Globally, the food industry churns 1.3B tons of waste, while the average plant operates at 30-60% idle capacity. An increase of 8º F can reduce shelf life for products by seven days and recalls can cost companies up to $42M in penalties. Verifying food and ingredient conditions as well as transaction handoffs lowers compliance costs and food waste, while increasing product quality.

Results

Greater visibility minimizes the impact of recalls, helps manage movement of perishables and leads to a reduction in global food waste.

Customer: Food and beverage supplier wants to track raw ingredients starting at the farm, all the way through manufacturing.

Critical Tracking Points

  1. The Source: Raw ingredients harvested from their original source, providing history and handling records in the case of a recall.
  2. The Factory: Once raw ingredients arrive at the factory, they need to be tracked throughout docks, manufacturing, staging and storage areas for quality monitoring and control.

Cloudleaf Solution

With Cloudleaf, shipments are tracked throughout the cold chain, monitoring continuous temperature, location and condition of perishable goods, while communicating dwell time thresholds. This leads to greater quality control and management of inventory with limited shelf life, minimizing recall risks and increasing retail opportunities.
