Efficient ERP for the food industry: Microsoft Dynamics 365

The food industry is one of the most important industries in the world. However, it also faces significant challenges: Rising energy prices, tougher competition from new and emerging markets, shortages of raw materials, the increasing formation of oligopolies among suppliers, and consumers' desire for increasingly individualized and at the same time sustainable products mark the field of tension in which companies in the food industry must prove themselves. Progressive digitization in all areas of life is both the driver of these challenges and the key to solving them: it accelerates business processes, revolutionizes market activity, and unleashes creative possibilities on a scale that is as yet impossible to comprehend.

Challenges of the food industry

The food industry faces unique challenges that require a customized ERP solution:

Batch Tracking: Accurate tracking of product batches is essential to ensure food quality and safety.

Best before dates: Proper management of best before dates is critical to minimize food waste and ensure regulatory compliance.

Complex price management: Pricing food products requires flexibility to account for seasonal fluctuations and changes in demand.

Organic certifications: The food industry is increasingly influenced by organic and sustainability requirements. Managing certifications and compliance is a challenge.
