Hazel Technologies’ Aidan Mouat Discusses Fighting Food Waste on Good Morning America
CHICAGO, IL - Good morning, produce industry! Fresh fruit aficionados were recently delighted as Hazel Technologies’ Chief Executive Officer Aidan Mouat took to “Good Morning America” this past weekend, highlighting the solutions provider’s innovative advancements in the produce industry and how produce leaders are helping prevent the staggering 43 percent of food waste that occurs in consumer households.
“Hazel Tech® is committed to developing extremely easy-to-integrate solutions for preventing food waste in the supply chain,” Mouat said in an exclusive statement to AndNowUKnow. “As we know, many holidays and special events are the occasions where produce consumption peaks. All of us love to celebrate our favorite traditions together, and that often includes our favorite recipes with fruits and veggies. These spikes in demand can also create opportunities for food waste. With Hazel Tech, we can solve a lot of these challenges. Consumers receive more time at peak ripeness and no added ingredients or residues to their food supply.”
The morning talk show highlighted how food waste challenges increase during high consumption holidays like the Super Bowl. In response, Hazel Tech recently teamed up with Sysco and Avocados from Mexico to optimize their Game Time Guac Box kits, protecting the avocados and creating up to a three-day delay in ripening while helping to maintain flavor.
“The Super Bowl Gametime Guac Box provided the ultimate one-stop shop for anyone craving the perfect guacamole for the Big Game,” Mouat added. “Incorporating Hazel packaging into the Guac Boxes helped ensure that the primary Guac Box ingredient, avocado, remained at peak quality for when it matters the most.”
With its proprietary solutions elevated on a national scale, what innovations will we see from Hazel Technologies next? Stay tuned to AndNowUKnow to find out.
