Raw Material Specifications Management
The Challenge for Managers
Managing every raw material specification associated with processed food product development is an increasing challenge: Product SKUs, ingredient lists, manufacturing steps, quality controls, and regulatory requirements are complex and complicated. Effective access to this information is needed by more than just product development and your systems need to include stakeholders in sales, marketing, packaging, purchasing, quality, and production.
Maintaining up to date and detailed raw material specifications is time consuming and is resource hungry; chasing suppliers for information, creating more pressure on technical departments.
