MILAN, ITALY—Stop wasting time, food, and money. Shelfy properly preserves fresh fruit and vegetables by extending their shelf life. Made from recycled plastics, Shelfy features Vitesy’s nanomolecular photocatalytic technology to reduce bacteria associated with food spoilage and degrade molecules that quickly ripen fresh fruits and vegetables.
More than 108 billion pounds of food is wasted in the U.S. every year. Food spoilage is the result of improper storage, lack of visibility in refrigerators, partially used ingredients and misjudged food needs. It’s costly, too. To the tune of $218 billion annually for Americans, or an average of $2,000 in wasted food, per household.
Shelfy is a smart, discrete, battery-operated device that can be stored on refrigerator doors or shelves. Its reusable filter lasts up to five years and can be easily removed for cleaning. Vitesy’s nanomolecular photocatalytic technology sucks the fridge air through a mechanical ventilation that leads towards the reusable filter. Shelfy features three operation modes: Eco, Standard or Boost, to accommodate the filter level depending on refrigerator capacity and user lifestyle. Shelfy is UV and ozone-free. All materials of the device are designed to be broken down at the end of its life cycle.
Multiple Product Benefits
“We combined our focus and passion for sustainability and technology to help people at home save time and money while eliminating food waste.” said Paolo Ganis, CEO of Vitesy. “Eating the fruits and vegetables you bought from the grocery store before they spoil can be a difficult task amid a busy lifestyle. Shelfy is a truly eco-friendly product that helps extend the shelf life of your produce to reduce food waste and encourage healthier eating habits.”
Shelfy has a door-opening sensor that connects to the fridge and tracks the number of times a fridge is opened and exposure to bacteria on food. This helps users track the spoilage process and aids in prevention. The Vitesy smart app collects data that can help reduce both the refrigerator’s energy consumption and food waste. Users can access information on how to maintain the fridge and food inside. The app is available on iOS and Android and can connect to other smart devices such as Google Home and Amazon Alexa.
