Why “eSmiley”?

eSmiley was conceived in Denmark, where food safety is of the utmost priority. That's why in 2001 the Danish government founded “The Smiley System” with basic requirements for kitchen self-monitoring. In the beginning, most kitchens handled this with pen and paper. But mistakes were myriad and it took valuable time out of the ordinary day that could have been better spent cooking. 

We can make this easier, safer and faster, the eSmiley founders thought. 

They named the solution after the system it helped kitchens comply with. And because it was digital, they put an “e” in front. That’s sort of just what people did back then. A lot has happened since that time, but the name stayed the same. We’ve grown to love eSmiley. And we think you will too.


With our innovative software solutions our ambition is to become global leader of online software solutions for professional kitchens
