Contain Costs in Food and Beverage with Optimized Product Specification Management

It’s time to get real about cost control. Here’s a proven strategy for smarter sourcing of raw material equivalents that cost less but perform just as well

In the face of increasing raw material costs, food and beverage (F&B) manufacturers can look to product specifications as an area to drive efficiency and savings. If these product specifications are not managed effectively, they could end up impacting margins.

But imagine if you could source for raw material equivalents that deliver high performance while being cost-effective. This is part of a digital solution that enables F&B companies to share data based on a single source of truth, so that the entire enterprise can access all ingredient and costing information globally. The result: Optimized material substitutions and procurement savings.

Just ask our F&B customers who have seen real results in smart material sourcing on the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform. Now, it’s your turn. Here’s how your digital transformation journey can take place:
