See how “yummy” process excellence is

Production processes in food companies often have tight quantitative product specifications or qualitative requirements. Companies also need to cope with inventory, scrap, waste or overproduction while focusing on costs along the value chain. Process excellence for food requires the right set of tools and methods combined with excellent industry-specific knowledge in order to achieve sustainable improvements in and outside of the production factory.

Some questions we help our food clients answer are:

  • How can we profit from process excellence tools and methods in order to achieve further savings within extremely tight product specifications and perishable goods?
  • How can we reduce the amount of scrap or rework in our processes?
  • How can we analyze customer requirements with statistical methods and improve our quality standards accordingly?
