Temperature monitoring techniques and traceability systems along the cold chain

The aim of this deliverable is the systematic review of tools and methods used to monitor temperature conditions and assure traceability. Conventional and novel approaches are explored including temperature logging, transmission systems like Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Technology, intelligent packaging, Time-temperature indicators (TTIs) and Radio Frequency- Time-temperature indicators (RF-TTIs). These techniques in practice have contributed to improve the management of the cold chain with regard to product quality and safety, energy consumption and environmental impact is assessed.
