Complete traceability to give food and beverage businesses compliance and confidence

Using ERP software for your business primarily gives you control over your production process from raw ingredients to finished and shipped food products, but is also offers the benefits of food traceability with batch tracking, inventory counts, and complete order data.

Having a full view of your business, with traceability solutions included, in one platform, presents an ideal scenario, rather than unconnected spreadsheets and handwritten notes.

Track your trace data and always know the location of your products

One of the key features of food traceability for food and beverage businesses is knowing the use and expiry dates of their perishable ingredients and products. This means knowing which batches or products need to ship when, and ensuring money isn’t wasted through products going unused or unsold.

Using software that helps track ingredients and orders, allows you to learn more about food distribution across your business and make informed decisions about which products to prioritize and which might be costing you too much.

Produce food to meet industry standards and meet regulations

With the food safety modernization act (FSMA) in the United States, and other food production regulations globally, companies making edible products need to be more aware of where their ingredients come from, how they’re handled in production, and where they go once they’re shipped out. To maintain the position of an industry leader, you need to track your food distribution, know your raw materials and finished products in detail, and practice specific batch or lot tracking as standard. 

If you’re producing great food, and ensuring compliance, you’ll see sales trending upwards in no time.

Food ERP software FAQs
How does lot tracking help with product recalls?

If you use lot tracking, then this should help reduce the impact of product recalls, as you’ll be able to recall an individual affected lot rather than a wide number of products.

You can read more in detail about lot tracking in our blog.

Can I use barcodes to track products in my warehouse?

Yes, you can use barcodes and QR codes to implement barcode scanning of individual products or whole batches. This allows for easier lot traceability and assists with recalls as mentioned above.

You can also use serial number tracking when connected to an individual barcode.
