Monitoring Chilled, Frozen and Dry Food Storage

Top

According to the Food Standards Agency, refrigerators should be kept between 0⁰C and 5⁰C to avoid the growth of dangerous bacteria that can lead to food poisoning. The agency recommends measuring and monitoring this using a thermometer as “the dials on fridges don’t always show you the right temperature”. HACCP guidelines state that it is essential to keep and maintain records of adherence of such guidelines, as well as any breaches to ensure food standards are met.

Guaranteeing these standards manually can take a lot of time and resources, especially within the service industry or a large storage facility housing a range of products. Data loggers can relieve you of these pressures by continually taking measurements at a preselected schedule and automatically alerting you of any breaches, eliminating the chance of missing a crucial check or deviation during busy periods.

In monitoring the storage of food, we suggest using a device that operates through a WiFi connection so it can wirelessly monitor and store your data continuously through the EasyLog Cloud. This means that any alerts can reach you or your staff via email and that you can view your data remotely whenever and wherever you are. Multiple loggers set up across a number of locations can be used and tracked using the same EasyLog account, streamlining your storage management no matter what size your business. The EasyLog Cloud securely stores data to be accessed anywhere in the world from a computer, smartphone or tablet, and can display real-time and historical data with graphical display options.
