Your food enterprise should address business imperatives: trace the source of ingredients in product labels; monitor ambient conditions in which products are produced, processed, stored, and transported; and report breaches in food safety regulations at the earliest.
The Infosys Agriculture practice helps food producers, processors, distributors, and warehouses prevent contamination and wastage of fresh and processed products. We implement sensor networks to monitor the condition and quality of food, while processing, in transit and on shelves at retail stores. It automates reporting of parameters such as location, temperature and shipping time. Moreover, it triggers an alert mechanism when the environmental condition of a unit / batch of perishable products deviates from recommended norms.
Our farm-to-fork traceability solutions minimize delay in food shipments and isolate the source in the event of a safety issue. We implement compliance and governance frameworks to address operational requirements for Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). It prevents physical, chemical and biological contamination, enhances the reliability of cold chains, and facilitates statutory audits. Digital systems ensure data integrity and validate compliance with food safety standards in real time.
