Product development and labelling require a high volume of ingredients, packaging and supplier data. That said, much of the work to collect and maintain this information is still done manually. Besides being inefficient, these processes are slow and error-prone, leading to costly issues and rework. In this webinar, we will explore the impact of traditional manual processes, the reasons this is no longer sustainable and the role of digital transformation in overcoming these hurdles. FoodChain ID solutions enable the digital exchange of key information and documentation, automating key aspects of the process while improving quality. Additionally, this supports full electronic traceability from the consumer label all the way back to your supplier data.
