Disruptive technologies tiny sensors help Ospelt Catering reduce food waste and costs within weeks

Oslo, Norway. 19 July 2022 – Ospelt Catering, a high-end restaurant and catering company based in Liechtenstein, struggled with their fridges and freezers. After investing in a new IoT sensor solution from Disruptive Technologies (DT), they have overcome their challenges and improved their efficiency and reporting with a great ROI in just a few months.

Ospelt Catering relies on hundreds of fridges and freezers to keep their food fresh. This is a critical part of their business in order to deliver high-quality products and maintain compliance with food and health regulations. Two major challenges were identified: time spent on administrative tasks and maintenance and upkeep of cooling equipment. “We no longer have to carry out and file our temperature records by hand on a daily or weekly basis. With 15 companies and around 175 cooling devices, this is a cost factor that will amortise the acquisition costs in the first 6 months,” says head chef Philipp Moosburger. They specifically chose the DT Temperature Sensor EN12830, which is approved for monitoring the storage temperature of food. This sensor reports the temperature level at a 5,5-minute interval. The installation process was so easy that the chef did it himself.

The benefits of deploying the DT temperature sensor solution are real and tangible to Ospelt Catering. They help solve the original business challenges:

  • Legal compliance
  • Customer focus
  • Data accuracy
  • Maintenance and upkeep of cooling equipment
  • Food quality

“Basically, every company that values high-quality products must be able to monitor its premises. It doesn’t matter whether it’s open doors, room temperature, humidity, etc. Disruptive Technologies offers a good, easy-to-use product with great software that can map all parameters.” says Philipp Moosburger head chef at Ospelt Catering.
