Population growth and limited available land for farming have strained our capacity to produce enough food. From farm to fork, Ocean Insight teams with food and agriculture experts to create solutions that improve food yield, quality, safety and integrity.
Helping the Food & Agriculture Industry Grow
The agricultural industry provides fresh, wholesome food to feed the world, making it look so easy that most people take it for granted.
At Ocean Insight, we recognize the path from farm to fork is both challenging and evolving. That’s why we partner with food and agriculture experts to create solutions that improve food quality quickly and at scale.
From food lab development and industrial sorting and grading to real-time field analysis, Ocean Insight helps refine and innovate food production.
Solutions from Soup to Nuts
Ocean Insight provides sophisticated optical sensing equipment and applied spectral knowledge to uncover new objective data the food industry can use to streamline production, cut costs and improve the safety of our food supplies.
- Dedicated solutions provide instant feedback, and are portable and affordable
- Our compact, modular systems can be configured for specific solutions
- A large toolbox of sensing tools is available, plus our expert support on measurement techniques and applications
Ocean Insight is using its tools and know-how to address challenges facing food and agriculture producers: growing and maintaining crops, assuring quality and safety throughout the food chain, and maximizing efficiency and productivity.
Solutions for Food and Agriculture
High Speed Food Sorting
Traditional food sorting methods rely on the expertise of workers to make quality assessments based on the human eye. Furthermore, without knowledge of the internal quality of produce, visual inspection suffers from “freshness blindness.” Today, Ocean Insight’s optical sensing hardware and machine learning can help companies dramatically improve quality and safety, and cut down sorting time to just milliseconds. Chemical information from spectroscopic analysis combined with analytical models can even predict shelf life.
Working with greenhouse operators to ensure LED specifications meet limits set for optimum crop growth.
Providing objective data to assure crops are free from residual pesticides.
Helping protect against commercial food fraud by verifying the authenticity of spices, meat, fish, grains and other foods.
The fruitful collaboration [between Lugo and Ocean] began with us sending samples for the first examination and has included regular meetings with the technical teams from both companies. Sharing knowledge in optics, mechanics and software brought us, in a short time, to the desired result.
