Elisa IoT innovation challenge won by an RFID solution

A Finnish competition called Elisa IoT Innovation Challenge was held again during Slush. The competition was won by Foller, who had innovated an RFID system that decreased food waste, the prize was 50.000 Euros. In their solution, the freshness of the food is monitored real-time along its whole life cycle. According to the level of freshness, the pricing and marketing of the food can be constantly tuned, which clearly decreases the waste of unsold food. The service has extended in a direction of cooperating and piloting with a coffee shop chain Sis. Deli. Nordic ID supplied the devices for the pilot.
