Access to real-time data is crucial for factories to excel in both food safety and efficiency. Recording real-time events is essential in order to provide an accurate understanding of efficiency and downtime losses, enabling proactive steps to be taken to improve.
Best practices in labelling are just as important as best practices in production. Your customers rely on you to communicate accurately with them (such as listing the correct ingredients or allergens) and when things are incorrectly labelled – potentially resulting in a product recall – your brand's reputation is put at risk.
Accurate date coding and food packaging is essential to today’s food and drink manufacturers who need to cut costs and improve quality in their packaging process in order to meet increased customer expectation and improve efficiency in the packaging hall.
We’re in the midst of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) revolution and now more than ever, food manufactures should not only be embracing automation and IIoT technology, but looking at their existing solutions to ensure their systems are sustainable and future-proof.
Industry 4.0 is a new approach to technology to achieve results that just weren’t possible 10 year ago. Dubbed as the fourth industrial revolution, there’s no avoiding buzzwords like this and the industrial internet of things (IIoT). But what exactly is it and what might it mean for food manufacturers?
Reports of undeclared allergens are increasing therefore food manufacturers need to be more vigilant when it comes to food labelling and the packaging of their products.
The number of food product recalls and packaging scandals in recent years has made many consumers cautious about what exactly they are eating. As a response to this, demand for traceability in the food manufacturing industry has increased.
The implications of a product recall in the food and drink industry can be very costly for the manufacturer, both in terms of financial losses and damage done to the reputation of the brand.
