Food & Beverage Manufacturing

Changing regulations in the Food & Beverage industry are causing companies to re-evaluate their systems and processes. With legislation such as the Bioterrorism Act of 2002, food and beverage companies are assessing crucial functions such as ingredient and lot traceability, as well as their quality control procedures, to see how well they comply with the new requirements.

Facing new requirements and changing regulations

The Sage ERP X3 Process suite supports the demanding industry-specific functionality that food, beverage and nutrient manufacturers and distributors require in their businesses. This ERP software provides complete forward and backward lot traceability for each ingredient and end-item. A full audit trail and archive of historical transactions is maintained for multi-year periods.
