The iPad app will reduce our costs and improve food safety for our Navy Sailors.

Inspect2GO’s Food Safety Inspection App ( has been selected by Goodwill Industries of Southeastern Wisconsin, Inc. (Goodwill Great Lakes), for inspection of Galleys at Naval Station Great Lakes. The iPad-based software eliminates paperwork and improves efficiencies in logging all information electronically, during kitchen/galley inspections.

This specific application is configured for daily, weekly and monthly inspections. The food safety inspector walks through the kitchen/galley following an extensive checklist.
