NEW HARTFORD, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ParTech, Inc. (PAR), a leading global provider of point of sale (POS) and workforce efficiency solutions to the restaurant and retail industries, announced the SureCheck® Food Safety Solution has been named to the Food Logistics Top Green Providers List. Food Logistics is the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global food supply chain.
ParTech, Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of PAR Technology Corporation (NYSE:PAR).
SureCheck is a global food safety and workforce efficiency solution assisting some of the world’s largest food companies to improve operations, compliance, and safety operations in thousands of stores.
Food Logistics’ annual Top Green Providers recognizes companies whose products, services, or exemplary leadership is enhancing sustainability within the food and beverage industry. Each year, the criteria for earning a spot on the list become more stringent for applicants. For example, the editorial staff evaluates a company’s participation in such programs as the EPA’s SmartWay and other recognized sustainability programs; facilities that are LEED-certified, and/or feature solar panels, LED lighting and other energy saving installations and retrofits that produce measurable reductions in GHG emissions, to name a few.
“The agricultural sector and food supply chains at large have long recognized the importance of environmental stewardship for long-term sustainability in both business and for future food production globally,” notes Lara L. Sowinski, editorial director. “Food Logistics remains committed to promoting those in our industry who understand their leadership role in sustainability and work to raise the bar with new products, services and strategies each year.”
“We are honored to be included in the Food Logistics Top Green Providers List,” said John W. Sammon III, General Manager, SureCheck. “One of the great things about PAR’s SureCheck solution is its ability to digitize recordkeeping through the utilization of a mobile app, cloud and specific IoT devices. Our technology eliminates the need for manual paper recording and now users can store all essential information in the cloud.
Sammon continued, “One of our partners, a mid-sized grocery chain in the North East, estimates they save 60,000 sheets of paper per year by utilizing SureCheck. One tree produces 8,333 sheets of paper. Therefore, their food safety plan equated to consuming 7.2 trees per year. Shifting to digital app and cloud represented a significant monetary savings to the business as well helping them to be greener in the process.”
