Digital Food Safety company, Kelsius, is celebrating after landing a deal with Reading University to install the largest single deployment of its FoodCheck Paperless HACCP system.
The deal will see 17 individual FoodCheck systems covering every element of food production and food service rolled out across the entirety of Reading University, which is comprised of three separate campuses- Whitesbridge, London Road and Greenlands.
FoodCheck ensures the highest levels of food safety are adhered to by staff and management, while also guaranteeing maximum product safety allowing for complete food safety control. In addition to the safety element, it also massively reduces the costs associated with maintaining these standards – in some instances up to 30 hours per week.
Kelsius will deploy 20 FoodCheck tablets and over 100 temperature sensors to enable Reading University comply with regulations in the complex area of food safety.
Kelsius Sales Director Paddy Hearty said “We are delighted to have secured this deal with Reading University as it was a number of months in the preparation. We look forward to ensuring the team at the University continue to meet the high HACCP standards they strive to implement. This deal reinforces our position within the Digital Food Safety market.”
Reading University is home to 17,000 students and over 4,000 academic and support staff and was recently ranked in the top 1% of Universities worldwide (QS University Worldwide 2015/2016).
Neil Stafford from Reading University said, “The new Kelsius system is Fantastic, I am able to add/ remove staff, tasks, vendors and products within minutes. Get instant updates/ alerts on fridge and freezer issues. It does not deter the staff from using it as it is so simple to use. My aim was to provide the staff with an easy system to use, that they would not be afraid to use. I can train staff within minutes as it is so simple. I have a full tractability on everything within the system and again so easy to gain reports.
The support I have received from Geraldine and Denise has been fantastic. FoodCheck makes my job easier.”

FoodCheck by Kelsius, a cloud-based food safety monitoring system, to be introduced to the SuperValu and Centra store network.
Kelsius, the food safety monitoring technology firm headquartered in Donegal is to offer its revolutionary new FoodCheck technology to SuperValu and Centra stores.
Once adopted by retailers, this has the potential value of €2m over the next 12 months. The FoodCheck system replaces the current industry standard paper based manual monitoring and record keeping, helping to provide immediate operational savings to stores and allowing staff to spend more time in direct customer interaction.
Commenting on the contract, Eamonn Quinn, Executive Chairman of Kelsius said “Food safety is the most important issue for any company operating in food retail as the reputation of a brand can be irreparably damaged through just one major incident. Our cloud based technology enables food retailers replace existing onerous paper based check systems and save time and money whilst implementing the very best solution for food chain management. The recorded information is available immediately as it is needed and reduces the possibility of human error in the recording of data as well as providing precise data for management. We are delighted to partner with SuperValu and Centra, helping us become the retail industry standard for excellence in food safety monitoring.”
Ray Bowe, Head of Food Safety for SuperValu and Centra added, “Implementing rigorous food safety and quality controls is fundamental to SuperValu and Centra. This new to market Kelsius’ FoodCheck system ensures excellence in food safety monitoring and we are delighted to be able to offer this to our retail partners. This innovative system helps us continue to offer the highest standards of food safety and quality to our shoppers that they have come to expect.”
Kelsius’ FoodCheck technology replaces the current paper-based systems that require repetitive manual monitoring and record keeping. FoodCheck’s web based temperature monitoring and food safety compliance system automates these tasks. The system utilises systematic and preventative regimes meaning that the industry standard HACCP processes are fully followed and that nothing is left to chance in the hugely important area of food safety.
All data is stored electronically. Alerts of non-conformance are generated automatically by the system and sent as text messages to supervisors/ managers. Ultimately, this results in a more efficient and cost-effective process allowing staff to spend more time on customer service in customer facing roles as opposed to ‘behind the scenes’ in convenience stores, restaurants, hotels, fast-food outlets or catering companies. Kelsius’ FoodCheck system is the only system of its kind currently available in the market.
Applegreen awards Kelsius contract for FoodCheck across Ireland’s largest Independent fuel retailer’s food offer.
Kelsius, the food safety monitoring technology firm headquartered in Donegal has recently signed an agreement to roll out its revolutionary new FoodCheck technology across the Applegreen Network.
The contract has a potential value of €1million over 3 years as the technology rolls out across the expanding Applegreen Network and sees the FoodCheck system replace the current industry standard paper based labour intensive manual monitoring and record keeping allowing staff spend more time in direct customer interaction and sales.
Commenting on the contract, Eamonn Quinn, Executive Chairman, Kelsius said “Food Safety is a huge issue for all food businesses. The reputation damage of even one major incident can take many years to repair. Achieving a consistent standard across a branch network that has real time visibility allows retailers to know that they are on top of this issue. Using existing paper records a retailer only discovers there is a problem when it’s too late. Using FoodCheck reduces time spent on administrative tasks and allows staff to spend more time with customer related duties. FoodCheck uses wireless temperature sensors and a tablet application to automate the HACCP process. The recorded information is stored in the cloud and immediately available to the company. We are delighted that Applegreen a company renowned for being an innovator in its industry has awarded us this important contract.”
Joe Barrett, Chief Operations Officer of Applegreen further commented “We at Applegreen are delighted to be using Kelsius FoodCheck technology across our growing Applegreen network. We pride ourselves on our customer service and innovative food options whether in our small local stations or in our larger Motorway Service Areas. It’s important that our staff spend as much time as possible in customer facing roles and the FoodCheck technology ensures that the hugely important area of food safety management is managed with meticulous attention to detail but without the onerous hours of paper reporting and filing. As an independent Irish company we were delighted to be supporting another growing Irish company who came up with the perfect solution for Applegreen.”
