Food waste is one the greatest challenges of our time, and fruit and vegetables are particularly problematic, with an estimated 52 percent of harvests going bad before reaching consumers.

However, a Malaysian company, StixFresh, claims to have come up with a simple and effective solution to this problem – a tiny sticker that keeps fruits from spoiling for up to two weeks.

StixFresh stickers contain a special, all-natural formula that slows down the ripening process, keeping the fruit fresh and juicy for a longer time.

They are made with 100 percent organic materials and contain a mixture of ionized sodium chloride and beeswax, which helps slow down the bacterial activity in fruit, thus delaying the ripening process.
