Why Restaurant Owners Must Invest in Food Safety Technology

Food and Beverages | Saturday, October 30, 2021

Technology is an excellent tool for assisting restaurants in ensuring their food safety practices are satisfactory.

FREMONT, CA: The pandemic heightens public awareness of hygiene and food safety, and people have been more critical of the food sector in recent months. As a result, restaurants must take every precaution to assure the safety of the food they serve. Below are some reasons restaurant owners should begin applying it now.

Increase Consumer Sensitization: Customers are becoming more conscious of the critical nature of food safety. As a result, the list of steps essential to assure food safety will be larger and, at times, more challenging to track. However, technological automation provides a solution. By providing expiration dates and supporting optimal food rotation, technology automation can help to promote food safety. Additionally, it is beneficial to enhance the consumer experience by offering information on the ingredients utilized on the menu.

Maintain Compliance with Health Protocols: Hand washing is one of the critical protocols to be followed in the food sector. As a result, restaurants must ensure that all personnel regularly and thoroughly wash their hands. Despite this, maintaining track of this activity might be challenging. The most advanced hand scanning equipment is quite helpful for detecting viruses and germs, and additionally, it can alert personnel when it is time to wash their hands.

Temperature Monitoring: Restaurants must monitor the temperature of their kitchen refrigerators constantly. On average, this appliance fails at least twice a year. Since restaurants' refrigerators typically hold more than $10,000 in food, refrigerator failure can result in severe food waste and financial loss. Technology is advantageous for temperature monitoring to avoid food waste and financial loss due to refrigerator malfunction. Managers will be notified when their refrigerator is out of order via an automatic temperature monitoring system.

Keep Track of Daily Tasks: Every successful restaurant management team maintains a daily task checklist to keep track of critical duties. A checklist provides a quick summary of tasks that need to be accomplished and whether they have been completed, and it acts as a manual for staff. While paper and pen checklists are ubiquitous, they can be unreliable due to their potential for inaccuracy and make tracking employee productivity more difficult. Managers are critical to the success of any kitchen, and they justify the fulfillment of everyday duties and act as a road map for employees' expectations.
