Manufacturing Execution System for Food Transformation Industry

The dynamic food and beverage industry’s changing environment places significant demands on manufacturing and logistics operations. To meet these demands, OCR CHAIN MES provides your business with the functionalities that meet these new demands.

Food Safety and Brand Risk Avoidance

Over the past years, consumer demands on food safety have increased significantly and issues of quality and safety have surfaced as major issues facing food and beverage businesses. On top of this, more asset visibility and traceability is being demanded by government regulators and power retailers. Standards are rising and new regulations are being created by institutions such as Carrefour and Wal-Mart.

Lack of concordance with safety regulations can lead to loss of consumer confidence in your business’ brand name and can result in the loss of a whole product line or even the company in its entirety. In the past, companies have tended to place large amount of resources into establishing and maintaining their brand’s value, but little has been done to minimize the risk of losing brand reputation. With the recent growing number of food security incidents, consumers are beginning to lose confidence in food and beverage providers.

Industry Challenges:

Product Recall

Food and Beverage businesses are particularly interested in taking extra risk avoidance measures as they recognize that recalling a product is five times as costly as the initial cost to distribute the products. Product recall operations can drain an immense amount of resources from your company, especially if products are exported. After the products are recalled, additional costs are incurred to clean up or get rid of the defective products, further increasing costs.

Material Management Complexity
