Innovation is driving value and improving efficiency across many aspects of the retail and hospitality sectors. From payment and booking systems, to supplier management and building compliance, it seems there are digital solutions for every aspect of the business – and one area that operators simply cannot afford to ignore is food safety.
When it comes to maintaining food safety standards, technology is facilitating greater accuracy and visibility, with reduced costs and improved productivity. Not only can it help to reduce risk and increase compliance relating to food safety, but the latest innovations with smart technologies can also enable operators to continuously improve food safety and quality, closely monitor individual site performance and even deliver training and support where needed.
This digital shift is the focus of our latest white paper, ‘Protecting your brand and growing your profitability, the new realities of foods safety operations’, designed to help organisations better understand the challenges and identify solutions to enable successful food operations.
Managing food safety and operations effectively and cost-efficiently has traditionally been a challenge for retailers and restaurant chains. There are a long list of daily checks required to ensure the quality and safety of food products for sale, often across multiple sites, with huge reputational and financial risks if things aren’t done correctly – not to mention the safety of customers.
However, the introduction of digital platforms is making it easier for operators to manage these complex compliance processes and improve food safety. Our white paper covers topics including:
– The potential impact of foodborne illnesses on individuals and businesses
– Obstacles to maintaining consistency in food quality and brand standards
– The importance of digital solutions in driving food safety, operational performance and brand consistency
– The business benefits of applying technology
Joy Franks, Food Market Director – Europe Operating Group for Bureau Veritas, said: “There are clear advantages to implementing a digital solution when tackling food safety, not least the opportunity to improve performance and brand consistency but also to enable a risk based audit programme driven by internal monitoring results.
“Drawing on our extensive experience of working with food retail and hospitality businesses, our latest white paper looks at the challenges, whilst giving a comprehensive overview of the benefits to businesses.”
