It's especially vital for manufacturers in the food and beverage industry to ensure food safety in their products so their consumers don't get sick. Nothing in life is perfect, though, and 100% prevention is nearly impossible. If and when food safety is compromised, Minitab provides the solutions to identify the failure and take action to correct it.
There are a number of reasons to run taste tests. Perhaps you’re changing a recipe because the price of ingredients inflated and you’re looking to reduce costs. You may be introducing a new product to market, or you simply want to see how your product compares to the competition. Minitab can help you analyze the feedback from taste tests to ensure that you’re getting deep and meaningful insights.
We know ensuring quality and safety standards are your highest priorities, followed closely by finding new ways to reduce costs. And that means inventory needs to be optimized so less product spoils or goes to waste. Fortunately, Minitab’s solutions have been developed to meet the needs of the food manufacturing plants of today and the factories of the future.
Only Minitab enables you to address each challenge in one market-leading ecosystem. Our solutions give you the power to collect your data automatically, or allow operators to manually enter data so you can monitor your processes in real-time. Reduce sacrificed lots with help from instant alarms that alert you to defects as they occur, giving you the power to make corrections before it’s too late. Plus, our solutions analyze your findings to make improvements and leverage prediction technology to catch problems in your manufacturing process or machinery proactively.
