Refrigerator & Freezer Monitoring for Compliance and Food Safety
Restaurants have a responsibility to monitor & maintain the environmental conditions in fridges, freezers, walk-ins, pantries, and other storage areas. Temperature and humidity excursions pose significant risks to many food products within a restaurant, and those risks may include spoilage, moisture/bacterial buildup, and others that compromise the safety of restaurant patrons.
State and federal agencies including the FDA, USDA, and others perform compliance audits of food service companies companies to ensure quality control during production, transportation, and storage. Enforced regulations may include the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), and Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). Regulations often require around-the-clock monitoring at a 15 minute interval, with readings performed by NIST/ISO calibrated sensors. Food services organizations can improve operational efficiency and quality control with timely access to environmental logs, integrated reports, and actionable alerts.;
