Challenge: no. 6: Slash the Food Waste
Problem: Food waste in households is a pressing issue. Edible food is discarded, leading to economic losses and environmental damage. Wasted food means wasted money and resources used in production. It contributes to greenhouse gas emissions and biodiversity loss. Causes include overbuying, improper storage, misunderstanding expiration dates, and inefficient meal planning.
Solution: Introducing Foodik: a mobile app tackling food waste! The Foodik app sends notifications to consume purchased products before they expire. No more wasted food! Get timely reminders, plan meals better, and reduce food waste. Upload purchased products by scanning receipts or exporting from supermarket apps. Plan meals better, and save food. Don't waste your food and money. Use Foodik.
Impact: Foodik app has a positive impact by reducing food waste in households. Through timely notifications, it helps users consume purchased products before they expire. This minimizes waste, saves money, and conserves resources. Improved meal planning and convenience enhance efficiency. By promoting mindful consumption, Foodik contributes to sustainability and a more sustainable food system.
Feasibility: The main aspect of our solution is app called Foodik, the app should know to recognize different products in two forms of receipts (paper and digital), Those solution exists in a form of text and image recognizing. the second phase to use data base (API chat GPT) to match between the products to their expiration date and to show it in the Foodik app. With a minimal investment and a bit of programing we think our solution is very feasible because all the parts of the app are available in market.
What you built: We created a pilot video of how that application will look like.
What you had before: we didnt have anything:)
What comes next: we are going to build this app . and try to share it.
