Production, as an example, is put under pressure as more compliance checks need to be performed whilst still having to produce the same amount of output. Also, the majority of food processing companies have implemented paper based food safety systems which brings about the following challenges:

  • Inefficient capturing of paper-based checklist, time consuming and escalating printing costs
  • Production data not integrated with food safety data, duplication and erroneous data collection
  • Inability to track non-conformances and corrective actions efficiently
  • Food technologists are spending more time on low-value activities such as checking on staff and collating data
  • Limited measurement of staff compliance
  • Inability to trace product easily from start to end
