Food scares and brand reputations have led to more rigorous processes across the food and beverage industry.

Poor food handling protocols can also increase liability and undermine the bottom line. Over the years — and, in many cases, still today — the norm for food safety procedures has been a system based on the use of paper logs. Logs are manually filled out by employees and consolidated at the end of the day or later.
