Six main product categories have been considered: fruits, ready to eat meal, meat, fish, vegetable and milk products

Build the cold chain

Select every step, personalize them or just start with the reference chain for a first simulation

Simulate

Evaluate the evolution of quality, the energy consumption, compare your custom chain with the reference chain

Frisbee Tool

Frisbee tool is a software for optimizing food quality, energy use and environmental impact of cold chain. The user selects a specific food product and defines a cold chain. The user can choose default settings or can define the settings of a specific cold chain to the lowest level of detail.

The software contains validated kinetic models that can predict how the quality and safety evolve along the cold chain as a function of temperature and duration.

About

The Frisbee tool has been developed in the frame of the EU-FP7-project FRISBEE (Food Refrigeration Innovations for Safety, consumers'Benefit, Environmental impact and Energy optimisation along the cold chain in Europe).

This software tool has been produced with the financial support of the European Union (grant agreement FP7/2007-2013 - Frisbee).

The results expressed by the use of this tool do by no means reflect the official opinion of the European Union or its representatives.
