Today, more than ever, product success is built not just on brand quality, but food safety as well. With the increase in globalization and the growing complexity of supply chains, governments around the world are stepping up the complexity and scope of regulations that apply to food and beverage companies. To ensure compliance, manufacturers are now being called to implement written preventative control plans regarding potential hazards that could affect food safety and verify that suppliers – both foreign and domestic – have similar controls in place. Legislators’ concerns stem from rising concerns regarding the possible contamination of food processes. For manufacturers, the goal is to avoid potential contamination and protect their brands from product recalls, which can amount to millions of dollars in lost revenue.
Beyond regulatory compliance, food and beverage manufacturers look to technology solutions that ensure consistent and high performance at every stage of the process. Solutions for product transfer, processing and dispensing are required to meet the highest standards, which may vary widely, not only according to unique ingredients that are transported, but also to the individual application – and which stage in that application – they are employed.
