Automated Labeling and Artwork Management.
How Sweet It Is.

Optimizing the food supply chain and meeting time to market for product releases is more challenging than ever. As the Food and Beverage industry has become more global, health and safety concerns have led to even stricter packaging and labeling regulations. Companies are needing solutions that help sustain compliance, improve traceability, improve time to market and reduce costs. Find out below how the right Enterprise Labeling and Artwork Management Solution can help.

Enterprise Labeling for Food and Beverage 

The right Enterprise Labeling solution lets Food and Beverage companies turn labeling into a high-value, strategic element of the overall manufacturing and distribution process. By tightly integrating food and beverage labeling with business processes you already use, you can:

  • Automate and centralize labeling to improve accuracy and eliminate complex, error-prone data replication
  • Respect and leverage “sources of truth” to comply with regulatory, customer and regional requirements
  • Easily design templates that comply with the FDA’s Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), EU’s 1169 regulation and impending GMO labeling standards to avoid fines and penalties
  • Reduce label template maintenance with an integrated and automated solution
  • Quickly configure and update labels to adopt GS1-128 barcodes and other standards, expand into new markets
  • Save time and reduce cost of implementing a validated enterprise labeling solution
  • Extend labeling to suppliers, co-packers, 3PLs to eliminate relabeling—save millions in inventory costs
  • Leverage standardized enterprise-wide labeling to improve tracking/tracing of product in event of a recall

Artwork Management for Food and Beverage 

The right Artwork Management Solution lets Food and Beverage companies take control of product packaging processes to easily meet regulatory requirements and reduce time to market. By implementing an automated Artwork Management process to manage packaging artwork throughout the product lifecycle, you can:

  • Centralize content and integrate asset management to easily control unstructured data and versions including pack copy, nutritional information and ingredients lists
  • Keep pace with brand variations utilizing dynamic data-driven packaging content to quickly and easily change high volumes of SKUs for new and improved products and improve overall time to market
  • Address multi-lingual copy requirements with phrase/translation management capabilities offering library of common phrases, in any language, to ensure product has appropriate and accurate labeling for regions across an international landscape
  • Improve traceability, aiding in tracking from farm to fork, with automated workflows that keep a permanent record of all approval points, status, dates and users associated with critical path
  • Collaborate with multiple stakeholders to ensure timely and accurate delivery of information
  • Compare packaging and ingredients list with online proofing and collaboration to ensure consistency and accuracy in packaging artworks
