C2 Sense has a vision for the future of connected devices. Using C2’s patented digital olfactory sensor, Loft helped design the first in a series of connected devices. Over time C2 hopes to expand their technology to cover a wide range of applications and chose to start with a device that focuses on farm-to-table food freshness.

C2 Sense works its magic at every stage of the supply chain. The custom sensor that C2 built monitors volatiles directly related meat, poultry, and fish freshness, as well as fruit ripeness.

The C2 sensing platform uses uses a gas-sensing device to improve food quality and diminish food waste by allowing customers to access real-time, remote feedback through a subscription-based service.
