Following the development of consumer habits and preferences is an ongoing challenge for grocery stores and supermarkets. Consumers no longer go to stores with shopping lists that guide what they put in their carts – and no longer focus solely on buying traditional food.
As a result, most retail food locations adjust their products to meet consumer demand and increasing competition. As lifestyle and has changed, shops have experienced exponential growth in the field of fast food for takeout and ready-to-eat food cooked in the store. In working to stay competitive and meet that demand, supermarkets and grocery stores find themselves playing in the same fields as restaurants, convenience stores, gourmet specialty stores, and even department stores.
A stronger focus on Food Safety
By providing this new food offering, shop operators are now faced with the same legal requirements and procedures for food safety followed by restaurants and other food supply companies. As a result, successful operators adopt smart strategies to maintain food safety and invest in new technologies designed to improve efficiency and improve practices.
One important step towards meeting these health and safety standards is a focus on temperature monitoring, both in the refrigeration unit and in the inspection of ready meals. In the past, monitoring food temperatures was very tiring and sometimes ineffective because staff members manually checked and recorded temperatures in handwritten logs. New technology, however, is revolutionizing the process and helping many operators avoid problems with health monitors.
One such system is the DayMark Food Temperature Monitoring and Inspection Solution. Offered by DayMark Safety Systems in partnership with JRI – designer and manufacturer of measurement, control and monitoring solutions – HACCP compliant systems provide food safety management, temperature monitoring and compliance through intuitive and comprehensive web applications, both wireless and through connections default.
The main advantages include automatic alerts sent via text or email when the system detects critical temperature changes that can affect food safety and quality, and the ability for operators to carry out automatic temperature and food checks from remote locations as often as needed. The system eliminates the need for staff to check temperatures manually and constitutes accurate and reliable way to ensure all food is stored and cooked properly.
In the clouds
Systems that utilize cloud-based technology provide consistent and accurate data, information that becomes very important when the health inspector arrives. The DayMark solution, for example, sends information to the cloud where it is managed on the dashboard, eliminating worries about errors or the possibility of someone faking information.
Utilizing technology and adopting smart food safety strategies allows operators more time to focus on changing customer demand. By investing in automatic temperature monitoring systems, such as DayMark Temp Monitoring Solution, they can be more worried and make smarter business decisions that benefit their customers.
