“A Solution to an Age-Old Issue”: How Klipspringer’s Thermometer Calibrator Remodelled Food Service at The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Partner of choice

From a lack of accuracy and traceability to uncontrollable drifts in the displayed temperature, the issues with traditional thermometer checking methods are well-known. For Compass Group, their biggest problem was the needlessly time-consuming calibration process which – according to Mark Reynolds, Executive Head Chef – meant it would take “three or four hours to check the probes throughout the stadium”.

No longer. Since partnering with Klipspringer, Compass Group has remodelled their thermometer checks, using our digital, UKAS-accredited solution to cut costs, improve compliance, and save staff hours of time each month.

Read on to find out how.

With over 500,000 employees, Compass Group are the largest contract catering organisation in the world. For over 75 years, their companies have provided hospitality across schools, offices, factories, universities, hospitals, and, of course, major sporting venues.

The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium recently became one of these venues. When the club moved to their new 62,000-seater stadium in 2019, their hospitality team – the Levy division of Compass Group – were on the lookout for leading improvements in food service to better equip the stadium’s 64 kitchens.

Removing all subjectivity from thermometer checks in kitchens across the UK's third largest football stadium. 

Why did Compass Group choose Klipspringer?

Time and money saved

Rather than wasting hours checking that kitchen thermometers are working, Compass Group staff now use the LazaPort to verify accuracy in a matter of seconds. The LazaPort also reduces the amount of equipment discarded – as staff can recalibrate their thermometers, rather than unnecessarily replacing them – which also results in copious cost savings.

Award-winning solutions

In 2021, the Lazaport Mono was a Gold Winner at Commercial Kitchen’s Innovation Challenge, a showcase of the most promising newly launched products in the kitchen and food equipment sector. Judges described the Mono as: “…a great concept, ideal for consistency and great connectivity. A solution to an age-old issue.”

Unprecedented accuracy

With an accuracy of ±0.3°C, the UKAS-accredited LazaPort Mono is the most compact, versatile, and advanced model yet. It is a culmination of years of research and testing designed to benefit commercial kitchens, hospitality, restaurants, fine dining, and contract caterers.
