26 Nov How SAP Business One supports the food industry
The numbers are overwhelming, in 2017, UK consumers spent £219bn on food, drink and catering, and as recently as Q1 2018, an estimated 3.9m people were employed in the UK AgriFood sector, some 13% of the total UK workforce. Of that total, some 390,000 workers were directly employed in food and drink manufacturing.
As anyone involved in the food sector will know, fine lines are matched by thin margins, incessant innovation and constant requirements to meet an ever-growing list of statutory compliances. One small change to any of those factors could generate thousands or equally cost manufacturers drastically.
No matter how big or how small, food and beverage manufacturing companies must operate at their full capacity and always look to how they can improve their business.
