The bread and bakery products sector is a dynamic, innovative industry supplying food to millions of consumers every day. Profitably producing premium-quality bakery products while using state-of-the-art technology, quickly delivering fresh products to customers and subsidiaries, complying with legal requirements and establishing product transparency for consumers. Baked goods manufacturers and processors are facing increasing business pressures. Fluctuating commodity and freight costs have put added pressure on managing gross margins, more so than the common food processor. Running a profitable business has become more challenging than ever.
Thus bread and bakery producers are looking for a solution that helps with efficient management of the bakery inventories. As the bakery inventory is filled with products of a perishable nature, it becomes too complex in monitoring the inventory flows, their storages and quite challenging in meeting the increased customer demand and supply. Any inventory losses or other damages result in serious losses to the baking industry. The Solution should thus help in eliminating every complexity in manufacturing, inventory flows, distribution process etc.
