Standardising your food chain operation to enhance production quality and increase customer loyalty

With rapid development of omni-channel retailing in recent years, other than consumer products, fresh produce and food products are also added to the customer's shopping wish list. Different from the conventional e-commerce products, such as electronic goods and domestic products, the shelf life of fresh produce is comparatively short as well as easily deteriorated. Thus, the quality control requirement throughout the entire food industry operation is highly increased - from supply, distribution to retailing. Standardising food product information and value chain operation is the only key to achieve an effective and traceable food system so as to enhance production quality and increase customer loyalty.
