On the 2018 Melbourne Cup weekend, a freezer door left open nearly caused disaster at The Park Melbourne. Thanks to CCP, the executive chef received an alert notification which saved the day and $13,000 worth of food.
Australian Venue Co is using the CCP solution to continuously monitor refrigeration.
Dylan Kemp, Executive Chef at Australian Venue Co said,
“Over the hectic 2018 Melbourne Cup weekend, a freezer door was accidentally left open by staff at The Park Melbourne. When I received an alert notification from CCP, I checked the temperature graph on my mobile phone and realised we had a problem. With a wedding function on, I went in early and saved $13,000 worth of food. More importantly, the incident didn’t affect food service for the wedding.”
Michael White, Chief Executive Officer at CCP said,
“In professional food businesses such as the events and function centres, food service is heavily reliant on equipment operating correctly, particularly fridges and freezers. Like our other customer’s, Australian Venue Co is using CCP to strengthen food safety and reduce business risk.”
Based on data CCP has captured, 4.9% of refrigerated coolers and freezers in businesses will suffer a complete failure each year. Automated continuous monitoring of refrigeration is a far better approach than out-of-date data loggers and error-prone manual checks
Luson Health is implementing the CCP Solution across its residential care homes in the greater Melbourne region, Australia. A boutique residential aged care provider, the team at Luson have a people first philosophy and maintain the highest standard of care as trusted leaders of the aged care industry.
According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, there were 902 organisations providing residential aged care through 2,672 services at 30 June 2017. In addition, there were 1,523 organisations funded to provide home support over 2016/17 through 3,308 services. Despite growing demand for services, aged care providers face their fair share of challenges. By using CCP, Luson is aiming to increase productivity.
Nick & Brad, owners of Luson Health said,
“Australia’s ageing population is driving greater demand for aged care services. At the same time, the aged care industry faces significant workforce pressures. It is becoming increasingly important for operators to support their staff by providing productivity tools.”
“We see CCP as an Operational Technology which supports regulatory compliance and efficiency. Reliance on manually checking and recording refrigeration temperatures for food safety is time consuming, prone to errors, and doesn’t help if a refrigeration unit fails after hours. With CCP installed, temperature records are fully automated and alert notifications provide peace of mind.”
Michael White, Chief Executive Officer of CCP Technologies said,
“The Australian community values older people having access to high quality aged care services. In aged care settings, elderly people are more vulnerable to food safety risks which can have serious consequences. Luson is reducing paperwork and, at the same time, they’re cost effectively increasing food safety. It’s a win-win. That’s why CCP continues to build a foothold in the growing Aged Care sector.”
CCP estimates the food service temperature monitoring market for the Aged Care sector in Australia to be over 50,000 monitoring points.
