One of my favorite manufacturing verticals has to be food and beverage; not playing favorites here, but everybody has to eat right? And, let’s be honest, who doesn’t love food? Food manufacturing is fascinating — if you haven’t already read the article on how french fries are made, I highly recommend it. Getting food from raw ingredients to a product, then that product to a store, and finally on to your table is quite a process especially — at a large scale. I invite you to take a moment to think about the snack you’re nibbling or beverage you’re sipping, what was its journey to you?

Each one is a fascinating look at the end-products manufactured by QAD customers, and chances are, you’re using one of them. Check out the Food & Beverage Industry Diagram to answer the question, “Is QAD in your kitchen?”

Solutions Built for Food & Beverage Manufacturing
Food and beverage manufacturing is complex. There are many different product lines and manufacturing processes but all producers face similar challenges. Constant adjustments to product, packaging and pricing and a lack of uniformity in the supply chain mean food and beverage manufacturers must excel at inventory and supply chain management. At the same time, they must comply with ever-evolving safety and environmental regulations. The food and beverage industry is changing faster than ever before. Consumers are demanding healthier and innovative products and they want them fresh. Home delivery of food products is growing in demand. With so much to think about in addition to producing the best product possible, why let an antiquated ERP system complicate things?
