Food and drink processing

Processing raw material into food drives everything from logistics and office systems to harvest and production planning.

Through data and analytics every business in the supply chain can work seamlessly together; growers can match their output quality and quantity to manufacturers’ needs; manufacturers can respond to changing demands from grocers and be confident that they can meet demand.

How you can benefit:

  • Improved provenance – produce reaches the processing stage in the right quantities at the right time, from the right source with supporting on-farm operational and environmental data
  • Real-time responsiveness – data at your fingertips 24/7, enabling rapid decision-making
  • Solid compliance – data to assist internal audits and external manufacturer-specific product tests
  • Accelerated profitability – reduces delays in production, streamlines management processes and improves product delivery

How we’ve helped a business like yours

When you’re in the business of originating, handling, processing and marketing agricultural commodities, you’re handling masses of data.

This global food processor handles millions of tons of product daily: buying, selling, importing and exporting. Where its agricultural products arrive from and where they’re heading, relies on data—not least to provide sustainability and provenance insights.

With its analytics platform, Proagrica, has merged masses of this unconnected information into a single, meaningful and integrated database. 

The organization has simplified many of its processes and reduced costly errors. Deliveries of product that may have been recorded manually in the past—leading to errors and delay—are now automatically processed and acted upon, often immediately.

The greater efficiencies and speed the system has introduced to the organization has had a significant, positive impact on its suppliers and customers.

Sharing goals and efficiencies

A Proagrica customer, specializing in grain handling and agency services, was finding it challenging to handle data from multiple applications and sources. The ability to work together and share information was being compromised.

An Integration Platform as a Service (IPaaS) solution was implemented, which enabled ‘islands’ of data to converge and be consolidated into a single platform. This integration meant data could be accessed, shared and used effectively.

Actionable insight into the efficiency of its supply chain partners was surfaced, meaning that benchmarking could be established. In turn, this enhanced productivity and efficiency—both internally and externally—across its whole business.
