense is building an end-to-end IoT solution for fresh food management. The solution gives an accurate assessment of ripeness, spoilage, and shelf life by employing patented tech combining spectral and olfactory sensors to capture the internal quality of food and proprietary machine learning models. By giving key insights on optimal time and price to sell the produce, it enables retailers to reduce losses and capture optimal margins from the same produce.
QZense is a part of JioGenNext: a startup program by Reliance Industries. Qzense is working with Reliance Retail offering the solution for Apples & Mangoes. They are also in discussion with Zomato Hyperpure, Amazon Fresh & Udaan for deploying the solution.
