Over the last decade, restaurant and retail food safety has taken a huge leap forward, largely due to the adoption of food safety systems incorporating wireless technology, advanced sensors and data analytics. Top quick-serve restaurant brands with their large networks of stores have led the charge in adopting these systems. As a result, they’ve streamlined operations, increased food safety and achieved uniform standards across all locations.
Leveraging cloud-based technology, these food safety systems combine Bluetooth temperature probes and equipment specific sensors to perform fast and accurate temperature screenings (for both food and equipment). These sensors integrate directly into digital checklists with a management view that provides insights across teams, as well as necessary visibility for employees who use the product daily.
The food safety industry continues to innovate and adopt new technologies. Forward-looking brands are developing new ways to incorporate these technologies into their operations and ultimately rise above competition. Let’s take a look at some of the technology innovations that will drive food safety systems in the year to come.
