Fo o d M a g i c D a i l y S u n d a y, Ju l y 1 7 , 2 0 1 6 1 2 INTEGRATED CONTROL: EVERYTHING YOU NEED FOR YOUR FOOD SAFETY PLATFORM The CDC estimates that each year rough- ly one in six Americans (or 48 million people) get sick, 128,000 are hospitalized and 3,000 die of food borne diseases. Pathogens that develop from temperature and time abuse, placing foods in the "danger zone," are a leading cause. FoodSafety.gov clearly states that the way to prevention is through "Cook- Clean-Chill-Separate." These are basic measurement points in a well designed HACCP program. How do you start to implement these critical guidelines in your restaurant? Start with automating temperature taking where you can. Wireless sensors, not the kind that need to be drilled into refriger- ation walls, can be placed in all hot and cold hold stations. Choose a system that includes flexibility in sensor measure- ment devices, including humidity, IR, door open, food probes, etc. Next, auto- mate your labeling process. An optimal Food Safety Platform will include a HACCP tool that is completely real-time wireless. This plat- form delivers the ultimate in food safety implementation, monitoring and reporting. All these tools should work inde- pendently of an in-house PC and should be completely cloud/IoT accessible. There are many options on the market that offer one or two of these features. Integrated Control offers everything you need for a fully integrated solution. The newest product in its suite is the all new Scan'n' Temp. Scan'n' Temp combines tempera- ture and barcode reading capability in one handheld tool. Wirelessly, the device reports HACCP activity in real time and records all necessary parameters required to meet regulatory and health code requirements. The device also wirelessly communi- cates with the accessory auto- mated label printer to meet the needs of prep, display, inventory and grab'n'go requirements. Consistency in compliance, performance and implementa- tion is the key to surviving the food safety jungle. The best approach to tackling this complexity: find one simple platform, and the Scan'n'Temp, Temp Minder family of products is a great all-in-one choice.

THREE TIPS FOR REFRESHING YOUR BUSINESS PLAN IN 2016 By Cliff Rucker, Vice President, Sales, United States Postal Service If you could start fresh with your busi- ness, what changes would you make? Here are tips on how businesses can start off on the right foot by revisiting their business plan to help drive sales: Stand Out from the Competition Consumers are inundated with informa- tion everywhere they go. It's critical that your business is able to cut through the clutter of the modern media marketplace. If you are looking for new ways to acquire customers in 2016, consider Every Door Direct Mail ® . Every Door Direct Mail is the local- ized marketing option when your busi- ness needs to acquire new customers in key market locations. Reach local con- sumers with the USPS online Every Door Direct Mail tool, which allows you to digitally map a neighborhood to quickly find and target an ideal consumer based on demographics. According to Fortune Magazine, 80 percent of consumer dol- lars are spent within a 20 mile radius of their home. Minimize Costs Take a look at your entire business and look for areas to refocus on in the New Year, such as shipping costs — it is more important than ever to make sure you aren't paying more than you should for your shipping needs. Choose a service like USPS Priority Mail ® , which differentiates itself from its c o m p e t i t o r s with no fuel, residential or rural sur- charges for delivery to all 50 states. The Postal Service offers several outbound and return pricing options that can provide great savings, such as ounce- based, flat-rate or weight and zone pric- ing. Our Merchandise Return Service offers low rates for variable-volume returns, with a no minimum volume threshold. Innovate Companies you partner with are always making changes. At the U.S. Postal Service, we are constantly looking for new ways to provide more effective solu- tions for our customers: Better online tracking: Through an improved tracking system that offers up to 11 scans, packages can be tracked online or with text alerts — increasing package visibility like never before.
