"addressing food waste in a new and innovative way"

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:
"Call it a shopper’s dilemma.

A supermarket bin is down to its last banana or head of lettuce, and the food looks a little tired. There’s a slight bruise, or the color isn’t quite right, and you can’t decide if it’s worth the risk to shell out money for something that could turn out to be a dud.

Harsha Prakki, 19, of Franklin, might be on her way to developing a product that could solve such a problem, and could even put $1 million in her bank account if she wins an upcoming international competition.

Prakki’s invention, which is still in the design stage, is a “sticker” placed on fruits and vegetables to indicate their freshness level. She said many consumers throw away food by the manufacturer’s listed sell-by dates, believing it’s no longer fresh. However, many foods can still be eaten safely, and her sticker is designed to guarantee how long food remains fresh enough to eat."

if the sticker is in any shade of blue, then the item is still within its freshness period, and good to eat
