Our Story

Leading up to the 2016 food safety law change in New Zealand, several councils in conjunction with the Ministry of Primary Industries (MPI) launched a pilot program to trial the new regulations. Paper records were to become a requirement of this law change. Restaurant owner Paul Wilson, Chomp’s co-founder, was part of the initial voluntary trial.
 
Keeping accurate paper records was a challenge and Paul could see there was a problem looming on the horizon for the industry. 
 
That problem resulted in Chomp, an easy to use digital food safety app designed for busy kitchens.

Speaking with restaurants in Queenstown, Paul realised other operators had identified the same issues with maintaining paper records. With a desire to help the industry, Paul identified that a digital solution was the way forward.
