The food and beverage industry relies on traceability and seamless distribution to move food safely along the supply chain. The simplest and quickest way to properly track and trace food is via a barcode. Data standards like the GS1 system allow a product to be tracked through every step in the supply chain and GS1 identifiers are recognized and used globally; they are essentially like a product’s fingerprint. No other item in the world will have the same identification number. This promotes and instills the transparency that consumers long for, throughout a product’s entire lifecycle.
The easiest route to responding to compliance mandates lies in the cloud. Companies using cloud-based labeling solutions have the agility to make the quick pivots needed to be able to keep up with ever-evolving regulations.
How does the cloud help?
- Integration with sources of truth – Disparate data sources add complexity to labeling and ultimately open the door to labeling errors. A cloud-based solution enables dynamic, data -driven labeling that helps food and beverage companies react quickly to evolving regulatory requirements.
- Easy changes and approvals –Companies need to quickly respond to constantly changing regulations. Whether it be adding simple verbiage to a label or adapting labels to ensure lot traceability, cloud solutions allow you to easily make changes and facilitate approvals regardless of where you are.
- Effectively manage recalls – In the event that you need to recall a product, you must act fast. Cloud-based labeling and packaging processes support traceability and allow you to react quickly to identify associated product lines.
- Flexibility to scale – Many food and beverage companies distribute and sell products other countries where allergen and other labeling requirements can vary. A cloud-based solution that allows you to extend compliant labeling to other sites and third parties will help ensure the requirements are met as your business grows.
