Common Causes of Food Spoilage in Restaurants

There are several common causes of food spoilage in restaurants. One of the most common causes of food spoilage is improper storage. If food is not stored at the proper temperature or humidity level, it can spoil quickly and become unsafe to eat. Like a ajar refrigerator door or unexpected malfunction and blackout, all of these would cause the rise of temperature that makes food be stored at the too warm temperature condition.

Inappropriate refrigeration would lead to food spoilage in restaurants. If refrigerators and freezers are not maintained properly or are not functioning at the proper temperature, foods tend to produce the bacteria. As we know, there is the “danger range” for food storage temperature. Beyond this range, it can lead to wasted resources and then increase the unexpected extra cost for restaurant owners. For example, you need to replenish the foods again , pay for the expensive repairing bill, being found by the supervisor or even being ordered to close the business.

The Role of Environmental Monitoring Systems in Food Safety

All of these “headaches” can be addressed by the environmental monitoring system, which can  monitor environmental conditions, detect any deviations from safe levels and notify people to take emergency action, thereby reducing the food spoilage.

Environmental monitoring system plays a crucial role in maintaining food safety in restaurants. Based on loT technology, through integrating with the sensors and cloud, these systems can collect the environmental conditions automatically and finally be transmitted to people’s phone, tablet and computer.

Maybe you would say: our refrigerators can display the real-time temperature as well. However, it lacks of instant alert when there is an abnormal temperature deviation. Your time and spirit is limited as well as it is impossible for you to check the temperature at every moment. In other words, you need an assistant to keep an eye on your valuable assets (it doesn’t mean hire a fixed person to do this work. )

Hence, in virtue of the environmental monitoring system, all of the above “headaches” can be addressed by the system. It can not only monitor environmental conditions, but also detect any temperature deviations from safe levels and notify restaurant staff to take emergent action. By doing so, it ensures that food is stored at the proper temperature and helps prevent food spoilage.

Meet the regulatory compliances

By monitoring environmental conditions and detecting potential issues, these systems can help prevent food spoilage and ensure that food are stored at the optimal temperature, which adheres to the food storage requirements.

Avoid the accidental losses

By identifying potential issues before they become major problems, environmental monitoring systems would notify you to take the quick response through App notifications, email, or local alarm, minimizing the risks and prevents food loss.

Reduce the manual recording

Another benefit of using environmental monitoring systems in restaurants is improved efficiency. By collecting the data automatically, the systems replace the traditional manual logging and help restaurant staff save time to focus on other important tasks.
