Tellspec is a big data company that offers real-time, affordable, reliable, non-destructive, portable food analysis. We provide predictive intelligence about food, by combining spectral sensors, bio-informatics techniques and machine learning algorithms, in a revolutionary technology that analyzes foods, in real-time and at the molecular level. We test food for quality, freshness, authenticity and adulteration. More recently we started to integrate blockchain technology to track food history and origin.


We are open to collaboration with any project related to improving the efficiency of food analysis along the food supply chain. We provide two different types of handheld food scanners that are fully portable and can give results in less than 5 seconds. We currently have food producers, distributors, retailers, and restaurants using our technology for a variety of applications including fresh fruit quality control, adulteration of flour with urea, melamine and feather protein, and optimization of the harvest time. Our Fish CQ and Fraud application has won third place in the 2018 EIT Innovation awards, and our CEO won first place in the 2018 EIT Woken award.
