Enterprise Resource Planning
Streamline operations, connect departments and create more efficient processes while addressing safety, regulatory and quality demands.
Whether you are producing cocoa products, sugar confectionery or chewing gum, many factors, such as changing consumer health trends, volatile ingredient prices and fierce competition, are increasing pressure on your revenues. Additionally, the organic and fair-trade movements and a desire for more consumer choice in vegan and reduced-sugar products has meant that confectionery manufacturers need to look to new product development and operational efficiency to remain competitive and profitable.

Consumers are demanding more detailed information and transparency about what is in their food, where it comes from and if it was produced sustainably with consideration for the environment. With a food specific software solution, confectionery companies can meet these demands for transparency and sustainability whilst increasing consumer confidence.
Confection companies need to create and customize mandatory quality checks and audits from pre-receipt of materials all the way through to production.

In addition, they can comply with food safety standards ensuring that allergens are monitored, tracked and kept segregated from other ingredients.
In the confectionery sector production efficiency is of high importance.

With industry specific software this information is efficiently captured to provide vital insights and analysis.
