The client created an automated robotic premium coffee experience which required third-party certification of its sanitary design and safety. The client needed assistance navigating the regulatory classification and appropriate agency oversight, assistance with health department inspection, and development of a sanitary design framework and verification study.
Foodwit evaluated equipment, material specifications, and design renderings of the prototypes, and conducted an in-depth assessment of operational workflow and proposed maintenance instructions. We aligned with the team on objectives and timing for regulatory clearance, creating a pathway to regulatory review. Our team supported rapid design iterations through materials selection recommendations and practical experience operating cafe equipment. Finally, Foodwit developed and helped the team perform a sanitary verification exercise to collect data in anticipation of a third-party audit.
