Successful manufacturing businesses need to stay agile, predicting and responding to ever-changing demands that increase complexity in today’s fast-moving markets:
- Food consumers demanding more choice — gluten-free, organic, vegan — as well as allergen clarity and sourcing transparency.
- Regulatory updates to manage allergens, label requirements and nutritional thresholds.
- Environmental impact assessments, from brand equity and consumer groups to investor demands.
Businesses are also facing unprecedented challenges: rising energy costs, staff and skills shortages, disruptions to supply chains. Ingredient shortages can increase the risk of food fraud as new supplies and suppliers are onboarded, and the risk to human health increases when specifications are adapted.
How Can You Manage Complexity?
- Ensure that all suppliers — local, national and international — are compliant with all relevant food and market regulations.
- Track product source information.
- Create searchable and simplified record keeping.
