Testo says it is best for temperature control

21 February 2013

Frank’s Ice Cream in Wales was set up by the Italian Dallavelle family in 1912. Since then the company has progressed from being a local cottage industry to one of the most respected brands in the UK by producing high quality ice cream using traditional recipes and the finest Welsh ingredients and supplying the likes of Asda, Holland & Barrett, Morrison Tesco and Waitrose.

The company’s quality service ethic has been now further enhanced by the recent installation of a Testo Saveris Wireless Temperature and Humidity Monitoring System.

Testo Saveris is based on a series of small neat wireless temperature probes much the same size as smartphones placed around the premises and set up to  continually monitor via a compact base unit on the appropriate managers’ desk. The base communicates with the probes wirelessly as well as storing approximately a year’s readings per measurement channel. The system guarantees compliance with predefined temperature values in production, storage and transport to meet legal hygiene standards and in accordance with EN 12830.

Frank’s Ice Cream director – and descendant of the founder – Ronnie Dallavalle, said: “Having made the commitment to this requirement we carefully checked out all of the options the Testo Saveris system was clearly the best on the market. It has proved to be an excellent investment. It was easy to install and configure and we can remotely track all aspects of the cold stores and chilled room 24 hours a day and 365 days a year.

“It is especially efficient by virtue of providing data and graphs, and alerts via a SIM card. We can simply print out complete storage records for any customer situation and even in a power cut the data is safely stored. Equally Saveris enables us to automatically meet the needs of the new British Retail Consortium version 6 Certificate as well as underlining our Food Standards Agency Gold Award.

"An ongoing standard of our quality are our continual awards won at the annual industry event up against 500 other brands Testo support is a core aspect of maintaining our confidence and the  presence of the Frank’s brand. And all of which was proudly underlined by the recent visit of His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales who was truly impressed by our operation and what he saw he was certainly happy to take some samples of our product back to his nearby residence!”
