How to adapt to food regulations such as INCO and FSMA?

By | Industry News, Innovation, Methods and technology, News, Regulations | No Comments

All countries govern through a complex set of laws and regulations the food that enters and leaves that particular country. These regulations result in demands which participants in the food chain must comply with in order to ensure healthy, high-quality food for consumers.

There is an international mobilization to strengthen and improve the labeling of products for consumers. This is the case in many countries such as in all the countries of Europe with INCO 1160/2011 of in the United States with the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).

Going international has become imperative. Competition and internationalization of countries and companies has made it so. However, the marketing of products internationally involves taking into account new parameters such as the translation of thousands of labels, documents, etc. Which is certainly not a simple task without the right tools. Depending on the language of the country, you may need to bring the product in line with local regulations, to adapt certain recipes, because one ingredient accepted in one country is not necessarily accepted in another. Even if it is essential to properly manage the regulations of the country of origin, it is equally essential to be able to adapt the labels of these products to international regulations. And this can quickly be an obstacle for companies wanting to export their products.

Dedicated to food industries, out-of-home food service professionals and food distributors, discover through this white paper the methods to manage multi-regulations and develop internationally with ease.

A PLM is also a solution to transform your business

By | Industry News, Innovation, Methods and technology | No Comments

The world is changing, that’s a fact. Whether they are economists, industrialists or analysts, many see the current crisis as a profoundly altered “revolution” driven by ICTs that will force companies to review their positions, activities and strategies (for example, how the media took over the term “uberization”). Many have already passed a first course, and the change is probably not soon to stop.

In the face of these changes, it’s the companies that know the best and the quickest way to adapt to the new constraints that come from removing themselves from the game. Adaptability and agility, therefore become paramount criteria.

History of FSMA

By | Non classé, Regulations | No Comments

At first, food was hunted for but as societies developed people bought from a nearby market and after the industrial revolution and a new form of living people had to buy their food in impersonal superstores where there were aisles and aisles of food from all over the country and all over the world.

People at the time of trading and local markets certainly did not think to wonder about what it was they were eating because they trusted the people they bought the food from.

Technical Reference- Steering evolution is necessary

By | Innovation, Methods and technology | No Comments

In one of the first articles of the blog, we emphasized the importance of managing the evolution of data and thus having a dynamic vision rather than static information. Since the subject has recently returned repeatedly during discussions with prospects and customers, let’s put it to the agenda of the PLM blog.
