Minimizing food wastage.

The smart way.

Food waste is a huge problem - both environmentally and economically.

One-third of all produced food is lost or wasted - majority of it in households.

Foller makes reducing food waste economically beneficial.

Foller is a solution for tracking and managing expiring goods

The operating environment of food production is currently undergoing a transition, which will open new earning possibilities to the actors in the field, and force food production and supply chain to reinvent itself.

At the product origin (producer or processor) valuable data such as expiration date, product origin or production methods can be added to the unique product info.

The extended product information can be monitored and utilized throughout the entire supply chain – from the producer to grocery stores - and from the stores to the fridge of the customer.
