Kelsius, a company that specialises in food safety compliance, has developed a new wireless HACCP system that revolutionises the control and monitoring of food safety standards for food service organisations. The product, called FoodCheck, will be launched at Hotelympia, commencing 26th February 2012.

Food safety is a key management issue and FoodCheck offers real-time visibility of compliance and non-conformances across a chain of organisations; be they convenience stores, restaurants, hotels, fast-food outlets or catering companies. It is the only system of its kind in the market today.

Unlike paper-based systems, which require repetitive monitoring and are dependent on staff diligence, FoodCheck is web based and tasks such as temperature monitoring are completely automated. Because the system utilises systematic and preventative regimes it means that HACCP processes are fully followed. All data is stored electronically and alerts of non-conformances provide peace of mind, so that issues are flagged and can be actioned immediately. Ultimately this results in a more efficient and cost-effective process with significant cost and labour savings.

Paddy Hearty, sales director at Kelsius commented, “Kelsius has already been working with a number of leading food service providers, such as Spar and the Clarion Hotel Group, and there are a number of FoodCheck trials underway in France at a large supermarket chain. So far the response has been overwhelmingly positive.

“We will be launching the product at Hotelympia, where food service organisations will be able to see demonstrations and understand in more detail the manifold advantages of the FoodCheck system.”
Patrick Baptist, director of food and beverage at Clarion Hotel Group; the largest Irish hotel chain, has been working with Kelsius since 2006 and said; “The Kelsius system has worked brilliantly for us in all our hotels. The individual food and beverage management teams are now working more closely with the chefs on HACCP processes.”

The three core modules which are combined within the FoodCheck system are:
Delivery – for checking safe food temperatures at goods inwards
Cook and cool – for food temperature monitoring in storage and during food service
Task management – for control management of staff hygiene-related tasks

Reporting is also made simple with FoodCheck as the system is completely paperless, with all data being stored in the Cloud. As such it is accessible at any time and any place, and is also scaleable which is essential for multiple operators. FoodCheck users are prepared for HACCP audits with information at their fingertips and the secure and tamper-proof system gives peace of mind to managers throughout the organisation.
