French fries with added safety guarantee: ABUS video surveillance at Ecofrost, Belgium

Whether served with steak or fish, or just on their own with mayonnaise or ketchup, french fries are one of the most popular dishes in the world. Deep-fried potatoes originated in Belgium and are one of the country’s culinary specialities. In keeping with this promise of quality, the production processes for potato products at Ecofrost in Péruwelz – one of Belgium’s largest potato processing companies – are subject to strict controls. This is why the company chose ABUS IP cameras to monitor their entire production process, allowing them to maintain a comprehensive overview of the extensive production site at all times, day or night, even in extreme temperatures.
