Delicious meals served during travel greatly enhance the customer experience, but this industry faces unique food safety challenges. Limited space means that food storage and food preparation occur in close proximity. Transportation constraints see the storage and processing of raw ingredients in the same space that staff are reheating food.
These challenges amplify foodborne illness risk, increasing the difficulty of ensuring food safety and quality under already-strict HACCP compliance regulations. Wireless temperature monitoring solutions from ComplianceMate help cruise line, aircraft, and train catering services ensure safe handling.
Manual food temperature and humidity recordings are typical in food service operations aboard cruise ships, but they cannot provide constant monitoring, nor alert food handlers to equipment malfunction.
ComplianceMate’s wireless digital food temperature sensors log and transmit information about varying temperatures that can indicate refrigeration failure and potential food contamination during food transport and storage.
The food safety management systems used by train catering services must allow for safe food handling and limited bacterial multiplication and allow staff to adhere to hazard analysis and critical control point requirements.
Wireless data monitoring solutions from ComplianceMate eliminate the human error that often accompanies manual temperature data logging. It can be used to monitor non-potable water temperatures as well as raw and refrigerated items in food storage, minimizing food waste.
Meal temperature before and during food preparation is automatically recorded by our data logger and sent to the cloud for easy access and accurate timestamps whenever they’re required by food safety operators or auditors.
Airline food has a long journey from the commercial kitchen to airline passengers. The preparation and blast-chilling of airline meals occurs between 12 and 72 hours prior to serving, making reheating food the standard for airline catering operations.
The maintenance of safe temperatures of food and beverages must be assured to avoid cross-contamination during meal preparation and during the reheating practice to eliminate any harmful bacteria that may be present.
Food storage temperatures must remain within safe ranges and ambient temperatures maintained for meals waiting to be served by in-flight catering crew. The safety of food processed in the airport lounge is just as much a priority for airlines as that served by in-flight hospitality staff.
ComplianceMate’s digital checklists make ensuring food safety on the ground and in the air effortless. Our powerful wireless temperature sensors, data loggers, and cloud storage make monitoring and accessing food temperatures on entire fleets of aircraft possible.
Monitoring temperatures digitally allows train, ship, and air travel companies to drastically reduce harmful bacteria and food poisoning risks that increase liability and operating losses.
