Cool as a cucumber
With help from CONII
, a cross-disciplinary team of faculty and students from Niagara College’s Culinary, New Media and Computer Programming programs and
professional chef Michael Olson have developed an easy-to-use and cost-effective method for digitally monitoring refrigeration.
Called Garde Manger, the system tracks refrigeration temperatures through individual temperature sensors that wirelessly send alerts to a manager’s computer or mobile device in the event of a serious temperature change. This ensures food served in restaurants remains at the right temperature to avoid food-borne illnesses.
As a result of successful testing, Garde Manger has been licensed by Quick Service Software for use by A&W.
