Sustainability is on the tip of everyone’s tongue, it’s a political issue, an economic concern, and a social conversation. Adhering to new government guidelines surrounding sustainability and meeting these guidelines successfully is critical.

Whilst there are several ways the food and beverage industry can drive sustainability, complying with regulations, societal demands and economic pressures is often quite the challenge. For sustainability to become an integral part of any food and beverage company’s fabric, embracing an ERP solution is arguably the safest bet. ERP solutions that are designed with Food and Beverage manufacturers in mind can offer key solutions to sustainability concerns:

Waste reduction:

Did you know that 20-30% of the world’s food is wasted every year? With better inventory and production planning you’re able to calculate how much food is being wasted and why. Is wrong packing and handling causing problems? Is there some kind of leakage issue? You’re able to pin point the flaws and find solutions to the problems, reducing waste in the production process and contributing to a more sustainable future.


Automation and greater business intelligence leads to increased efficiencies. Through an effective ERP solution you’re able to reduce errors and delays, speed up processes and make more informed decision making through access to accurate data. Real-time data is key to a smooth operation and an ERP is the way to achieve it.

Supply and demand:

Effective demand forecasting alongside an efficient shipping process, means that you have the goods required by your customers in the right amounts, at the right time. No more, no less. Perfectly on time, never late. You’re never over producing products and running the risk of increasing your waste. A key element to supporting an efficient and sustainable production process.
