Traceability in a Connected World: The Tech-Shift in Food and Beverage Manufacturing

The food and beverage manufacturing industry is changing; becoming more regulated and more complex as Internet-based technology shifts the way businesses along global supply chain communicate and work.

Consumers are demanding increased transparency, easier access to information about how products are made, country of origin of ingredients and how plants are grown. End consumers are using the Internet to search for information, and they expect manufacturers to provide online, up-to-date proof of claims.
