Can you easily and reliably disclose allergen information on your food packaging or labels?

Dropped in Food Industry

Pondered by Rachael

Never has it been more prevalent and important to deliver and trace exactly what you promise on your food packaging. Every ingredient you place into a product needs to be traceable to the supplier, so your business can remain accountable.

It can happen to any size company, as Sainsbury’s recently urgently recalled all it’s butter croissants due to some of them containing an almond filling that was undeclared on the packaging.

The vital importance of accurate inventory management and traceability

Going back to basics, your food business needs to have a reliable and accurate inventory management solution to ensure you can track all the ingredients that you use in your products. In a worst-case scenario, you will be accountable for tracing the root cause of any issues.

It is essential that you have full farm to fork traceability. You cannot risk managing your traceability in databases or spreadsheets separate to the main processing or production software. You’ll have no confidence in the accuracy or reliability of your results.

Failure to trace your product in response to a customer audit or a product recall could lead you to lose a major customer, your British Retail Consortium (BRC) accreditation and place your entire business at risk.

Dynamics Food will help you to track and analyse your business information. With end-to-end integration, Dynamics Food is the ideal food ERP software solution for managing your inventory and will provide you with a full audit trail and farm to fork traceability for rapid and easy management of product recalls.

Making the switch to your labels and packaging

Within Dynamics Food, you can directly create a report with the details and layout you want on your label. You can then print the report on a label printer. If you print allergen information directly onto your packaging, Dynamics Food is also the ideal platform for you to manage and centralise your design brief during the process of new product development.

The management of your inventory and the information you provide to your customers are two of the foundations of any successful Food business. If you feel that your business is plagued with inaccuracies or confusion on either front, you need to re-evaluate your operations to fill both you and your customer with confidence.
