FoodCheck by Kelsius, a cloud-based food safety monitoring system, to be introduced to the SuperValu and Centra store network.
Kelsius, the food safety monitoring technology firm headquartered in Donegal is to offer its revolutionary new FoodCheck technology to SuperValu and Centra stores.
Once adopted by retailers, this has the potential value of €2m over the next 12 months. The FoodCheck system replaces the current industry standard paper based manual monitoring and record keeping, helping to provide immediate operational savings to stores and allowing staff to spend more time in direct customer interaction.
Commenting on the contract, Eamonn Quinn, Executive Chairman of Kelsius said “Food safety is the most important issue for any company operating in food retail as the reputation of a brand can be irreparably damaged through just one major incident. Our cloud based technology enables food retailers replace existing onerous paper based check systems and save time and money whilst implementing the very best solution for food chain management. The recorded information is available immediately as it is needed and reduces the possibility of human error in the recording of data as well as providing precise data for management. We are delighted to partner with SuperValu and Centra, helping us become the retail industry standard for excellence in food safety monitoring.”
Ray Bowe, Head of Food Safety for SuperValu and Centra added, “Implementing rigorous food safety and quality controls is fundamental to SuperValu and Centra. This new to market Kelsius’ FoodCheck system ensures excellence in food safety monitoring and we are delighted to be able to offer this to our retail partners. This innovative system helps us continue to offer the highest standards of food safety and quality to our shoppers that they have come to expect.”
Kelsius’ FoodCheck technology replaces the current paper-based systems that require repetitive manual monitoring and record keeping. FoodCheck’s web based temperature monitoring and food safety compliance system automates these tasks. The system utilises systematic and preventative regimes meaning that the industry standard HACCP processes are fully followed and that nothing is left to chance in the hugely important area of food safety.
All data is stored electronically. Alerts of non-conformance are generated automatically by the system and sent as text messages to supervisors/ managers. Ultimately, this results in a more efficient and cost-effective process allowing staff to spend more time on customer service in customer facing roles as opposed to ‘behind the scenes’ in convenience stores, restaurants, hotels, fast-food outlets or catering companies. Kelsius’ FoodCheck system is the only system of its kind currently available in the market.
