"A mission to digitise the 'farm to fork' ecosystem."
AMD is proud to be participating in the UK Research & Innovation sponsored SecQuAL programme to develop new infrastructures and digital technologies for a ‘Manufacturing Made Smarter’ project, designed to bring technology to the fore in the farm to fork ecosystem. These innovations need to meet the many stringent demands required by the food and grocery supply chain, the regulatory authorities, and increasingly expected by consumers. Advanced digital supply chain management is helping to reduce waste and improve quality while increasing transparency for consumers in the food and produce sectors through easy-to-use digital platforms.
AMD is contributing its materials technology to a range of solutions through:
developing smart, sustainable and intelligent packaging solutions to reduce waste in the supply chain;
assisting in creating new provenance layering systems to provide high quality and secure retail infrastructures;
ensuring that metallics are minimised within new packaging solution to aid the circular economy;
integrating these technologies within secure IT systems to ensure a low-cost market acceptance;
monitoring of heat-sensitive produce subject to variable climatic conditions to extend shelf life.
AMD addresses these challenges through its novel nanomaterial inks for UHF RFID and photonic crystal time-temperature indicators.
