Calorie Counter gets fully automated HACCP system

Sri Lanka’s pioneering health food restaurant chain Calorie Counter signed an agreement with Swiss Advantage Systems (Pvt) Ltd to implement the PEx Software™ -a fully automated Food Safety Management System with the view of obtaining HACCP certification for all their locations in Colombo. HACCP is a globally accepted certification system built around seven principles including conducting Hazard Analysis of biological, chemical or physical food hazards, determining critical control points, establishing critical control limits, establishing a system to monitor control of Critical Control Points, establishing corrective actions, establishing procedure for verification to confirm that the HACCP system is working effectively and establishing documentation and records.

Founder and Managing Director of Calorie Counter Duaine Peiris said their decision to invest on the PEx Software™ was a demonstration of the organizations commitment to their customers to ensure safe food. “PEx Software™ has helped us to bring world best practices in how food safety is managed and reported in most highly developed countries. With interactive dashboards in all kitchens, the staff is provided with timely information when hazards are detected and when routine tasks falls due,” he said.

With the system freezer and chiller temperatures are automatically monitored and when temperatures fall below critical limits, auto alerts are sent by SMS to responsible staff for immediate corrective action. This way the management is constantly kept informed of any failures in critical control points which also include incoming raw food temperatures and cooking temperatures. When routine tasks are due auto red alerts ensure no task is left unattended that could give rise to a risk in food safety. Verification activities are captured by operational staff using mobile phones and transmitted to the management dashboard, where the top management has a complete view of all food safety activities in all their food serving locations in Calorie Counter’s outlets in Colombo and Galle Fort.
