According to the company’s website, the Clarifruit app can analyze data on such elements as the color, size, firmness, and sugar content of a fruit or vegetable. The app can also detect imperfections such as stains.
The app allows growers to instantly asses produce and transmit the data throughout the supply chain. The goal, the company said in a statement Wednesday, is to cut down on food waste and provide an alternative to expensive and time-consuming manual testing.
