The invention discloses a grocery management system. The grocery management system resolves an identity of food products in a refrigerator. The system further determines a status, e.g., expiration dates, weights, freshness, quantity, or any other measure, of the food products shelved in the refrigerator. The system compares the status of the food products with one or more predetermined criterias, e.g., whether the food product is within a threshold number of days of its expiry date, whether the food product is below a threshold quantity, e.g., by weight, volume, count, etc. Accordingly, the system provides customized notifications to a user of the refrigerator.
