Food safety protocols are very important for 5-star hotel chains and their restaurant businesses. For Sheraton, Hyatt, Intercontinental, and Acore, the quality of food is very important to their guests, and there are a lot of internal rules that need to be obeyed to fulfill that promise. Controlling food storage temperature is one of the most important ones, and using sensors makes for a more efficient, flexible, and economically sound process.

The purpose of cold room storage monitoring is to ensure that the cold room is being used and maintained in a way that preserves the quality and safety of the food or other products being stored. Proper cold room storage monitoring can help to prevent food spoilage and waste, as well as reduce the risk of foodborne illness.

Challenges

  • Cold rooms usually contain expensive seafood worth several 100K $
  • High costs of manpower
  • Risk of serving unhealthy food, damaging the brand image
  • The metal surrounding cold rooms can cause sensor signal problems

 

Cold rooms, with their metal encasing, can cause sensor signal problems.

 

Solution

300 Senstick MicroClimate sensors were shipped to Australia and Singapore, where MFC Safe integrator managed their deployment inside the cold rooms of the largest hotel chains like Sheraton, Intercontinental, and Hyatt. Senstick had no problems with the signal coming from the isolated cold rooms. The sensors replaced manned temperature monitoring performed by kitchen personnel, thus saving 30% on labor costs. The expected ROI for the sensors is going to come around in just 14 months.

 

Benefits

  • Improved food safety & quality, less waste
  • Increased efficiency by 70%, higher profitability
  • Reducing manpower by 30%
  • 14-month ROI
