Intelligent label to tell all the secrets of olive oil. This is a project born and developed between Italy and Israel calling on the ground:Institute of Applied Physics "Nello Carrara" Sesto Fiorentina, represented by the doctor Anna Grazia Mignanand from the doctor Leonardo Ciaccheri, an oil company associated with anga (Giovani Confagricoltura Toscana) e Verifood LTD The Israeli technology partner is primarily focused on designing, manufacturing and marketing scanners based on spectroscopic technologies. The project, which was presented on September 27 in Lausanne during the optical fiber sensors convention, was implemented thanks to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.
The new technology allows you to integrate on the label what appears to be classic Krcode, but goes beyond a common mobile marketing tool that is limited to information about quality, origin, and manufacturing techniques. Kr4oil Instead, it contains specific nutrition information in bottled oil with immediate product analysis, without the need for chemical processes or interventions that can alter or destroy the product.
Information, for example, the percentages of the main fatty acids, peroxides and polyphenols, are obtained through an innovative process optical data processing came from a modern instrument Verifood Ltd. These values, which are loaded at the manufacturer's base at the time of bottling, are available to the consumer by scanning the KR code.
"This is a revolutionary concept of marking," explains Clemente Pellegrini, President of the Giovanni Confagricoltura Toscana, because it tackles the product in a unique way in order to guarantee consumers and for the benefit of producers who are concerned about the quality of their oil. The project was born from a trade union of international forces, in the field of research, technology and Tuscan agriculture, and we are proud to be part of it. The use of Kr4oil is multiple and simple, which can also be used for control by proposed bodies that would have real-time information about the contents of the bottle without the need for slow and expensive chemical analyzes.
