How Apeel Sciences uses Grafana to optimize its treatment processes and reduce food waste

Apeel Sciences is a Santa Barbara-based ag-tech company whose mission is to work with nature to reduce food waste and create abundance for all. Apeel is a family of plant-derived coatings for fresh fruits and vegetables. Made from materials found in every bite of fruit and vegetables you eat every day, Apeel creates an edible “peel” on the outside surface of fresh produce that helps to reinforce the peel and slow down spoilage. By staying fresh and delicious up to two times longer, Apeel-protected produce helps prevent waste, which in turn conserves precious resources like water and avoids greenhouse gas emissions to help mitigate climate change.

Behind the scenes, the team uses Grafana to monitor and optimize the coating processes at packinghouses around the world. In this session, you will learn:

  • How to automate process monitoring eliminating manual equipment checks
  • How to alert stakeholders when something goes wrong
  • How to use Grafana in a remote environment to display and analyze real-time sensor data for the supply chain
