    Chicago, IL – June 17, 2019 – Food Freshness Card was voted “Best New Safety Solution” at United Fresh 2019.  This is the third year in a row the patented technology has been recognized by the United Fresh Innovation Awards, celebrating 10 years of honoring the best in innovation and excellence for the food industry.

    Food waste is a global $5 billion problem and accounts for 8 percent of greenhouse gas emissions.  Food Freshness Card utilizes US Patented Technology to naturally extend the shelf life of many fruits, vegetables, and breads up to 50 percent from farm to fork.  Food Freshness Card works inside or outside a refrigerator, and can save money and waste in restaurants and home kitchens, as well as supermarkets.

    Seven Produce Innovation Awards winners were recognized at United Fresh 2019. This year’s honorees were voted on by show attendees from a total of 48 contestants.   “This year’s Innovation Awards winners won from a field of excellent and qualified competitors,” said John Toner, United Fresh’s vice president of convention and industry collaboration. “The exceptional creativity of these seven winners helped them stand out at United Fresh 2019, the home of fresh produce innovation.” 

    “Innovation starts at United Fresh,” said Tom Stenzel, United Fresh’s president and chief executive officer. “The innovation of our member companies shape the entire produce industry and show attendees have the unique opportunity to see that ingenuity up close at United Fresh. Congratulations to this year’s winners and thank you to all participants for showcasing your creativity.”

    Food Freshness Card has now won 10 major awards around the world, including the coveted Gold Edison Award for Best Food Tech Solution in 2019.

    Inventors Rick and RJ Hassler are achieving great success in reducing waste in supermarkets, where the installation of Food Freshness Cards has reduced waste by as much as $ 5,000 per month. “It is truly a win/win for supermarkets and their customers and employees,” said Rick Hassler. “By utilizing the Food Freshness Card in the store, chains can instantly reduce waste and save money. Combine that with a customer or employee incentive program giving their customers a Food Freshness Card, reduces returns and helps their customer reduce waste as well. Many supermarkets have a sustainability initiative consistent with our goal of reducing waste. According to the NRDC, an average US family throws away over $2,000 per year in food. With the incentive program, the supermarket benefits from happy customers, eating fresher food and truly enjoying fresher produce from their store which is a reflection of their quality.”

    NEW YORKApril 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Natures Natural Solutions has announced that the Food Freshness Card has won the Gold Medal in the 2019 Edison Awards in the Food Tech Solutions. The award is the latest in a long list of awards and accolades the product has won since its launch just a few years ago.

    Father and son team, Rick and RJ Hassler, developed and patented the Food Freshness Card. They joined hundreds of senior executives from some of the world's most recognized companies, including IBM, to acknowledge the hard work and commitment of all of the 2019 Edison Award winners at an April 4 event at The Capitale in New York City.

    "Global food waste totals $5 billion annually and accounts for eight percent of greenhouse gas emissions," said Rick Hassler. "The Food Freshness Card utilizes Tesla technology and is manufactured under three U.S. patents to help keep food fresher inside or outside of a refrigerator."

    Hassler added that in independent laboratory testing, the Food Freshness Card increased shelf life 40 percent for many fruits, vegetables and breads. From farm to fork, the Food Freshness Card naturally extends shelf life in storage, transportation, supermarkets, restaurants and the home.

    Being recognized with an Edison Award has become one of the highest accolades a company can receive in the name of innovation and business. The awards are named after Thomas Alva Edison(1847-1931) whose inventions, new product development methods and innovative achievements literally changed the world, garnered him 1,093 U.S. patents, and made him a household name around the world.

    "Once again, the winners created innovations that are revolutionizing industries and becoming indispensable," said Frank Bonafilia, Executive Director of the Edison Awards. "One of the game-changing winners, Food Freshness Card, was recognized as a true innovator out of the many products in its category, Food and Technology."
