Our custom dev solution allows Chipotle to identify each of their 53 ingredients down to the lot code and trace them from supplier to restaurant. Every morning, cases of incoming food are scanned, allowing specific lot codes to be quickly pulled if food safety issues arise.
If a lot code is flagged for quality or safety concerns, restaurants who logged scans receive an automated call, allowing them to quickly pull the item before it makes its way to the serving line. Likewise, our technology solution automates formerly manual processes and ties multiple systems together, beautifully synthesizing data between restaurants, distribution centers, and food safety systems.
Chipotle is among the first major restaurants in the U.S. to digitally track food items. Our dev team's solution helped them meet their goal of being able to quickly act on food safety and quality concerns, reducing the 1-2 weeks' worth of time it used to take to manually call each restaurant down to just hours thanks to an automated calling process.
