For some years now, mobile devices have been used by food producers to record batches. As external and internal quality requirements became ever stricter, one pioneer in the industry began searching for a suitable solution about three years ago.
The high requirements had been clearly defined: The device should have a smooth surface that is easy to clean and insensitive to cleaning and disinfecting agents used in a food environment, and it should be resistant to bacteria found in milk and cream. A conspicuous color for the housing was also desirable so it could be recognized easily by detectors. Other criteria included exact recording and reporting of the use of goods (no extrapolation).
