Technology is transforming the future of the foodservice industry, helping businesses better manage each aspect of the food supply chain. Food suppliers, processors, and retailers are increasing operational efficiency and financial growth by harnessing the power of internet-connected monitoring devices.
Internet-connected monitoring devices and sensors are what form the Internet of Things (IoT) in the foodservice industry. IoT in the foodservice industry is estimated to reach more than $35 billion this year. It is a critical component of the progress of digitalization in the food services industry.
By harnessing the power of IoT and sensor monitoring systems, owners can reinvent food safety protocols, enhance energy efficiency, and reduce labor costs. A sensor monitoring system can automatically log temperatures of prep areas, fridges, freezers, and other equipment while saving restaurants thousands per month.
