Deconstructing Food Safety & Delivery Analytics

Food transportation, the process of moving food from the producer to consumers, is a crucial component of maintaining food safety. Ensuring food safety management during transportation is critical to prevent contamination, spoilage, and health hazards. To do this, there needs to be safeguards in place to protect the quality and integrity of the food being transported.

This is where monitoring food throughout the transportation and delivery process comes in. While there are different ways to do this, with technologies available to us today, analytics are the most accurate, efficient method of monitoring.

Find out why analytics are so critical to food safety during the transportation process and how Evigence’s technology stands above the rest.

Why Safe Food Transportation is Important

Each stage of food transportation through the supply chain involves logistical planning, monitoring, and adherence to safety regulations to ensure the freshness of the food. The efficiency of this process is crucial for maintaining food safety standards and minimizing food waste throughout the entire transportation process.

Ensuring the freshness, safety, and quality of food items is important for:

"Safe food transportation is not just about logistics; it's about protecting the health and well-being of consumers while maintaining the reputation of businesses." - Barak Alon, Product Director, Evigence.

More and more, advanced tracking technologies such as GPS, RFID (Radio Frequency Identification), and temperature sensors are being implemented to regulate and manage the conditions of food during transportation. Technologies using analytics greatly help to increase food safety compliance.

The Role of Analytics

Data analytics can help with real-time food safety management, reducing the risks of foodborne illness. Also, analytics provide important information to guide future strategies and decision-making along the supply chain.

Analytics tools for food delivery and food safety enable efficient monitoring and higher-level evaluations of supply chain processes. They also allow for gathering feedback and fostering better collaboration among food processing and service teams, which leads to ongoing improvements in the supply chain.

By strategically integrating analytics across the supply chain, the quality and safety of food products reaching consumers are greatly elevated. Analytics support food safety protocols, ensuring freshness and safety are upheld at every stage of production, distribution, and consumption.

Integrated Temperature Monitoring

Integrated temperature monitoring plays a significant role in providing accurate analytics. Refrigerated trucks equipped with smart sensors, insulated containers with automated climate controls, and digital temperature monitors offer real-time tracking, alert systems for deviations, and data recording. This helps ensure adherence to specific temperature requirements for various food categories.

State of the Art Food Monitoring with Evigence

Monitoring temperature at every stage throughout the cold chain process can help keep food safe and prevent food waste. Evigence combines sensors with data analytics to monitor food's freshness in real-time, at the item level, all the way from production to consumption.

"Our technology is not just about monitoring; it's about empowering businesses to make informed decisions that safeguard food safety and quality." - Barak Alon, Product Director, Evigence.

Evigence sensors, known as time-temperature indicators (TTIs), serve as pivotal tools in this process and have features that are unparalleled when compared to similar products in the industry – and especially compared to unreliable date codes. Our TTIs meticulously and consistently monitor the freshness of perishable items by tracking cumulative time and temperature, relaying this vital information to both employees and customers.

Evigence Food Safety & Delivery Analytics

When you partner with us for cold chain freshness management or last mile freshness management, you’ll benefit from the combination of sensors and data analytics to monitor food's freshness in real-time, at the item level, from production through consumption.

• Sensors can be seamlessly applied to each product during high-speed manufacturing processes at the retail level.

• Sensors are scanned digitally and can also be physically read, providing an instant inspection of the product’s remaining freshness. Using this technology enables you to instantly identify any decline in freshness and take the most appropriate and prompt action.

• Scanned data is uploaded to the Evigence Freshness Management Platform for analytics, providing you with insights to help you further improve the cold chain process for your products.
