Then comply with trading partner requirements for shipping, bar coding, RFID and EDI transactions, co-op marketing arrangements and the complexity of this manufacturing sector begins to comes to light.

Food Manufacturing, Distribution

Processed foods, beverages, milk-based products, condiments, spices and additives have special and complex requirements. Manufacturing processes from inventory control to plant floor routing operations are unlike any industry. Where else can you route based on old-time religion? Kosher requirements define the sequence of processes and selection of ingredients. Add lot control, bar-code labeling, quality control and regulatory requirements like HACCP and the need for a specialized solution becomes even more demanding. Consider demanding distribution arrangements by trading partners with EDI, RFID, pallet control and lot recall requirements and we highlight further the unique and challenging demands any integrated solution must meet.
