„Vorkoster“ is a lid that makes the expiry of food visible. In its centre is a pH-sensitive foil that reacts to the spoilage of protein-containing foods with a change of colour. This creates an object that reminds us in an unobtrusive and analogue way to consume food before it is too late. The „Vorkoster“ is intended to offer an alternative to the standardised expiry date and to provide assistance for an unpackaged future.
