On Thursday, August 27, Pycap portfolio company Be-hive began work on a pilot project at Naru Izakaya restaurant to monitor the environmental conditions of its food storage units. Naru Izakaya is a Japanese restaurant serving sushi and other dishes. Because of the temperamental nature of the raw fish used in sushi, being able to monitor how it is stored is critical to ensure customers are served healthy and fresh food.
Be-hive's solution provides real-time temperature and humidity monitoring inside coolers and freezers to prevent food spoilage and maintain food safety standards. In addition its' wireless sensors & Sensa Lync AI software platform will help monitor any fluctuations that happen in temperature or humidity levels and alert the staff before spoilage happens so appropriate actions can be taken in a timely manner.
On average Naru Izakaya stores $40,000 per month of food ingredients including raw meat, fish, and vegetables. With Sensa Lync monitoring in place, the restaurant can now digitally monitor its products 24x7. The system will also allow restaurant owner & staff to remotely monitor data from their homes during the times the restaurant is closed.
