Food safety
If only she had known about the possibilities of digitalization
For us, safe food is not a fairy tale, not an abstract idea. They are a real concern for us and for our customers along the food chain. The ultimate goal. Unlike Snow White, consumers should be able to consume food with a clear conscience. However, according to the WHO, 600 million people still fall ill every year due to contaminated food, and 420,000 even die from it.

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. These detect deviations from standardized processes quickly and reliably and thus help to avoid potential risks in the first place. In this way, our customers live up to their responsibility to produce safe food.

From the sensor to the ERP, from the field to the table, we contribute to transparent product traceability with seamless digitalization solutions. The comprehensible certainty of flawless processes from origin to the point of sale is relevant and mandatory for all stakeholders. And it creates the most precious value that can be gained in the handling of food: trust. With the manufacturing and processing companies themselves – but above all with the consumer.

Reduce the risk. With well-thought-out automation
Since 1969, we have been supporting our customers in the food industry with expertise and industry know-how in the automation and digitalization of their processes. As an EHEDG member, we know the most important challenges of safe food production – and offer the right solutions to overcome them.
