 These smart systems will have to be implemented in the production chain of the food processing companies, implying an active involvement of the technology and solutions providers to fully understand the working conditions in the end market. Accreditation and certification to show compliance to all the strict food safety requirements are also necessary.  Finally, an integrated solution also means that the smart system seamlessly transfers data from and to the production monitoring systems, the ERP software that is in place and quality monitoring systems.
