Habasit Saniclip - Innovative rod removal system
The new Habasit Saniclip allows for simple rod installation
and removal for applications where frequent belt sanitation
is required. Multiple Saniclips can be installed on a single
belt to allow for easy opening in several locations.

A topical example of the benefits of inte-
grated ERP capabilities is evident in the
current drought plaguing California pro-
duce processors, several experts noted.
When resources are tight, asset management, resource allocation and revenue
optimization are more easily analyzed with
seamless ERP. ERP software is vital for
optimizing use of resources like energy
and water. ERP can help manufacturers
optimize to the point that they consider
moving operations to a more cost-effective
location, Edgett said.
One chief concern with ERP systems
is communication between modules for
accounting, warehousing and inventory,
Levy said. Smaller and mid-sized food
manufacturers are looking into moving
away from disparate pieces of software.
They can adopt more integrated approach
to business, including warehouse management with barcode scanning capability,
A seamless, paperless, real-time ERP
system allows for schedule adherence
and optimization. Shipping schedules are
particularly important for manufacturers
that work with third-party pickups, as well
as those that man their own fleets, Hutter
Traceability is essential for many food
manufacturers striving to meet federal and
international food safety standards. Plenty
of processors are also working to comply
with the growing list of third-party certifications demanded by grocery chains and
These certifications can open doors for
manufacturers, as they’re nearly rule-of-thumb to sell to large chains, Levy said.
While traceability is often part of ERP
systems, these capabilities are not always
employed. But experts said that traceability is vital to keeping food safe and consumers confident.
“It’s not a question of if, it’s more of
a question of when your organization is
going to take part in of a recall,” Hutter
said. This danger is more clear and present for produce manufacturers whose
procedures don’t contain a kill-step, like
pasteurization, he said.
End-to-end lot genealogy and a fully
integrated supply chain is critical in main-
taining food safety and consumer confi-
dence, Hutter said.
“Safety is not just ability to trace the
product, but it’s the ability to maintain customer confidence once you have a recall,”
Food processing software is turning the
necessity of good traceability programs,
typically for overhead projection or regulatory compliance, into a revenue-generating
New software can better connect the
manufacturer of ingredients or products to
the end consumer, even though the product may be combined with other products
and sold to various retail chains.
Traceability measures can allow for
control of the product from the field to the
shipping dock. But when products are sold
to other manufacturers, as with ingredients, or to various retail chains, manufacturers can lose sight of where the products
go next, Hutter said.
“In the processor world, the most
demand is for traceability with lot tracking. Most processors under $30 million
in revenue continue to do this manually,”
