Join ParityFactory and West Coast Industrial Solutions to discuss how COVID-19 has shed light on the need for innovation in the food space.
It’s no secret that a lot has changed in the world over the past few months. Since the beginning of 2020, coronavirus has affected, derailed, or figuratively pressed pause on nearly every bit of society, and the food processing world is no exception. For some, this has taken the form of major downturns in business. However, many have seen the exact opposite, with record increases in demand. At the time of writing, sectors of the food industry have experienced spikes in volume ranging from 32% in milk, 30-47% across the snack sector, and a staggering 77% increase in demand for meat, and this trend holds true for nearly every vertical within the industry.
This development is, to use the word of the year, unprecedented. Working closely with processors and distributors, we’ve had a front row seat to the effects that this uptick in production has had, and many of our pre-pandemic clients have shared with us the ways that digital lot tracing has allowed them to adapt to the changing situation. In addition, we’re currently working with several new operations who came to us after realizing that their existing systems aren’t equipped to deal with their newfound demand.
We recently connected with West Coast Industrial Solutions Magazine to write about our the ways in which digital lot tracing, and the efficiency that it creates, can help any operation adapt to changing markets. You can find the full length article over on the WCIS blog and be sure to tune into the Food & Facilities webcast on Saturday, 8/15 at 11am at centralvalleytalk.com to hear us discuss the topic even deeper!
