Safety and compliance case study—food and beverage industry

Introduction

The restaurant industry, more than any other industry in the nation, has suffered the most significant sales and job losses since the COVID-19 outbreak began. But you can offer them hope.

Statement of Problem

Bar and restaurant owners, food and beverage distributors, and meat production plants are all faced with the same challenge: how to safely return to normal while reducing the spread of COVID-19.

Presentation of Problem

Bar and restaurant owners, food and beverage distributors, and meat production plants have all been struggling to survive and adapt during the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, there are numerous challenges to resuming a sense of normalcy:

The facts

  • There are about 22 million restaurants worldwide and roughly 2.2 million of them will close forever. In the U.S., the industry employs 15.6 million workers, according to the National Restaurant Association.

 

  • Closures of restaurants caused a ripple effect among dependent industries such as food production, liquor, wine, and beer production, shipping, linen suppliers, fishing and farming and among musicians, florists, and delivery services.

 

  • The restaurant industry has already lost $120 billion and could lose as much as $240 billion by year’s end.

 

  • Due to measures of social distancing and general caution in public places, consumers have been dining out less and less. The year-over-year decline of seated diners in restaurants worldwide was a staggering 50.3 percent on August 2, 2020.

 

  • The virus has spread to hundreds of meat processing plants in the U.S., forcing some facilities to close, and causing tens of thousands of infections and dozens of deaths among meat processing workers.

 

 

  • The beverage sector was also impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, seeing limited availability and increased CO2 prices.

The challenges

With high unemployment and a pandemic-induced recession, customers can’t afford to spend more money at restaurants. But with higher food costs and new safety measures, the costs of running a restaurant are higher than ever.

 

  • The cost of running a restaurant is skyrocketing as owners add new safety features such as masks, face shields, gloves, no-touch thermometers and plexiglass dividers.

 

  • Meat costs have soared, with the price of standard beef cuts rising by 87% and fresh ground-beef patties up 81%. The cost of chicken breasts rose by 23% per case in the same period.

 

  • Menu prices are likely to substantially increase as restaurants reopen.

 

  • The FDA checklists covering cleaning, sanitizing and temperature screenings are overwhelming.

 

  • The CDC has an approved list of over 450 chemicals that may be used to disinfect surfaces in your establishments—most of which are harmful to humans.

Making the food and beverage industry safe again

With our deep expertise in safety, compliance and analytics, we have the experience, products and solutions to make your business safe again.

Introducing the InXite 360

The InXite 360 is a fully autonomous, multifunctional robot that purifies air, eliminates germs and kills a host of bacteria and viruses. The robot creates a 99.9% sterile environment, giving you, your employees and your customers the confidence to return to your establishment safely and in 100% compliance with state and federal guidelines.

Non-contact temperature screening

The robot can also screen and detect individuals with elevated temperatures—even in a crowd. And, because it uses non-contact thermal image technology, the chance of cross-infection is eliminated. By identifying who is at high risk, you will be able to take immediate action to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Hand sanitization

The InXite 360 dispenses our exclusive, antibacterial hand sanitizer with just a wave in front of the robot’s arm—perfect for lobbies, bars, restaurants, warehouses, stores and more.

Disinfection drawer

The robot comes complete with a convenient drawer where users may disinfect cell phones, keys, laptops and more at the touch of a button.

Self-charging

When the robot’s battery begins to run low, it’ll automatically return to the charging station. After a few hours, the InXite 360 is ready to get back to work to disinfect and sanitize your entire organization. It’s even safe to use around people, food and drinks!

Easy-to-use mobile app

With the InXite 360 mobile app, you’ll be able to remotely control your robot, view usage information, analyze data and more. You can even share this data directly with the State and health department in real time.

Save time and money

Our air sterilization robot not only keeps your employees and customers safe from harmful bacteria and viruses, it also saves you time and money. The InXite 360 works ’round the clock and doesn’t ask for a paycheck, benefits or vacation time. We even offer leasing options!
