Two Irish environmental health graduates have created a food safety app which they claim meets the needs of industry and legislation.
Emer Murphy and Michael O'Rourke created the “Safe Food, Healthy Business” app earlier this year and it has been picked up in Australia, South East Asia and the US.
"We developed the app due to the increased number of closure orders in Ireland and poor food hygiene standards worldwide," said Emer Murphy.
Features include guidelines for dealing with food poisoning outbreaks, tips for pest control identification and elimination, tips for managing food allergies, guidelines for managing E. coli O157 and HACCP templates business owners can use in order to ensure they comply with food safety laws.
"The app provides food businesses with concise factual information on the requirements and good practice methods in food safety," added Michael O’Rourke.
It is free to download from the Apple app store and is compatible with both iPhones, iPads and iTouch.
