VIEWS + UP VOTES - DOWN VOTES + COMMENTS = HEAT INDEX
If it is about food, then it goes without saying that only hygienically immaculate goods are expected by the consumers. Undoubtedly, being the basic necessity of life good quality food stuffs is the highest priority for all consumers, food suppliers and manufactures. Be it vegetables, meat and sausages, poultry or dairy products- no one in the entire cold chain simply can afford bad quality because the customers would not accept damaged products.
Impediments to Safe & quality food throughout the supply chain
Right from farm to fork, there are many hindrances in supplying good quality food products - in Storage, transportation and other stages of supply chain. Firstly, the appearance of food items should be fresh and appetizing and not just that but the food also needs to be hygienically immaculate - More so with the perishable goods. For example, when the cold chain is interrupted and the foods are exposed to excessively high temperatures over a longer period. And secondly, because guidelines such as the HACCP concept must be strictly adhered to in order to eliminate risk factors.
This means that foods must be stored continuously at defined temperature limit values, typically at least -18 °C for deep-frozen goods and +4 °C to +8 °C in the refrigerated range. If refrigeration temperatures are not adhered to, leading to the sale of spoilt foods, there is a threat of considerable economic damage. All this often results due to failure or poor monitoring systems.
Conventional measurement data monitoring systems do automate monitoring. However, for this area of application they are often too complex, need time consuming installation, above all one person is always responsible for collecting the data and documenting them, by hand or electronically. Another setback surfaces due to the lack of warning and intimation features.
