Morehouse Foods

City of Industry, CA, USA

Morehouse Foods is a condiment sales and distribution company in California that strives “to do what they know how to do best and do it better than their competitors.” The company is eager to grow. In 2000, Morehouse expanded into Canada with Morehouse Canada, and now the company plans to distribute products globally. As Morehouse Foods looks forward to these thrilling advancements, they have trusted IoT in a Box to maximize the quality of the monitoring system in their facility.

The Challenge

Morehouse Foods is required by law to monitor their refrigeration units. The company had been relying on manual logging, a technique that led to high overhead costs, time-wasting, and inaccuracies. Staff members could not possibly follow proper procedures for temperature regulation in such a large facility and devote full attention to the jobs that they had been hired to perform. The threat of inventory and revenue loss was always looming.

The Solution

Our IoT in a Box solution proved to be the perfect automated temperature monitoring system for Morehouse Foods’ facilities. With our scalable solution, the niche condiment distributor will be able to expand with ease; we can install additional temperature sensors within minutes. As opposed to WiFi-based devices that might cover only a 2000-square-feet range, our cellular activation devices cover over 200,000 square feet. Sensor data is logged in real time to our easy-to-use web and mobile applications, allowing Morehouse Foods to monitor their refrigeration units from anywhere. The system sends notifications through SMS text message and e-mail as soon as a problem with temperature arises. This feature allows Morehouse Foods to resolve issues before spoilage of inventory occurs. In addition, we provide Morehouse Foods with routine compliance reports so that they can hand over pertinent documentation to regulatory agencies.
