Barcodiscount is a barcode label system that displays discount levels in different colors as the expiration date of the food approaches. The barcode changes automatically so that it is registered at the checkout as a discounted product. This innovation saves time and effort by eliminating the need for manual application of discount stickers. In addition, inventory management is also optimized, as store personnel can scan the discounted prices at the checkout.

Barcodiscount is an interesting proposal with great application potential. It solves two key problems of food retail; it reduces waste by encouraging consumers to buy products that will soon perish, and streamlines logistics and data management. Well done!
Jury Statement
