Food & Beverages

The food and beverage industry is one of the oldest and most successful sectors worldwide. Since the beginning, manufacturers have faced changing technologies, market demands and customer needs. Furthermore, this is a highly competitive sector where you have to stay on top with regard to:

Product development, when it comes to current health and nutrition or compliance issues,
High Quality, food safety and efficiency throughout the production process and supply chain as well as
Flexibility and new business models, when you have to meet changing consumer behaviour and individual customer requirements.

Due to several factors such as an increasing information flow (e.g. digitalization, transparency and traceability), government regulations or self-declarations (e.g. the reduction of certain ingredients or the introduction of taxes) and environmental issues (e.g. packaging issues and energy usage), manufacturers have to constantly develop new solutions, products or even business models. These solutions have to cover different aspects at the same time, which makes it even more interesting and demanding.

A water footprint is an indicator of the freshwater consumption of a product, service or region. It comprises the water use associated with agricultural products, in the form of precipitation, irrigation and evaporation, as well as wastewater and groundwater pollution. The water footprint is also referred to as “virtual water”.

We offer the integration of management systems for quality, environment and energy, based on the international ISO standards 9001, 14001 and 50001. When integrating these we make sure they are’ practical and goal-oriented.
