Food service operators with IoT systems are now monitoring, in real time, temperatures on all perishable items, cases, freezers, transportation vehicles and other areas prone to spoilage and waste.
The sensors send alerts instantly if temperatures rise or fall outside a pre-set range.
Reducing or eliminating spoilage not only cuts costs but also boosts sales of products that would otherwise have had to be thrown away.
The benefits of IoT systems extend well beyond reducing shrink. The displays highlight specialty categories such as vegetarian or vegan, provide detailed ingredient listings, and flag any meal containing potential allergens.
