Dutch startup Orbisk brought its artificial intelligence-powered, automated food waste monitor Orbi to CES 2022.
The system is aimed at hotels and restaurants, promising to reduce food waste by up to 70 percent, according to Orbisk.
Users hold food in front of the LED light on the Orbi monitor. Orbi takes a picture of the waste and sends the data to a personalized dashboard for users to quantify what food is wasted, how much and when in the day. Users then toss the food into the waste bin on the Orbi.
The company has raised about 3.9 million euros (about $4.4 million) in seed funding and grants, according to Crunchbase. It was founded in 2019.
