Research has shown that British families are wasting the equivalent of 24 meals a month, which roughly equates to 7.5% of the average grocery shop, for a family of four.

Foodminder is an award-winning compact food management tool, designed to help reduce food waste, through visual reminder of the expiry status of food and drink products. iterign supported the project from the initial concept, all the way through to the manufacture and distribution of the product.

During the course of the project we helped to produce multiple functioning prototypes, including a multi-material SLA print, to test out the ergonomics and functionality of the product throughout.

The final solution we produced takes inspiration from the traffic light system to notify user of the longevity of the product through the use of an LED, with red being used to depict the expiry date being reached, and green indicating that the food has one or more days until it is out of date.
