Your Industry Challenges

Quality Control

Snack manufacturers need to ensure uniformity in every product they produce. But variations in raw materials and manufacturing processes can make this extremely difficult. Automated quality control checks done at the raw ingredient level, during the production process and on the final product measure everything from moisture levels, seasoning percentages and oil frying temperatures to ensure your products meet strict quality standards.

Production Scheduling

Tight margins and very little production lead time mean that snack manufacturers must be as efficient as possible in their scheduling. Our food specific software comes equipped with the functionality needed to schedule production based on shelf life, allergen segregation, equipment maintenance or manufacturing time to maximize your machinery, manpower and materials.


Leading snack manufacturers can adapt to food trends and changing consumer tastes. Advanced product development tools found in Aptean's food and beverage solutions allow R&D teams to compare current recipes and processes with new ingredients and processing techniques to uncover new products, recipes and cost-effective formulas.


Increasing consumer demands for portion-controlled snacks and on-the-go packaging can create headaches for manufacturers without advanced warehouse management capabilities. Food-specific technology creates flexibility and greater control across your organization, allowing you to streamline your packaging processes and increase overall equipment effectiveness.
