Elektron joins Chefs’ Forum to spread the word about wireless food safety monitoring

New Checkit system to be demonstrated to leading chefs at Forum events

Elecktron Technology has partnered with the Chefs’ Forum to showcase its new Checkit wireless food safety monitoring solution that helps reduce food-borne illness, at a series of prestigious events across the South West of England. The Chefs’ Forum brings together leading Michelin Star and AA Rosette chefs with highly-acclaimed restaurateurs and the next generation of young chefs from catering colleges to share ideas, promote talent, debate industry issues and harness new trends and innovation.

With food safety a major issue for all restaurants and food outlets, Elektron Technology’s new Checkit system replaces slow, often unreliable, manual paper-based checks with a fully-automated wireless process that also sends alerts to PCs, tablets or smartphones if a problem such as a rise in temperature is detected.

Smart wireless sensors provide round-the-clock monitoring of temperature and humidity along with the door status for hot/cold food storage equipment, while flexible hand-held units collect food temperature and hygiene data at the press of a button, reducing the risk of human error. All data is time-stamped and downloaded to a centralised database, which generates food safety compliance reports along with a full audit trail.

Checkit will be demonstrated at the next Chefs’ Forum event on 3 June for the Bournemouth & Poole College hospitality and catering students’ graduation lunch, with a menu by Matthew Budden of The Highcliff Marriott.

“The Chefs’ Forum is an ideal platform to promote the benefits of wireless technology to improve food safety monitoring and reduce the risk of food-borne illness,” said Dr. Martin Nash, Product Manager at Elektron Technology.  “Even the best restaurants in the world are not immune to food hygiene problems and with increasing pressures to keep costs down, Checkit helps to save time, money and energy costs.”

The smart modular system can be user-installed in just 30 minutes and is fully scalable for any type of food operation, from a single local site through to multi-site operations, using intuitive web-based software to configure, monitor and manage the complete network from one location.
