A new mobile app has been launched that is designed to bring automation into commercial kitchens and better manage hygiene and food safety management.
KitchenLogs has unveiled a fully-automated, intelligent food hygiene system, designed to streamline the processes associated with adhering to Food Standards Agency (FSA) standards.
The food technology company was created to save businesses time and money by using technology that helps kitchens to digitally automate and manage many of the labour-intensive processes that come with ensuring food production and food storage safety checks, are regularly undertaken and recorded.
The organisation claims the technology also simplifies the procedures through notifications and alerts that provide reminders for the kitchen team and enables the kitchen to manage data digitally, eliminating the need for inefficient paper reporting, freeing up storage space.
Jim McGuire, co-founder of KitchenLogs, said: “The eureka moment came when I was helping out a friend with a street food start-up during a festival. Another food trader got into serious trouble, simply due to a lack of paperwork evidencing her food safety processes. Like her, most food businesses are still using pen and paper to manually log and store records which seemed crazy to me, in a world where technology is automating and streamlining simple processes across industries.
“The flurry of negative press relating to kitchen hygiene and food management, indicates that food safety requirements are only likely to increase – leading to greater administrative workloads for kitchens. KitchenLogs is a full-service solution that helps to ensure checks are carried out regularly, using clever automation to alleviate some of the inefficient and time-eating processes that are taking kitchen teams away from the business of producing top quality food.”
