December 7, 2020

In November we were excited to find out that SOFHT had selected us as finalists for three categories including Best Company, Best New Product and Best Food Technologist (Sharon Johnson). We were over the moon to have been recognised for all our hard work this year despite all the challenges we have all faced.

We are delighted to announce we won the Best New Product Award at the SOFHT Awards last Friday! This achievement means so much to our team who have worked incredibly hard over this last year to provide our customers with innovative food safety solutions.

Our Best New Product Smart Chef

At NT we have several solutions to help food businesses, suppliers and operators manage their information, products, and supply chains.

For the Best New Product Award, we entered our Smart Chef application which is the powerhouse behind our new prepacked for direct sale (PPDS) solution which allows food businesses to operate in line with Natasha’s Law.

During lockdown, we witnessed many food businesses struggle as they had to close their doors. We wanted to offer support, help businesses get back on their feet, and create a solution that would allow them to stay open and continue operating with a takeaway service within lockdown restrictions.

Over the last year, we developed a PPDS labelling solution. Originally made to give clients assured compliance for October 2021 when Natasha’s Law begins, we realised it could also give businesses the resources they need to offer takeaway food during the pandemic. We fast tracked this idea and brought it to market early to give businesses the option to remain open.

Our amazing team came together to push our solution to market a year before Natasha’s law begins, we tackled the problem head on and implemented it all whilst working from home. We felt it was crucial to offer this solution when businesses needed it most.  

Thanks to SOFHT!

We want to say a BIG thank you to everyone at SOFHT!

Thank you for putting on an entertaining event, we all really enjoyed ourselves on Friday night! And thank you for choosing us as the winners of the Best New Product Award 2020. We also want to congratulate all the other winners and finalists who have also been working extremely hard this year!

We cannot wait to see everyone in London at the SOFHT Awards 2021.
