Accurate Product-Level Temperature Data
Statistically proven to be more accurate than human probed readings
No more driver probing. veroFresh™ temperatures are monitored remotely with minimal human intervention.
Product temperatures are recorded continously throughout the delivery with hundreds or thousands of data points
Trusted by the most quality-conscious distributors
"veroFresh™ helps us to meet our own best in class standards for quality and service. At GSF, we strive to be leaders in the food distribution industry by exceeding food quality expectations and going above and beyond the current FSMA regulations."

How it Works
Software that takes storage air temperature and converts it to a highly accurate, customized simulated product temperature
Thermal Profiles can be created for your perishable products to allow the veroFresh system to calculate changes to product temperatures as surrounding air temperatures rise and fall.
We utilize the raw air temperature data from your existing sensors or hardware and have it sent automatically through to our veroFresh™ servers
Simulated Product Temperature
The veroFresh™ system analyzes this data and generates highly accurate simulated product temperatures in real time.
Why is monitoring storage air temperature not enough?
Air temperatures matter to the extent that they affect the core temperature of the food products themselves. During multi-stop deliveries, it is often impossible for a human to accurately assess how fluctuating air temperatures may or may not have affected the core temperature of the product and any risks to food quality.
How accurate are simulated product temperatures?
Typically, veroFresh temperatures can be dialed into about 1°C of actual product temperatures. The technology has been statistically proven to be more accurate than alternative methods such as manual probing, a practice that lends itself to significant data inaccuracies and inconsistencies due to human error and bias.
Does it matter where the product is placed on the truck?
Because veroFresh™ provides temperatures based on the worst-case scenario of a product, you can be sure that if the veroFresh™ temperature is in spec, then all of the product temperatures are in spec no matter where the product is located on the pallet or trailer.
How do you know the starting temperature of the products?
Most commonly, customers take a manual probe at the beginning of the delivery day and use that temperature as the starting temp of the day's routes. There are several ways to do it. During on-boarding we partner with your operations and logistics teams to deploy best practices from our experience.
How do you monitor temperatures if there are different products on the same truck?
We can monitor as many products as desired in all temperature zones. Typically our customers will choose to monitor products that are most sensitive to temperature changes, ensuring that if they are within acceptable temperature ranges, then so is everything else.
How do integrations work?
We will set up an API integration with your 3rd party sensors or systems to pull the necessary raw data into the veroFresh™ servers. Please contact us to receive further details on the API functionality and minimum requirements.
How does pricing work?
Our pricing structure consists of one-time implementation fees and an ongoing monthly service fee. Implementation fees cover integrations, thermal profiles and per site setup. The ongoing monthly service fee is charged either per refrigerated asset or per delivery route. Final price quote is based on a customer's unique needs.
Are simulated product temperatures legally acceptable?
Yes, if agreed upon by the shipper and carrier. The FDA has removed prescriptive requirements for temperature monitoring devices and continuous monitoring of temperature during transport and replaced these provisions with a more flexible approach which allows the shipper and carrier to agree to a temperature monitoring mechanism for shipments of food that require temperature control for safety.
