When you’re working with fresh produce, a few degrees can be the difference between thousands of meals, and thousands of dollars in waste. Marley Spoon, which delivers meal-kits in Europe, Australia, and the US, knows this better than anyone.

Last year, Marley Spoon’s Sydney operation narrowly avoided a huge stock loss. One Saturday night, a cold room door wasn’t closed properly in one of its distribution centers. The cold room, holding over $100k worth of produce, started heating up. Despite the fact that no one was no one on site, Marley Spoon’s Head of Quality & Safety got a text message to let her know that the temperatures were headed outside of critical range. How did she know?

Thankfully, Marley Spoon had already invested in automated inspections with SafetyCulture Sensors, which triggered an alert. She sent someone to investigate, and had the problem resolved within the hour. Learn how Sofia set up sensors at iAuditor to achieve peace of mind that her stock would be protected no matter where she or her team was.

In this webinar, we’ll take you through how you can apply these learnings to your own business, to help keep your stock (and your customers) safe.

While no two facilities are exactly alike, what they have in common is that most remain in production 24 hours. And while this “rotating door” may help with efficiency in the workplace, it also allows pests continuous opportunities to invade. As you can imagine, the earlier you can spot a pest problem, the quicker it can be resolved, before it turns into a major issue that could prove costly.

Join entomologist and Orkin Technical Services Manager Chelle Hartzer as she brings her expertise to your facility with a free webinar to discuss Integrated Pest Management (IPM) tactics. Utilizing IPM can help protect your facility from pests by helping you spot problems at every stop along your facility’s process.

During this hour-long webinar, you’ll learn about:

• What attracts pests throughout food processing facilities
• Identifying pest entry points and interior and exterior hot spots
• IPM tactics to help identify and manage conducive conditions
• Protocols to put in place for effective pest management
