Foodservice industry association Restaurants Canada has partnered with technology company blueRover to launch a food delivery system.
Named the Continuous Temperature Food Delivery System, the technology is developed to ensure the appropriate temperature and food safety for delivery services offered by foodservice businesses. It is currently available through Restaurants Canada.
Restaurants Canada president and CEO Shanna Munro said: “This technology will keep businesses one step ahead of food safety risks.
“Delivery bags that allow GPS tracking, time and temperature monitoring mean they’ll be able to catch and prevent potential problems in real time plus they’ll have automated records of every off-site encounter with their products.
“It really is a great way for foodservice operators and third-party delivery companies to protect their brands and protect their customers.”
The system also offers delivery bags in a range of sizes for catering units, temperature control units for both heating and cooling, quick-connect power cords and adapters for multi-bag usage, real-time GPS tracking, time and temperature monitoring, moisture management technology and file and archive management of daily delivery reports to track food deliveries.
BlueRover CEO Loreto Saccucci said: “This Internet of Things solution ensures the optimal temperature of food is maintained to its destination through our heated and monitored container, providing complete visibility. Gone are cold soggy meals, our technology provides a fresh, hot and safe alternative.”
