FOOD

Joining forces against food waste.

Food belongs on the plate – not in the bin.

Billions of tons of food are wasted around the world every year. In fact, as much as one third (!) of all food produced ends up in the garbage. Together we can stop this unnecessary waste of resources and money.

We do our part with measurement solutions from Testo. Their handheld and stationary instruments allow you to meet current legal requirements and keep food fresh at all stages of the food chain. This means increased food safety that will hopefully lead to less food waste, which not only saves money but also benefits the planet.

25 years of food monitoring.
Reliable, accurate and, not least, easy to use. We are talking about data loggers from Testo. Since 1996, these smart data loggers have been monitoring and protecting food during storage and transportation. Around the clock. With each logger, you simply get 25 years of experience in food safety.

Also explore our offer for accredited calibration and service.

Calibration shows your “real” readings

Don’t forget to calibrate your measuring equipment. It provides answers to how your measured values ​​relate to values ​​from highly accurate reference equipment. And at the same time it means that you meet the Swedish Food Agency’s requirements and the criteria for ISO certifications. We offer accredited calibration of a large number of measured variables. Choose between lab or field calibration.

Safe food all the way.

Measurement solutions for unbroken cold chains. Quick, easy and HACCP approved.

Food safety, pokebowl

Fine produce can be anything but fresh!

Food that looks fresh may actually have too much bacteria. In some cases due to being stored at the wrong temperature. Another reason may be a lack of hygiene in handling. Below we list common mistakes that can lead to spoiled produce and inedible food. What is your situation?

Eight common flaws in food handling:

  • Food is at the wrong temperature or cooked at too low a temperature.
  • Cooked foods are stored for too long without adequate refrigeration.
  • Excessive loads in cargo spaces result in high temperatures.
  • Staff shortcomings in terms of handling and hygiene.
  • Distinguishing between “unclean” and “clean” hygiene zones does not work.
  • Different types of food are not handled separately.
  • Raw and cooked foods are not handled separately and are stored together.
  • Recipes and manuals for production and cooking are not followed with the risk of health hazards.

Are you aware of all the handling and temperate environments for your food? Further down the page you can download a free pocket guide on food safety from Testo. The manual is adapted to Swedish conditions and contains everything you need to know about temperature limits and what is required to meet HACCP guidelines.

“We get good quality and save money

The testo 270 frying oil meter is a popular measuring instrument for many in the food industry. Leon Greiner, Managing Director of Stepanek Butchers, says: “Since we started measuring with the testo 270, we have full control of the frying oil and can use it for longer without compromising the quality of the food. As a result of the measurements, we have reduced the cost of oil by 30-40%!”
