Meals on Wheels meal delivery services have been operating across Australia for many decades. Currently, there are over 600 centres across the country providing meal services and support to vulnerable members of the community (elderly and frail, and people who are younger with a disability) – enabling these people to remain independent and at home.
In NSW, the community-based not-for-profit organisation has been running for 60 years. Our latest client, Meals on Wheels Queanbeyan – part of the NSW network – supplies meals and support five days per week to people living within that local government area.
For food service operations dealing with vulnerable persons, food safety is critical.
Michael White, CCP CEO, said:
“I’m delighted to see another Meals on Wheels join the CCP Network. We offer a simple low-cost way for food service businesses to automate refrigeration temperature record-keeping; and with our wireless sensors installed in fridges, staff are immediately alerted by email/SMS if temperature tolerances are breached”.
The NSW Food Authority currently licenses around 1,200 businesses that provide food service to vulnerable persons, including: hospitals, aged care facilities, same-day aged care services, respite services, and certain “delivered meal” organisations like Meals on Wheels.
A recent NSW Food Authority industry forum report (1) has highlighted the importance of food safety when serving vulnerable persons.
“Implementing automated temperature monitoring takes the guesswork and risk out of record keeping, ensures records are kept for food safety compliance, and provides the opportunity to optimise operations”, Mr White said.
Web and mobile dashboards provide business intelligence and task management.
