Management of food service company
Large public or private catering companies have several locations. Each kitchen is responsible for HACCP monitoring and reducing food waste. However, the centralized management of HACCP is the most efficient way for the company to operate and improve productivity.
Harmonization achieves synergies and kitchens learn from each other’s good practices. SmartKitchen Digital Management is a tool to harmonize and lead self-monitoring and reduction of food waste in large food service companies. Smart Kitchen is the right solution when you want to lead with knowledge.
Harmonization and management of HACCP
Typically, a company’s HACCP monitoring guidelines apply to all kitchens and include certain daily, weekly, or monthly inspections. With the SmartKitchen solution, common checklists can be defined and maintained centrally. It saves a lot of effort when these checklists do not have to be done in each kitchen individually. This will also speed up the implementation of changes and additions.
For example, Covid-19 warranted an increase in regular disinfection. Disinfection instructions and implementation monitoring can be carried out in a company of hundreds of kitchens in one hour.
Harmonizations of food waste monitoring and reduction
Centrally managed waste monitoring activities are also effective and make reporting consistent. Maintaining basic data on food waste items does not take time at the kitchens when it is managed centrally. The company’s CFO sees in euros how much money is spent on food waste at each kitchen. In the same way, the environmental manager sees the carbon footprint.
When a kitchen develops a positive development for reducing a particular food waste, it is possible to disseminate good practices to other kitchens.
SmartKitchen solution provides management view to monitor that daily HACCP actions are performed and waste monitoring goes as planned. The digital approach makes the monitoring easier and ensures that needed practises are followed without interruptions. Because monitoring is real-time, you do not have to wait for the end of a day or week, or even be present, to get a report.
When need arises to have a review and go to details the management account holder can see every needed detail from each kitchen if the company has multiple locations. Audition can be done from a computer screen and it’s even possible to give a temporary access to reports to health inspector if needed.
Easy to deploy
Use of the service requires that every kitchen is using the SmartKitchen solution. The Quality Manager (or equivalent) opens own user account and activates a “Digital Management” license for it. Next, the quality manager lists the locations he wants to monitor and manage. The management functions described above are then available.
