From January 2006 bakers were required to keep permanent HACCP records under a new EU directive. To help companies achieve this, Electronic Temperature Instruments (ETI) (stand B530) says it has developed a cost-effective system that is user-friendly and doesn’t sacrifice quality or accuracy.

The system records temperature readings, dates and times, plus notes, using a temperature probe connected to a handheld computer, also know as a personal digital assistant (PDA), such as Palm OS or Windows Mobile. ETI’s Thermapalm HACCP software or Thermadata logger software compiles and manages the HACCP procedures.

The company can supply the PDA, probe and software as a package, or as individual items.
