Leading the Food & Beverage Industry to a Paperless Future

Vision For Food delivers what the food industry has been seeking for more than a decade: a way to replace existing paper based systems in the factory, and to provide management with the instant visibility and control it needs over Operational and Technical processes, as they happen. 

With Vision For Food, you can improve material yield, traceability, production accuracy, QC, adherence to spec, OEE, compliance and efficiency at the same time. It is a standard, yet immensely flexible software & hardware solution – allowing paperless data capture using lineside touchscreen terminals (up to IP69K), Smart Windows tablets, Android tablets or iPads, with links to scales, machines & existing ERP systems or databases.

The modular system also offers a collaborative supplier specifications portal and finished product specifications management functions, as well as NPD formulations, where recipes can be developed from integrated material and product specifications. Whatever your food factory produces, Vision For Food can accommodate your individual requirements, and it works just how you need it to.

VisionTouch

In the factory

The system works precisely where you want it to, across all the operational departments from goods in to despatch (and anywhere in between), because it uniquely links production recipes with their manufacturing processes, and links those directly to the plan.

Instructions, procedural documents, and production recipe images can be automatically presented to the operator from within any test. In addition, photos and notes can be added to any result, and non-compliances manged via the integral corrective actions functions.

Vision For Food provides comprehensive paperless recording for all material input checks (including substitutions), QC monitoring, and CCP tests, as well as the routine QA and internal audit functions, as required.

In the Office

You will get real-time traceability reporting, and instant access to all data as soon as it is collected. This unimpaired visibility facilitates better control and opportunity for major bottom line savings as a result, allowing for continuous improvement of efficiency, quality, and customer service.

There is also support for Development with NPD Formulations and Specification Management. Vision For Food offers a secure portal for suppliers to complete their raw material specifications, under your control.

New recipes for all products can be created using the material specifications so that nutrition, allergens, declarations etc are automatically rolled up.

Yields and cost can be applied, and user definable stage gates manage the completion and sign off for your product specs. Speed to revenue can be significantly improved as a result.

What does Vision For Food deliver?

Created by potrace 1.16, written by Peter Selinger 2001-2019

Paperless Traceability


Material and packaging inputs reference recipe and daily plan volumes, automatically taking remaining batch life into account. WIP and finished product batch numbers are automatically generated for instantaneous batch traceability.

Paperless QC


All quality control checks can be recorded, in-process, as each different item is manufactured. Specific customer standards can be automatically accommodated and the overall quality and production accuracy is improved.

Paperless QA


All routine quality assurance processes can be managed without paper. Manufacturers can efficiently control the essential internal audit function, and demonstrate compliance and adherence to food health & safety regulations.

Paperless Process
Control


All operational and technical processes can be accommodated, from goods intake, through low and high risk production, to packing and dispatch. Once set up, they can be managed as they happen, without a paper form in sight.

Paperless Temperature
Monitoring


Temperature sensors connected wirelessly or via ethernet are continuously monitored. Using OPC technology also makes it possible for automatic data capture from other sources such as scales, checkweighers, depositors etc.

Paperless OEE
Recording


Set up to record all downtime instances, with reason codes, and the ability to record all relevant actions taken to restore plant availability. As soon as the data is entered Operational Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) reporting can be updated.

“We have more control now. Variances, waste and even our labour costs are down, while accuracy, quality and yields are up."
“The system has brought all the elements together, so we have the visibility we need across all our processes and we are now around 1% turnover better off year on year as a result.”
“Our traceability used to be pretty challenging. Now it only takes a minute to perform a full trace, even where re-work is involved to 20 or more levels - and it is completely accurate."
"We are replacing all our factory paperwork and the data we collect is available straight away. We use it to improve our efficiency and overall performance."
"From my experience of systems in the food industry, what Vision for Food has accomplished is remarkable. A way to plug the holes in management information from the factory floor without replacing business systems and avoiding the huge costs and potential risks that this would otherwise involve."
“As a high street baker, when certain material specifications change, a great many products can be affected. The mass update function updates all the recipes with the new spec data and the roll ups and declarations are automatically revised. It saves us a massive amount of time!”
“As a meat processor we rely on our chillers and freezers 24/7. Vision For Food handles the automatic temperature monitoring across more than 40 locations all day, every day."
