Soon you’ll see a post-it like label stuck on all the food items that you buy. Known as Timestrips these are clocks that will help you tell the shelf life of the perishable food item from the day you open it’s packing. It will indicate the moment the food is not worth eating via a tinted liquid-filled indicator that moves across a range of time. It works with a capillary action that automatically marks the elapsed time.
Nestle has taken the initiative and is all set to use the Timestrip on magi ready to use sauces. This is going to be an intelligent concept that’s quite economical apart from being really useful as will do away with the hassles of keeping a track of the expiry date of each and every product that one buys.
