Iot is a system of interconnected devices which are able to transfer data to and fro without the human-to-human interaction but over through other devices. IoT is now used for various purposes ranging from smart homes for controlling smart devices within the home, smart cities in which all the network devices operate synchronously, autonomous vehicles which is still a work in progress. With the advent of 5g comes the improvement in transmission rate, the number of devices available in square kilometer and the elimination of congestion. The topic in discussion is reducing the food wastage in Australia by leveraging IoT. A large number of techniques are used to accomplish the said task such as qualitative analysis, inductive design and production data. The challenge is to maintain the freshness of the food by detecting the decay early on and warning the supplier when the food must be replaced thereby decreasing the wastage of food. The IoT devices requires to monitor the food, detect and alert the supplier when the food must be replaced. In this way the quality of the food can be supervised and reduce the wastage of the food.
