You can’t risk selling spoiled food. For many products, consistent refrigeration is required to maintain freshness. Fresh fruits and vegetables are particularly sensitive to spoilage and must be monitored carefully. One undetected refrigerator malfunction can result in $30,000 in lost stock. Cold storage monitoring helps you avoid sick customers, insurance claims, lawsuits and damage to your reputation.
To comply with regulatory requirements, such as Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP), food retailers must monitor and document temperature for food at least three times each day. Sensors applied to refrigeration and freezer units let grocery stores remotely monitor temperatures and confirm equipment is working. If sensors detect unexpected changes, they can alert site managers and service technicians to address problems immediately. Staff can quickly relocate perishable food, ensuring it is safe for sale. Sensors free up time for employees, allowing them to focus on other work functions that improve the customer experience.
