"We at Applegreen are delighted to be using Kelsius FoodCheck paperless HACCP system across our growing Applegreen network. We pride ourselves on our customer service and innovative food options whether in our small local stations or in our larger Motorway Service Areas. It’s important that our staff spend as much time as possible in customer facing roles and the FoodCheck technology ensures that the hugely important area of food safety management is managed with meticulous attention to detail but without the onerous hours of paper reporting and filing. As an independent Irish company we were delighted to be supporting another growing Irish company who came up with the perfect solution for Applegreen."Joe Barrett, Chief Operations Officer
"The Kelsius HACCP Management system has eliminated a vast amount of paperwork which was replaced by tablets and wireless probes and has removed the risk of human error in relation to temperature and traceability management.
The system provides us with prompts and alerts to pending tasks, so now nothing gets forgotten."Kate O' Driscoll, Quish's SuperValu Ballincollig
“In November 2015 we installed Kelsius FoodCheck system in our Deli Department. Before installation our staff had over 15 sign off sheets, from Cleaning Sheets to Traceability. This has reduced the vast amount of paperwork which has been replaced by the tablet.
The Kelsius FoodCheck has removed the risk of human error in relation to temperature and traceability management.
The tablet encourages staff to use the system, as it is so easy to input records, saving time and money."Noelle Keenan, SuperValu Flemmings, Monaghan
SuperValu Cunningham's Castleconnell and Ratoath
"Introducing the Kelsius FoodCheck system into our two stores has proven to be an investment which has resulted in cost savings for our business. It has enabled us to maintain EIQA and EHO approved records while removing costs and labour from our systems. The system is easy to use and encourages our staff to keep records up to date daily without the necessity of large paper files on hand.
The alert system on fridges and freezers is a critical tool as it enables us to take pre-emptive action where necessary and reduce any potential stock loss issues."Peter Cunningham, Cunningham's SuperValu, Castleconnell Limerick and Ratoath Meath.
Centra Blackcastle, Meath.
"FoodCheck has given us an actual cost saving when compared to manual records. The cost of the entire FoodCheck system is much less than the cost of manually checking each fridge and freezer twice a day in labour alone. That doesn’t even take into account the added benefits of prompts to remind staff of important tasks, greatly reducing paperwork and giving my staff more time to serve our customers.’’
“FoodCheck cuts out around 30-35 hours per week in labour for us.”Sean McGuirke, Centra Blackcastle, Meath
Centra Carnmore, Galway.
“We have FoodCheck for a few years now. The greatest benefit by far that I have found is that it frees up between 15-20 hours a week for my staff. Roughly 10 hours for my floor staff and 7 for my deli. This equates to a saving of €120 per week. This also means my staff are free to clean and stock and serve my customers. It is like having an extra member of staff for each half day. The system has served me very well and my health inspector is very happy with it. I get text Alerts if there is an issue with my fridges and freezers so I can protect against stock loss- it is like an extra insurance. FoodCheck’s bottom line is that if offers me peace of mind as well as saves me money."Liam Glynn, Centra Carnmore, Galway
Centra Ratoath, Meath
“FoodCheck has greatly reduced the amount of time and money we have to allocate to HACCP and Food Safety Management. When we first installed the system we removed all our paper records which we condensed in an ease to use tablet. This allowed my staff more time to concentrate on the quality service and food I provide my customers. This is very important to me. It also allowed me greater scope to manage my staff as I am able to check on my records even when I am away from the shop. The Alert system means I have the comfort of being notified should a fridge or freezer go down. The system is vital to everyday operation."Paul Sweeney, Centra Ratoath, Meath
Centra Rochestown, Cork
“We have Kelsius Food Safety System installed in the store now for a number of years, and to be quite honest, I couldn’t imagine the food safety system working without it.
I myself am very involved in the daily managing of the whole Kelsius System and would monitor records all day, so errors with staff especially new, are dealt with immediately. All records are signed off by managers, and this gives us huge reassurement that everything is running correctly. There were occasions when the system would have saved us a lot of money, as fridges and freezers alarm as soon as they need attention, hence problem dealt with immediately, and stock can be moved to another location.
With full commitment from Managers and staff in place you will never look back, and paperwork will be a thing of the past.
I would have no hesitation in highly recommending Kelsius to Retailers.”"Mary McGroarty, Centra Rochestown
Centra Glenshane, Derry
"I have had FoodCheck in my shop for over 5 years now. It has greatly reduced the amount of time and money we spend on HACCP. We could not imagine being without the system."Paul Dorrity, Centra Glenshane, Derry

Kelsius came and completed a site survey and explained how FoodCheck could be adapted to our exact requirements. This gave us great confidence we were making the correct decision. HACCP has become much more manageable and less time consuming.
We get daily reports and weekly audits which ensures we are always on top of our HACCP requirements. All units are monitored 24/7 and chefs have more time to concentrate on what they are best at – cooking.
