Food & Beverage
Food and beverage companies use Cloudleaf to verify food and ingredient movement, history and transaction handoffs across stakeholders for product quality and compliance mandates.

Globally, the food industry churns 1.3B tons of waste, while the average plant operates at 30-60% idle capacity. An increase of 8ยบ 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.
