Using Eupry in the Food Industry
Ensuring a high level of food safety is key for companies in the food industry. However, it is associated with steep costs for the individual company to monitor whether temperatures and humidity in refrigerators, cabinets, storage rooms and transportation vehicles comply with applicable regulations (EU legislation / HACCP).
Eupry makes monitoring easy and secure with a system that automatically records temperatures using wireless data loggers and ensures data storage on an innovative web platform. Furthermore, Eupry offers free annual calibration of data loggers. The system is easy and intuitive to use, and only requires WiFi.
With Eupry’s data logger, food companies can save time and money since manual registrations are no longer necessary. It is possible to be proactive since the system sends out SMS and email alarms if the temperature exceeds limit values, allowing employees to act quickly and correct errors. This ensures that food worth thousands of euros is not lost if refrigerators or freezers are defective.
Within the food industry, Eupry’s customers include dairies, such as Naturmælk, Øllingegaard and Millefood, who produce infant formulas as well as The Food Bank, which distributes surplus food to the homeless. They are very different companies, but common to all of them is that they are subject to strict rules and requirements when it comes to temperature monitoring.
Case: The organic dairy Naturmælk’s production facilities spans over 4.000 m2. In less than three hours, Eupry installed WiFi in the entire area. Afterwards data loggers could be connected and the system was ready for use.
“We have been very pleased with the cooperation with Eupry. We had expected that the installation of the system would take a couple of days. Eupry did it in 3 hours, which was a pleasant surprise.”
– Frank Kristensen, Distribution Manager at Naturmælk
Case: The organic dairy Øllingegaard, that focus on quality products, is also among Eupry’s customers. In January 2017, Naturmælk and Øllingegaard merged to achieve economies of scale. They still enjoy Eupry’s service which ensures that they easily comply with all storage and documentation requirements.
Case: Mille Food produces infant formulas based on cow’s milk. China is a major market for Mille Food since there is a huge demand for infant formulas for children of different ages in the country. It has been a huge feat for Mille Food to be approved for import in China and Eupry helps Mille Food to continuously meet the high standards set by the Chinese government.
Case: The Food Bank is an NGO reliant on volunteers, which distributes surplus food from supermarkets to homeless people. Here it is also very important that the temperatures are constant to ensure that food is not spoiled.
