Process manufacturing is concerned with the use of Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES), such as those used in the chemical, pharmaceutical, food & beverage, biotechnology and Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) environments.

In other words, once the product has been constructed the individual ingredients cannot be distilled and extracted back out again.
