From the Production Line to the Customers' Plate
HACCP guidelines state that it is essential to keep and maintain robust temperature records, as well as record any breaches, to ensure food safety standards are met.
Ensuring goods are kept in optimum conditions is important for any organisation working within the Food & Drinks industry, not only to comply with HACCP and Food Safety guidelines, but also potentially boost productivity by preventing waste, maintaining overall quality in finished goods, and saving time and money.
With our range of Data Loggers & Sensors you can effortlessly record temperature and humidity data, as well as be alerted when levels become too high or too low.
Many processes within the food processing sector take place in tightly controlled environments to ensure a consistent, high-quality, and safe end-product. If correct temperatures or humidity levels are not maintained, the flavour of the product may be altered, or worse, it may not be safe for consumption due to harmful bacteria not being killed.
Whilst most machines in processing plants are equipped with thermostats, and manual temperature checks do occur, things can often go wrong. Not only can thermostats become unreliable or fail in an emergency, manual temperature checks can be time-consuming and prone to human error.
Whether you're a large multi-site food processer, a small independent retailer, or anyone in-between, our wireless environmental monitoring solutions are fully-scalable. With our EasyLog Cloud-connected loggers, you can access temperature data from multiple locations, across multiple sites, all in one place.
In the beverage industry, temperature plays a vital role in deciding the quality of the final product. During the wine making or brewing process, the ambient temperature, as well as fermentation temperature, could have a positive or negative effect. Even in the process of milk pasteurization, the temperature is important to ensure the removal of harmful pathogens, such as Escherichia, Salmonella, and Listeria.
The application of HACCP principles to the industrial production of beer means that it is important to create records of the steps taken for careful temperature and humidity control in order to ensure the safety of the drink’s production. This means that it is not only essential to control temperature in the process, but record the relevant data, including any excursions from ideal environmental conditions.
In order to pass an industry inspection, this data should be recorded daily by properly trained staff or automated systems.
