Climate change and environmental degradation are a real threat to the world and will have a detrimental impact on future generations if nothing is done to solve these issues. Working out how to do more with less is a task that the food and drinks industry is grappling with as it works towards a low-carbon circular economy. The drum beat of change is growing in urgency as major economies like the EU, Japan and China are looking at ways to create a Post-COVID19 green recovery, whilst continuing to meet UN sustainability goals. So, how can companies meet these goals as consumers increasingly push for more sustainable products and shareholders for better returns? The answer: to unlock the potential of what we call ‘the hidden factory’ and do more with less.
This white paper offers food and beverage (F&B)manufacturers insight into how to make more informed decisions, increase operational and cost efficiencies and grow sustainability, by unlocking the data and experience held within their plants and people. Through better data identification, analysis, visualisation and presentation of information, organisations can tap into their existing infrastructure unlocking ‘the hidden factory’. For the global food supply chain, the challenges are clear. It is responsible for 26% of global greenhouse gas emissions; a third of all food is lost or wasted somewhere in the supply chain; fossil fuel-based materials need to be phased out, and significant improvements are needed in the way packaging is dealt with after use.
