Managers in the food service industry are always looking for new ways to increase customer satisfaction and brand loyalty. But, connecting great experiences with your brand takes planning, work, and time. How can managers devote more time to their team, customer and building their brands and less time planning for inspections and audits?
Getting high performance scores on regulation inspections and internal audits is important but should not require massive amounts of time logging and doing paperwork.
DeltaTrak will be exhibiting in Booth #1039 at the NGA Show 2019 in San Diego, Feb 25th-26th.
If you’re looking for peace-of-mind for your next product shipment, you might find one of DeltaTrak’s new FlashLink® In-Transit RTL Mini Loggers to be just the product for you. The compact RTL Mini Loggers include a built-in GSM chip to provide not only real-time temperature and humidity data but also the location during the trip.
Migrating to the new FlashTrak® Mini PDF In-Transit Logger has never been easier. Here are three reasons you should consider making the move:
Shadow Log: Even if you forget to start the logger, DeltaTrak has you covered. The Mini PDF Logger will still record data and deliver a report to guarantee your data and ensure traceability.
Produce picked from the field has a long road before arriving on the consumer’s plate. First, the harvested food immediately goes to a cooling facility located near the field. From the cooling facility, trucks take the commodity to a distribution center. Finally, the produce is transported to the grocery stores. For these trips, shippers typically use in-transit loggers to insure that the carrier did what was necessary to provide and deliver the commodities that the receiver purchased.
In the past, shippers of perishable products would arrange with carriers to deliver their shipment from Point A to Point B and hope for the best. There was little or no visibility into the temperature conditions in the back of the truck or where en route the truck actually was.
Fortunately, the FlashLink® BLE Data Logger changes all that. The “BLE” stands for Bluetooth Low Energy and has turned the product into a real-time temperature, humidity and location solution.
In the journeys from "Field to Fork," in-transit temperature loggers provide evidence that the commodity is fresh and that proper temperature has been maintained. The independent temperature logger ensures that the item being offered for sale will have the best possible quality and longest shelf life.
But what happens if the loader forgets to start the logger? Indeed, according to DeltaTrak hard data, approximately 8% of in-transit loggers are never actually started!
A couple of years ago, I took my kids to a fruit orchard in the Bay Area. The orchard had some blackberry bushes, so we picked a lot of berries that hot June day and then went on to also pick some apricots.
We placed the cardboard box with the berries on the back seat of the car and drove home--about an hour away. From that hour in the car which included the time it took the car to cool down, the berries had left bright purple-colored stains on the box. Clearly, the berries had suffered from the heat and would all have to be eaten quickly or be thrown away.
