The supply chain from the farm to the consumer’s kitchen table is becoming increasingly complex. Under the pressure of changing customer interests, increasing regulatory controls and growing global competition, the food and beverage industry is forced to create more transparency and gain more customer confidence.
They are increasingly interested in their food sources and want more individual products. These are just a few of the many factors driving the introduction of digital technologies in the
industry. For example, the Internet of Things (IoT), Tracking & Tracing, Cloud and Edge Computing or the Blockchain.
Improving food safety and transparency
They ensure better food safety, more flexibility and reliability in production and greater transparency in supply chains. In the event of recalls, they reduce effort and costs. MindSphere, Siemens’ open cloud-based IoT platform, offers the perfect way to capture data across the entire supply chain. Track & Trace solutions using the blockchain ensure complete traceability of all food and beverage ingredients and effectively help deliver on the promise of a trusted brand.
