RipeTime Sensor Technology

Cost-effective ethylene detection allowing you to accurately forecast ripeness of produce, receive real-time alerts and automate ethylene cleaners & other ag-tech systems.

Ripetime Reduces Food Wastage By Detecting Ethylene Levels in Real Time of Your Produce

What's at stake?

Agribusiness is one of the largest industries in the world, valued at approximately $US 1.4 trillion a year. While this figure is astounding, there is an ever-expanding percentage of food wastage year-in-year-out.

The main contributor to food waste is fruits and vegetables with a staggering 45% of all post-harvest produce being lost or wasted within the food supply chain. This is roughly 1.3 billion tonnes of food, which equates to $US 680 billion dollars worth of wasted produce not reaching an end consumer each year.

To combat this industry problem, RipeTime have created the most accurate real-time ripening sensor in the world, to help monitor the health of fresh produce shipments across the entire supply chain.

How it works

As the world struggles with overwhelming food wastage, RipeTime has developed a patented technology to help proactively deal with the problem, in the form of an atmosphere reader.

8 Highly sensitive detection

RipeTime technology cost-effectively detects extremely low levels of gas in the atmosphere, as a way of tracking fresh produce quality as it is moved through the supply chain.

7 Immediate data collection

RipeTime's device collects atmospheric data on a regular 15-minute cycle, providing highly accurate predictions of ripening timelines; without even handling the product.

9 Real-time notifications

RipeTime's software has the ability to collect any and all data from the Environmental Sensor's reads and then forward that data on to subscribers in the form of real-time notifications.

Benefits of using RipeTime

RipeTime's real-time sensor detects ethylene levels down to 1 Part Per Billion (1PPB), allowing cool store operators to:

Real Time Ethylene Level Detection of Produce By RipeTime Sensor Technology

Accurately forecast

Atmospheric readings that measure down to 1PPB allow for accurate forecasting across all forms of fresh produce. This ensures that you can optimise your supplies, sending them out on time, every-time.


Most accurate ripeness/ethylene detection system in the world (GC certified)


Measurements down to 1PPB to give long-term warnings


Real-time alerts of atmosphere changes within 5PPB

 RipeTime's Environmental Sensor Provides Warnings in Real-Time to Minimize Food Wastage Resulting From Over Ripening

Real-time warnings

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and overripened produce take less than 2 hours to have irreversible effects on the surrounding batch. RipeTime's Environmental Sensor now provides cool room operators with an informed window of opportunity to act upon before they begin to experience large losses in product.


24/7 measuring - taking readings every 15 mins (672 per week)


Alerts and Notifications can be sent via SMS, Email or Desktop


Actionable data and suggested responses provided
