CCP bowls a perfect game at Park Tavern

Park Tavern was recently at the National Restaurant Show in Chicago where Chef Daniel Cleary learned about the CCP Temperature Management System. After selling his management team on the benefits of 24/7 continuous temperature monitoring and predictive maintenance, the CCP system was installed at the Minneapolis-based bowling and entertainment establishment.

The facility has walk in coolers and several freezer units that are all now operating on CCP’s system and Chef Cleary could not be happier with the install.

Australia’s third oldest club embraces IoT in the kitchen

The Union, University & Schools Club(UUSC) dates to 1857, the origins of Sydney and James Macarthur – son of famed pioneers John and Elizabeth Macarthur. Created as a private club and strengthened through several amalgamations, the Clubhouse at 25 Bent Street provides a CBD oasis for its distinguished membership.

UUSC Dinning RoomThe club offers a high-end food and beverage experience, which is intensified by the dining rooms’ history and ambience.

Private clubs operate within the hospitality industry. While clubs generate significant revenue through membership fees, food and beverage services are an important source of revenue. With a focus on consistently serving quality food, UUSC has installed CCP’s critical control point monitoring solution in their refrigeration units to underpin food safety.

Australia’s food safety laws require potentially hazardous foods to be kept within specific temperature ranges and for daily records to be kept.

Michael White, CCP’s CEO, said that automated 24/7 wireless temperature monitoring is more reliable and accurate than manual checking.

“Food safety programs often involve checking the temperatures of refrigerators manually twice per day; and many food businesses simply don’t even do this.  So, it’s great to see UUSC implement automated continuous monitoring using the latest Internet of Things (IoT) technology,” he said.

CCP continues to grow its customer-based, with UUSC the latest to join a list of private clubs who use CCP.

Cecconi’s – where family tradition meets the modern IoT

Melbourne’s Bortolotto family are renowned for having created a string of modern Italian Restaurants. It all started in Fitzroy Street, St Kilda with Bortolotto’s & Café Menis – the rest is history.

Ceccins Venue

The Family took over Cecconi’s at Crown Casino in 1998 and rapidly became well known worldwide for its food and style. In 2006, they relocated Cecconi’s to Flinders Lane in the heart of Melbourne.

Now, the third generation of Bortolotto’s are continuing to innovate. Cecconi’s have installed CCP’s Internet of Things (IoT) critical control point monitoring solution in their refrigeration units to improve food safety and reduce food waste.

Australia’s food safety laws require potentially hazardous foods to be kept within specific temperature ranges and for daily records to be kept. As Cecconi’s discovered, it’s much easier to comply with this regulatory requirement when CCP is installed. If temperature tolerances are breached because of power or mechanical failure, an alert is sent by email and SMS.

Michael White, CCP’s CEO, said “substantial changes in commercial and regulatory environments are acting as drivers in the widespread adoption of automated, 24/7 temperature monitoring solutions. Cecconi’s decision to install the CCP solution has immediately reduced their business risk.”

Like other customers, Cecconi’s can also use CCP to tune refrigeration to maximise product shelf-life and reduce operating costs. Business intelligence quickly identifies opportunities to optimise fridge performance.

CCP monitors Yumbah’s Narrawong aquaculture operation

Yumbah Aquaculture is Australia’s biggest onshore abalone farming operation. Grown with passion and pride, their shellfish are prized seafood sold to retailers, international distributors, wholesalers and restaurateurs worldwide. With an annual output of around 600 tonnes.

In the last 50 years, overfishing, habitat degradation and pollution has seen wild abalone fisheries across the globe progressively decline. On the flip-side, as the world’s population grows, so too does the demand for sustainable sources of seafood. Yumbah is fine-tuning its enterprise to bring greater efficiencies and certainty into its supply chain, driving continued business growth in local and export markets.

No stranger to high-tech systems supporting its extensive land-based aquaculture operation, Yumbah has installed CCP’s solution to monitoring critical control points at its Narrawong Farm.

Garry Boreham, Yumbah’s Narrawong Maintenance Manager said, “Monitoring temperature in our operation is critical. We’ve tried several different monitoring solutions from around the world and CCP has been the only successful implementation. I was surprised at how quick installation was and how simple the system is to use.”

The Australian aquaculture industry is worth over $1 billion and has established a reputation as a supplier of safe, high-quality seafood with producers targeting premium domestic and overseas markets. In aquaculture operations, environmental characteristics (e.g. temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen) significantly influences health, growth, spawning and product quality.

Michael White, CCP’s CEO said, “Our platform is design to accommodate a wide range of sensors and we’re delighted to be working with Yumbah to expand CCP’s use. Aquaculture is a new market for CCP, which demonstrates the vast opportunities we have in front of us.”

Caspers piesIn bakeries, production processes and monitoring is a priority to ensure product quality. Efficient and effective kitchen operations contribute to success in this highly competitive market.

Michael White, CCP’s CEO said, “Food manufacturers always have well-structured food safety programs; however, what we’re seeing is more and more innovative businesses, like Caspers, incorporate technology to improve food safety and reduce food waste.”

Caspers has installed the CCP solution to continuously monitor fridge temperatures 24/7 at their bakery.

“If there’s a problem, staff will be notified by email and SMS. Staff will save time as CCP automates the temperature records for food safety compliance. Sophisticated business intelligence provided by our system will enable Caspers to optimise their refrigeration systems”.

CCP expands reach with North American Channel Partner Program.

As CCP looks to expand its footprint in North America, it recently initiated a partnership with Minneapolis-based Shamrock Group, a refrigeration, ice and beverage product and service company.

“The Shamrock Group partnership will provide over 8,500 potential sales touch points through its 18 direct sales personnel with a strong network of customers in the cold food chain, providing CCP with greater regional coverage and brand recognition in Minnesota and surrounding markets,” said Tom Chicoine, President of CCP Network North America. In addition, Shamrock recently installed CCP temperature sensors in its 1,000,000 sq.ft. freezer warehouse.

This partnership represents proof-of-concept development for CCP North America as it looks to partner with similar HVAC/Refrigeration Service companies throughout North America. Such strategic agreements will accelerate CCP application sales through established relationships with existing customers while dramatically reducing CCP’s cost of sales and support requirements.
