We can’t deny the fact that households generate a great deal of food waste. According to the UN, 1.3 billion tons of food is lost or wasted every year. For this reason, Silicon Valley-backed biotech startup, Uvera has come up with a countertop food storage device to help in cutting down the wastage of food.
Uvera’s mission is to increase the shelf life of food with a natural UVA-B-C container which will consequently cut food waste in homes. This UV LED device uses the latest food preservation technology to tackle the global challenge. It increases the average shelf-life of meats by 33-percent, fruits by 123-percent, and vegetables by 141-percent, the company claims. The longer food shelf-life will reduce grocery trips per month/week and maybe the cost of food.
Professor Dr. Xiaohang Li from KAUST clarifies;
UV LED is the only technology that can emit pathogen-killing UV light while enjoying unparalleled compact size, reliability, and longevity.
The biotech claims that its light-based technology will be able to predict when fresh food will spoil and also extend its shelf life by up to 63-percent on average within only 30-seconds of use of the device.
