Food Storage and Distribution
Manufacturers and producers require a supply chain operation (including food storage and distribution) that runs smoothly to ensure they can meet the requirements of their customers, getting perfect products delivered in excellent condition. Recently, those in the UK food supply chain have seen the sector become more challenging as pressure from retailers has seen a general passing of cost reductions through the supply chain to producers and their service agents.
For those working in storage and distribution centres for food and drink manufacturing and grocery retail, temperature controlled storage has never been as important. They now find themselves managing the growth in smaller, more frequent deliveries demanded as supermarkets and similar business look to reduce their inventory costs. As a result, food storage and distribution businesses are looking at efficiencies throughout their own operations.
The procedures and systems required for maintenance of the cold chain mean the equipment such as wireless temperature monitoring systems has become more important to keep products at optimum storage temperatures. By keeping warehouses and storage areas within set temperature limits, supply chain operations can drive up efficiency, avoiding breaches in storage temperatures and saving money. Automated temperature data collection reduces labour costs and the risk of human error, further increasing efficiencies that can be made.
As specialists in temperature measurement, the Comark Team are conversant with the requirements of European Hygiene Regulations. They offer on-site advice on how to install temperature monitoring systems, drawing on the experience of many installations in similar businesses.
