With allergen control a priority for all companies in the sector, we have a great article from Facts on how to implement a recall-proof allergen control plan.

With supply chains under scrutiny, particularly for products that are often subject to market challenges such as cocoa, Barry Callebaut’s new compound chocolate offers a practical solution without compromising on taste of quality. In addition, Matrix Software looks at how you can enhance your cold chain management in the meat and fresh produce industry – ensuring the optimum management of stock ageing, expiry dates and stock movement – ensuring compliance with industry regulations, minimising waste and maximising profitability.
