Automation is becoming more available and affordable. There are a number of players in the automation market for the food and meat manufacturing industry. (We have listed a few here)

Through automation continuity and cost reduction can be attained. Software solutions replaces administrative tasks and can enable more comprehensive and accurate data. Choosing a software solution that caters for all the variability in the meat industry can be a big task. There are many levels of software automation (read about software levels and functions) and selecting a software that encompasses an adequate amount of the areas that requires supervising are scares. Often companies end up with a number of software solutions, with a plethora of interfaces and licence fees to pay.
