Testo and FoodLogiQ in cold chain tie-up
USA/GERMANY: Portable instrument manufacturer Testo has announced a tie up with US company FoodLogiQ, a leading provider of food safety compliance and traceability software.
The partnership pairs the global leader of portable HACCP and IoT capabilities with the food industry’s leading supplier management, traceability and recall management SaaS platform. It is said to pave the way for an integration of Testo’s Saveris data logging and monitoring capabilities and the FoodLogiQ Connect food recall software.
“Imagine a day when you could be notified electronically when a food product goes out of temperature range anywhere in your supply chain or connect bluetooth data loggers directly into a traceability platform. That day is today,” said FoodLogiQ CEO Dean Wiltse. “We are thrilled to be partnering with Testo, a global giant in automated quality management, and look forward to enabling our customers to take full advantage of this partnership.”
“Testo, together with FoodLogiQ, is innovating the food industry and working to create a safer, more efficient food supply chain around the world,” added Bill Pezza, president of Testo North America. “This joint partnership will completely change the way food companies manage their quality and food safety programs.”
The FoodLogiQ-Testo partnership will connect a HACCP-certified measurement data monitoring system with the industry’s leading food safety SaaS platform.
Using Testo temperature probes, food companies will be able to measure temperatures and set predetermined limits for different types of products or locations. When those products go outside those limits, anywhere from the loading dock to the freezer case, FoodLogiQ’s platform will automatically push quality incident notifications to anyone who needs to be informed.
Pairing mobile temperature sensors with traceability data will allow food companies to pinpoint exactly where and when in the chain of custody if product goes out of temperature range.
FoodLogiQ is a fast-growing food technology company boasting a customer base that includes Buffalo Wild Wings, CAVA, Chipotle Mexican Grill, CKE Restaurants, Compass Group USA, Five Guys Burgers and Fries, IPC/SUBWAY, Panda Restaurant Group, Raising Cane’s and Tropical Smoothie Cafe. FoodLogiQ also spans beyond foodservice to include food manufacturers such as the Hain Celestial Group and Seal the Seasons as well as food retailers including Whole Foods Market.
Testo, a privately-owned, German-based company, first manufactured a simple electronic thermometer. Sixty years later, the product line has expanded to create a global leader in measurement technologies, and includes a wide variety of temperature measuring instruments, enabling customers to monitor the production, transport, and preparation of foods without interruption and in compliance with regulatory standards.
