The Global Innovation Award is a collaboration between Medicon Village and EAT Foundation. The Jury Chair, Dr Ursula Hultkvist Bengtsson, commented on this year’s winning concept: ”The jury has found the Innoscentia approach, combining a printable sensor technology (smart package label) in order to detect food status a good combination of several of the GIA criteria. For Medicon Village AB a key theme is to prevent diseases and we believe that this technique can really prevent disease and at the same time not waste food that can be consumed safely. We would like to see this product on the market with a global reach out as quickly as possible.”

Innoscentia AB is a privately owned chemical or biochemical company targeting different markets with printable sensor technologies for the detection of certain volatile food components that indicate the degradation of food. We have developed a sensing technology for meat packages that can reveal the actual status of the packaged product. Innoscentia’s forefront technology has the potential to replace date labeling as a standard of telling how good your food is feeling.
