Someone recently asked me what inspired me to invent the SFT2020.
It’s quite a funny story but somewhat concerning at the same time. One day I was eating lunch at a restaurant in a well-known tourist area of Sydney. I noticed that the chef was measuring the cooked chicken temperature with an infrared thermometer. I asked him why he wasn’t probing the food and he said that if he probed food with a thermometer, he would have to use alcohol wipes, so it was saving money and time to use the infrared thermometer.
I advised him to check the Food Safety Standards, but I think this message fell on deaf ears. Anyway, apart from deciding not to eat there again, it got me thinking about the question of time and the pressure on kitchen staff who are always in a rush when measuring temperature and generating their HACCP records.
I asked several facility managers how they maintained their HACCP temperature records and most confirmed that all their records were handwritten at the time of measurement. They acknowledged that this was a time consuming and error prone process.
Given that Salmonella poisonings are on the increase according to both State and Commonwealth Government Reports, careful attention to maintaining food at a safe temperature has never been more important than now.
Having established that there is a very real need to improve the way HACCP Temperature records are generated, I set about developing an instrument and associated software that would make the process more accurate, more hygienic and quicker. I named this instrument and software package, the SFT2020 HACCP System
A further benefit arising out of the development of the SFT2020 is that the labour saved in taking temperatures and creating reports reduces costs substantially and pays for the instrument in 2 months or less. It also allows your staff to spend more of their time on improving food quality.
In summary, the SFT2020 gives managers of food facilities peace of mind knowing that:
