Case Study

Pacific Coast Producers:

NIR spectroscopy + Machine learning + Engineering
Tomato Sauce Analysis

The Problem

Pacific Coast Producers relies on different types of tedious lab based chemical testing methodologies to manage their quality control operations. As production increases, this becomes even more problematic because of the delay caused by the current testing methods created new logistics and storage challenges.

Our Solution

Our team took a user centric approach by collecting over 200 samples during different production times to develop custom NIR technology for rapid assessment of salt concentration in tomato sauce. The merger of powerful & portable NIR spectroscopy equipment with a simple but intuitive user interface cut sample testing time down from 3.5 hours to 30 seconds.
