Operators can reduce business insurance premiums by investing in hi-tech food safety management systems, says cloud-based automated monitoring and work management solutions company Checkit.
This follows an announcement from the company of a partnership with Towergate Insurance which will ensure all Checkit customers will secure a reduction in their business insurance premiums.
The discount is offered to businesses using Checkit technology with businesses who purchase Checkit's entry level food safety management system, Checkit Solo, receive a reduction of £60 on their annual business insurance premium with Towergate, while businesses using Checkit Professional for multi-site food safety and HACCP management can save £100 on their annual business premium for each location.
David Davies, managing director of Checkit, said: "This partnership represents a significant step forward in formally recognising the power of Checkit technology in reducing risks associated with food safety and compliance. Our customers across the UK, from small food outlets to national restaurant chains, caterers and food manufacturers, are already experiencing the benefits of replacing manual paper records with a digital system. Our agreement with Towergate Insurance adds an excellent cost-saving to that list of benefits.
"Just as car insurance premiums are reduced for those drivers who accept the installation of a ‘black box', restaurants can claim similar savings for demonstrating their own commitment to food safety through the implementation of technology."
Checkit is a cloud-based platform which schedules, monitors and records the various daily checks that are required by the Food Standards Agency and enforced by Environmental Health Officers.
