CCP Technologies Limited (“CCP” or “The Company”) is pleased to announce it has received the Food Safety Equipment & Materials Award at the 2018 Food & Beverage Industry Awards. This category celebrates new products and advancements in technology designed to improve and maintain food safety standards in manufacturing facilities around Australia.
In the food industry, refrigeration is mission critical. To underpin food safety, potentially hazardous foods must be kept under temperature control conditions and temperature records must be kept.
Michael White, Chief Executive Officer of CCP said,
“Based on data we’ve captured, 4.9% of refrigerated coolers and freezers in businesses will suffer a complete failure each year. In the food industry, if something goes wrong with a fridge, it causes enormous business disruption and can jeopardise food safety. Automated, continuous monitoring of refrigeration using modern Internet of Things (IoT) technology is a far better and more cost-effective approach.”
Global food supply chains contain hundreds of millions of critical control points, where checks (e.g. storage temperature for food) are routinely performed. Manual monitoring of control points, paper trails and information silos presents challenges for governance, risk and compliance. Secure automated data curation and exchange technologies present transformational supply chain opportunities, delivering significant value to their operations.
Mr White said,
“While strengthening regulatory compliance remains a key driver for adoption, customers are using our solution to yield significant energy savings, reduce waste and support preventive maintenance programs. By harnessing the convergence of Cloud computing, IoT with edge-computing, big data analytics, Blockchain, machine learning and artificial intelligence, CCP is delivering commercial off-the-shelf and bespoke solutions to revolutionise supply chains.”
The Company is poised to release its appliance-level energy (power) monitoring solution to empower businesses to reduce their electricity bills and a shipment monitoring solution with Blockchain features to augment perishable food transport.
