Powerful food safety management to address the needs of today and tomorrow

Food and beverage manufacturers must safeguard their products from new and recurring risks. Vigilance against persistent forms of contamination has significantly reduced product safety issues and the associated costly recalls.

Modern research, development, and laboratory (RD&L) capabilities aid in ensuring and documenting product safety in food and beverage facilities. Additionally, an RD&L solution integrated with other digital systems extends food safety management end-to-end, from farm to fork. Opcenter RD&L has been designed with powerful food safety management features that address today’s needs and tomorrow’s challenges.

A surprisingly broad set of implications for the food and beverage industry has surfaced

Changes in our planet's and our own well-being are spawning a surprisingly broad set of implications for the food and beverage industry in terms of product safety. Recent recalls have been widespread due to the presence of listeria, salmonella,  E. coli, and other pathogens.

Food and beverage safety risks evolve over time, across communities, and across regions. For producers to effectively demonstrate food safety in the present and future, the proper systems must be in place.

This article discusses how digitally managed food safety provides producers with a comprehensive and efficient approach from farm to fork, as well as the advantages of Siemens' powerful food safety management solution.

Forward-looking companies are adopting digital food safety management solutions

F&B companies have redefined their safety program objectives. In some cases, these are the result of new regulatory and retailer mandates. The goal is to be able to open the factory doors at any time for an unscheduled audit. To meet this requirement on a continuous basis, F&B producers must manage and document compliance with regulatory requirements and best practices throughout their value chain.

Food safety appears to be and always will be a costly proposition for the food and beverage industry. However, forward-thinking businesses recognize that the cost of food safety efforts remains significantly lower than the costs associated with contaminated products on the market. They are implementing digital food safety management solutions to improve food safety and increase production efficiencies to reduce operational costs.
