Food safety has become a primary issue for the entire food-industry; from manufacturers to retailers, from small restaurants to global fast-food chains. Ever-more stringent Cold Chain Management legislation and increasing demands from customers make constant monitoring and full traceability essential.

    • The Cold Chain starts at the suppliers of food stuff. Meat processors, industrial bakeries as well as fresh vegetable suppliers have to manage and monitor the temperatures. Temperature violations in this initial processing phase will dramatically decrease the future product shelf life.

    • Refrigerated transport. Another critical phase is the refrigerated transport to the distribution centre. At this point, the Cold chain management is the individual responsibility of the transporter and the truck driver. Remote temperature monitoring helps managers to ensure that the legislation is followed.

    • High volumes of diverse products. The Distribution Center or DC typically stores high volumes of diverse products, both refrigerated and frozen. Monitoring the cold chain for this vast and valuable quantity is imperative.

    • Outbound delivery. Outbound delivery to the retail shops and restaurants is another step in the cold chain to be managed

    • High volume storage. Finally, storage at the retail shop or restaurant often takes place in cold stores of diverse type and build. So a remote temperature alarm offers a unique tool to monitor and measure the Cold Chain before human consumption.
