Cargill is collaborating with Frontline International and developed the Kitchen Controller™an automated oil management system. This management system, is a digital solution for foodservice operators under the new Cargill Serve™ umbrella, an initiative to help customers streamline kitchen management.
Cooking oil management helps maintain consistent food quality while operating on a thin profit margin. This solution leverages Cargill’s foodservice experience and oil quality knowledge with Frontline International’s equipment expertise and customer relationships, providing foodservice operators with an integrated, intelligent approach to oil management.
The Kitchen Controller system simplifies cooking oil management by automating the oil filtering and replacement process. At the heart of the system, a fry vat sensor gathers oil quality data. The data is then analyzed by the Kitchen Controller proprietary software and fed to a touchscreen pad. Kitchen staff use the green, yellow and red on-screen indicators on the touchpad to take action with the oil. This helps to ensure consistency and quality of fried foods and improves profitability.
