FOOD SAFETY WITH ERP

Regardless of the type or variety of products a facility manufactures, there’s certainly a multitude of issues and concerns which challenge employees on a daily basis. Whether a facility bottles beverages, processes fruits and vegetables, cans frozen goods, bakes pies, or even cuts cheese, there are a variety of challenges – increased competition, consumer demands, shorter lead times, product quality, new and emerging technologies, and much, much more. Luckily, with the help of a modern ERP solution, challenges can be resolved, managed, and controlled with ease.

But let’s get a little more specific. What about the number one concern of food and beverage facilities… food safety? From allergens, and expiration dates to contaminated ingredients, how can an ERP help? Let’s take a look…

While there are several factors involved with food safety, manufacturers must rely on technology to control these aspects of their business as well as manage and organize their operations. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), 6%-8% of children and about 2% of adults in America suffer from food-related allergic reactions. Side effects can range from mild itching to (in rare cases) fatalities. As a result, the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act (FALCPA) recommends the use of the advisory label “May Contain” by manufacturers for consumer uses of product labeling.

Thus, it’s extremely important for end-users to keep track of the entire production process, even the tiniest details must be accounted for. Luckily, the help of a modern ERP solution can ensure carries, shippers, and receivers who transport food and/or beverages to meet and uphold compliance requirements. An ERP system helps with this by streamlining food processing with accurate reporting and business intelligence to ensure continued compliance with ever-changing regulations and requirements. Additionally, ERP allows end-users to trace the product back to the original ingredient lots used in food production or to trace a material lot from a supplier all the way up to the manufacturing plant and the distribution center to the customer. ERP systems provide the control businesses need effectively track expiration dates, ingredient attributes, and other vital information.
