Ohio Grocery Store Shrinks Fresh Food Write Offs by 60% after ENVIROTECH Equipment Installation
ENVIROTECH Group President Jeffrey Klein announced case study results showing that an Ohio grocery store realized a 60% annual reduction in fresh food inventory shrikage after installation of their commercial food service air purification equipment.
Mr. Klein sated "We have an amazing equipment line, with units designed especially for application in retail commercial food service operations, commercial fresh food distributor facilities and grocery stores.
There are several different units in the line for different applications. One type of unit is used in the walk-in coolers, another unit for kitchens, meat cutting and deli prep areas, still another for ice machines and finally, others for meat, poultry, fish, seafood, fruit and produce coldcases, which may also be used for those holding fresh flowers to lengthen their shelf life as well.
At its core, this equipment line uses our well-known and exclusive NASA Certified Space Technology, which in this context 'kills' the bacteria that causes spoilage and unwanted odors. It extends the shelf life of fresh foods, giving them more time to sell before they must be converted into packaged food, prepared food or discarded.
The kitchen and deli area version has filter combinations that make it impervious to food oil and grease (FOG), which prevents food born contamination while in the preparing stage for plating or packaging.
In fact, this equipment has even been installed on 30 different cruise ships, to mitigate the Norwal virus food-born illness problem, which seemed to have no other permanent and universally reliable solution.
This case study also revealed many other benefits that accrued to the store, including:
1. A 70% reduction in annual refrigeration coil maintenance expense.
2. Employees reported much less odor in the meat and fish coldcases.
3. Customers complimented the "freshness" of the air in the store.
4. Customers reported that their fresh food was lasting longer, before spoiling, in their refrigerators at home.
5. The Owner of the store reported that he had always worried about the threat of food born contamination-
6. The Owner also stated that, in now knowing the cost/benefit ratio for the equipment installation in his store, he would be happy to have doubled the investment amount.
Another potential benefit, of which we are generally aware, is the reduction in general and product liability insurance premiums that may be available from some insurance carriers, for those facilities that have our equipment installed and reducing the exposure to food born illness transmission."
In Mr. Klein's final remarks, he added "ENVIROTECH has now added an entirely new industry category for our marketing and sales department to approach. When the owners of any restaurants, commercial food service businesses, commercial food distributorships or grocery stores, learn about the tremendous value proposition provided by installing our equipment in their facilities, and the right to market their facilitiy as having our Space technology equipment installed, we expect this to become a very large segment of our annual revenue base."
