The case study discusses the implementation of a unified security solution at My Muscle Chef’s new state-of-the-art food production facility in Sydney, Australia. The key topics covered include:

Customer: My Muscle Chef

My Muscle Chef is a leading Australian company that offers high-quality, ready-made meals and snacks. Since its inception in 2013, the company has grown significantly, culminating in opening a new $55 million AUD production facility in 2022. This facility, which spans 10,000 square meters, has increased the company’s production capacity from 500,000 to 1.2 million fresh meals per week.

Need for a Unified Security Solution

Before the new facility, My Muscle Chef faced challenges managing security due to the need for a centralised system. The company relied on multiple platforms for video surveillance, access control, license plate recognition, and intercoms, which created operational inefficiencies and logistical challenges.

Implementation of Genetec Security Center

To address these challenges, My Muscle Chef partnered with JD Security to implement Genetec Security Center, a comprehensive, unified security platform. This platform integrates various security functions into a single system, including video management, access control, license plate recognition, and intercoms.

Key Features and Benefits

  • Video Surveillance: Over 100 cameras provide real-time visibility across the facility, from production lines to the warehouse floor.
  • License Plate Recognition: Three cameras enable seamless entry and exit of pre-vetted vehicles, enhancing security and operational efficiency.
  • Access Control: The system manages access across 25+ doors, using facial recognition for secure and efficient identity verification.
  • Intercoms and Alarms: The facility has 5+ Sipelia intercoms and over 100 alarm points, which allow for effective communication and rapid response to security incidents.

Operational & Logistical Improvements

The unified security solution has streamlined operations, reduced costs, and increased productivity. It has eliminated the need for high-level integrations, reducing system errors and maintenance issues. The centralised system allows for better access and identity verification management, enhancing overall security and efficiency.

Future Compliance & Scalability

With a multi-year software maintenance agreement, My Muscle Chef is well-prepared to meet future compliance requirements and government regulations. The company is confident that the Genetec platform can scale with its business as it grows and opens new facilities.

The case study highlights how My Muscle Chef leveraged Genetec Security Center to unify and enhance its security operations, resulting in significant operational efficiencies and improved security at its new production facility.
