- Imagine you are running a busy café – it’s a demanding job. And customers want to be served quickly and efficiently. They also want to be correctly informed of any ingredients they might be allergic to
- On the other side of the counter, managers want their catering teams to work productively and concentrate on preparing food and serving customers, not on time-wasting, repetitive administrative tasks
- And a third factor to throw into the mix is the legislative red tape that every food establishment needs to adhere to. One such regulation is the Food Information for Consumers (FIC) Regulation, which the EU has recently introduced; restaurants, cafés and catering companies now have to legally provide details of products that contain any of the 14 allergens it has specified, such as egg, milk, peanuts and sesame seeds
Over the past decade, the auto industry has been placing big bet investments on hybrids.

Fundamental to successful food and beverage and hospitality operations is the ability to ensure food safety. Improper food handling puts both employees and guests at risk of potentially serious food borne illness and disease. 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. In an industry where safety is both paramount and easily compromised, these delays can lead to significant problems, potentially including outbreaks of serious illnesses such as salmonella and E-coli.
