Challenges of the Food & Beverages Industry
Low-Visibility Supply Chains
Consumers today are not satisfied with just delicious food or beverages. They are particularly concerned about what they put into their bodies. Today, customers want to know how their food is grown, where it is grown, and what's in it.
The food industry with opaque supply chains is unable to cater to this customer empowerment. Businesses seldom have the means to ensure traceability or accountability of products. Naturally, this leads the company to fall out of favor.
How NeuSwyft Can Help
Our specialized ERP for food and beverages is the ultimate solution to increase visibility. You can establish accountability and trace your products from origin to the table or shelves. Advanced technologies like blockchain can even provide information about each stage a product passes in the supply chain.
Inability to Forecast Demand
Inaccurate demand prediction can lead to big losses in the food industry. If you deal with perishable items, not being able to make out the demand can result in unnecessary wastage. The task is not simple, as businesses need to consolidate data from disparate locations and sources. Additionally, many problems make matters worse-
