Food and Beverage

The food industry is subject to a variety of challenges. Regulatory requirements such as batch tracking to comply with EU Regulation 178/2002 or the myriad of regulatory requirements that vary across regions and countries; the need of purchasing consistent raw materials; and competition to setup ever more efficient processes in the Distribution and Supply Chain.

The food industry today relies on supply chain efficiency which is becoming increasingly more efficient for all company sizes. Regardless of whether you are a specialist for a small assortment, or manufacture a large range: There is close interlinking of complex production processes everywhere in order to comply with manufacturing instructions and a steady delivery capacity.
