The food industry suffers from a significant waste problem. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations suggests that one-third of the world's food was lost or wasted every year. The dairy industry is not an exception; premature milk spoilage during production leads to tremendous food waste and financial loss. Dairy companies source milk from different farms and mix it at the factory. The quality of incoming milk varies batch by batch and farm by farm. Unfortunately, it is not easy for dairy companies to sense minor spoilage. Mixing slightly spoiled milk batches with good batches leads to large-scale premature spoilage, causing financial loss and increasing the carbon footprint of dairy factories. This case study demonstrates how electronic noses detect spoilage, prevent loss, and lower the carbon footprint.
