LED Lighting Could Cut Food Waste

Can LED lighting really cut food waste? According to a recent study, the answer is yes.

Changing the light bulbs in supermarkets can reduce an estimated 300,000 tons of food waste each year. Most supermarkets use lighting that emits heat, causing food to sweat and deteriorate quicker. Unlike conventional lighting, LED lighting does not emit heat or UV rays, so food stays fresher for longer.

Fridgewize, which offers energy efficient refrigeration and food storage systems can also keep food waste down, and help supermarkets reduce their energy bill. The eco-friendly Fridgewize systems include technology such as anti-sweat heater controls, night covers, and electronic commutated motors.
