Infor quote:
"Food safety continues to make headlines across Europe and beyond," commented Mike Edgett, director, industry marketing, process manufacturing, Infor. "The horsemeat scandal is one of the more visible examples of the need to secure the food supply chain and ensure complete traceability but there are other examples that appear daily."

"Of course, prevention is the first step in quality management within the food industry. Manufacturers must have a means to measure and monitor both the ingredients and processes they use in order to deliver the quality consumers and regulators demand. Global food manufacturers are embracing technology to deliver this.

"We believe that Infor Food & Beverage is the only complete suite of applications built specifically for food manufacturers and is engineered for speed. This unique combination gives food companies greater ability to rapidly meet customer demands, quickly trace raw material supplies, swiftly track finished goods shipments and drive out costs from their existing product portfolio."
