Food safety

In this picture, the fairy-tale characters Snow White, Hansel and Gretel symbolise food safety.

If only she had known about the possibilities of digitalisation

For us, safe food is not a fairy tale or an abstract idea. It is essential to us and to our customers along the food chain. It is our top priority. Unlike Snow White, consumers should be able to consume food without second thoughts. However, according to the WHO, 600 million people still fall ill and 420,000 die each year as a result of contaminated food.

With our integrated automation solutions, we have been supporting the food industry for many years in making production, processing, packaging and cold chain processes transparent and safe in accordance with the HACCP concept. They detect deviations from standardised processes quickly and reliably, helping to avoid potential risks from the outset. This way, our customers fulfil their responsibility to produce safe food.

From sensor to ERP, from farm to table, our seamless digitalisation solutions contribute to transparent product traceability. Knowing for sure that the processes run smoothly from the source to the point of sale is relevant and mandatory for all stakeholders. And it creates the most precious value that can be obtained when dealing with food: trust. This applies to the manufacturing and processing companies themselves – but above all to the consumer.
