Food & Beverage Manufacturing, Food Processing Software
Food & Beverage manufacture involves a total sequence of food operations, including the growth and selection of raw materials, harvesting, processing, preservation, and distribution. These goods are then sold mainly to the retail or hospitality sectors, which then sell to end consumers through shops, supermarkets, restaurants, bars, etc. In general, the aim of all food manufacturing operations is to extend the availability of seasonal crops to year-round use. Food manufacturing is not solely involved with the preservation of food but is also concerned with the addition of additives such as flavours, colouring agents, preservatives, texturising agents and the final operation is packaging. Supply Chain software for the Food and Beverage industries enables streamlining and automating business processes throughout the supply chain to improve planning, optimise inventory levels, reduce costs, and respond quickly to changes in customer and supplier demand.
