The complete safety, hygiene and compliance management system
The current Food Safety Legislation (Food Safety Act 1990 and Food Hygiene Regulations 2013) require operators to monitor and control temperature checks on food and ingredients upon delivery, during storage and when handling, preparing, cooking and serving meals. In order to prevent food-borne illness and the devastating and expensive impact this can have on a brand, operators must stay on top of the legislative processes at all times and keep accurate records.
Paper-based, manual temperature monitoring records are time-consuming and labour intensive at best and at worst, inaccurate and non-compliant with legislation and regulations. Implementing automated technology and the latest systems as part of their HACCP procedures can be motivating for a kitchen team – whereas manual record keeping can be cumbersome and tiresome, sometimes leading to records being completed inaccurately or even not at all. Implementing the right system and technology can support a positive culture of best practice to maintain the highest possible hygiene rating and food safety standards to keep customers safe and demonstrate full compliance when required.
With over 30 years’ experience, Monika are the experts in connecting equipment and teams to ensure safe temperatures and working methods. Their latest innovation, Monika Prime is a complete safety, hygiene and compliance management system that helps ensure HACCP compliance with no paperwork - dramatically reducing staff time required for manual food safety or temperature checks and generating significant savings through improved efficiency and reduced waste.
Using wireless technology to record and transmit data remotely to a secure cloud based server, the MonikaPrime team management module uses a Smart PA application to enable operators to create a fully traceable record of task performance and compliance as they work, whilst also helping to streamline kitchen management and efficiency across a business. Eliminating the possibility of user-error, especially in a busy kitchen, the MonikaPrime equipment management module automatically records data continuously throughout the day. Discreet sensors inside the fridge, cold room or even warewashing appliances are configured to operate within safe temperature ranges depending on the contents stored within; triggering alerts should the unit drop outside of this set boundary to prevent the costly loss of food. With Monika Prime monitoring the performance of refrigeration plant any problems can also be identified and fixed before it fails, saving expensive repairs.
MonikaPrime can be programmed to give reminders when a hygiene or temperature probing task is due, or to clean down equipment, change cloths and even to alert staff to wash their hands. By choosing to set an audible ‘beacon’, staff can be in no doubt that the task is due and are more likely to complete it on time.
Managers can access performance metrics of equipment and teams on any device via a web browser. This keeps managers in full control and enables them to set and achieve standards for such things as carrying out hygiene checks and responding to alerts. MonikaPrime also enables multi-site operators to compare site performances, reward those with high standards, and providing clear insight for audit and training requirements for underperforming sites.
