Whether your business is a manufacturer or preparer of food, keeping accurate food inventory is an integral part of maintaining profitability and reducing waste. Because food is perishable, expiration dates demand attention to ensure quality and freshness is provided to customers.
Food products are also rigidly monitored by the Food and Drug Administration by regulations and requirements regarding handling under certain conditions and careful records must be maintained.
SOS Inventory software is ideal for tracking food inventory, offering lot tracking and food traceability capabilities to quickly track down any product or raw material items forwards or backwards in its journey. This feature allows a business to provide detailed reports of each product including vendor, delivery date, expiration date, workflow processes, shipping, delivery, customer information and anything else you wish to track.
In the event a tainted food product is recalled, your business can quickly track it down and mitigate problems, saving time, money and safeguarding your reputation.
