To remain competitive, craft brewers and small to medium-sized Beverage Suppliers and Distributors need tools that favor ease of use and responsive, straightforward reporting without requiring a massive investment in infrastructure.
Craft brewers and other beverage distributors are subject to changing requirements around content labeling. They also need a consistent and efficient method for tracking their product throughout production and distribution. And customer loyalty depends on reliable quality.
The nature of food and beverage processing means that there will sometimes be fluctuations and modifications throughout production. Even slight variations will impact your product and your bottom line. So, you need real-time transparency in each step of your processes. Without insight, small variations or out-of-spec ingredients can result in missed deadlines, customer dissatisfaction, or possibly product recalls.
A crucial element in a brewery or beverage distribution business is understanding the processes that keep your product consistent. At each step, you’ll want to know what adjustments or corrective actions are necessary to keep your brews uniform. But you can only adjust what you can measure.
Your software should be able to
- Measure variations in batches and calculate predicted results
- Measure samples against company standards such as pH, gravity, or fermentation progress
- Notify your team if an ingredient or a batch is out of acceptable range
- Organize data so crucial information is available at the recipe or batch level
- Document and track any corrective actions taken
