Criniti's uses IoT to enhance food safety

Thursday, 31 May, 2018

Food safety is a top priority in the food industry, but Italian restaurant chain Criniti’s has taken steps to ensure it is upheld at its eight restaurants across Australia with the help of CCP.

The company uses a network of wireless sensors to monitor refrigeration temperature and automate record keeping for food safety compliance. According to CCP, it uses low-cost Internet of Things (IoT) technology to continuously monitor refrigerators, freezers and cool room temperatures. This is inevitably more accurate than manual checking.

Michael White, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer at CCP, said, “In the food industry, refrigeration systems are mission critical.” Failures can not only compromise food safety, but can also result in product loss, reduced revenue and operation disruptions.

Criniti’s Group Executive Chef John McFadden said it is “a great return on investment” and the technology should strengthen food safety and reduce business risk.

“With CCP’s wireless sensors installed, staff are now immediately alerted by email/SMS if refrigeration temperature tolerances are breached. This can make a huge difference to both the end result for customers but also to the bottom line when it comes to avoiding food spoilage,” White said.
