Produce Fresh produce packaging makes it possible to track produce from its point of origin to a retail location where it is purchased by consumers.

Produce Fresh produce packaging is an important link in protecting public health since it allows health agencies to more quickly and accurately identify the source of contaminated fruit or vegetables believed to be the cause of an outbreak of foodborne illness, remove them from the marketplace, and communicate to the supply chain.

Since many fruits and vegetables are eaten raw, the produce industry‚ from farmer to retailer, works diligently to protect these foods from contamination. Despite their best efforts, foreign matter can occasionally contaminate produce in the field or orchard, in packing or processing, in transit or storage.

Because Fresh produce packaging systems can provide information on the source, location, movement and storage conditions of produce, they also allow growers, packers, processors and distributors to identify factors affecting quality and delivery.

Beginning in 2008, an industry-led effort to enhance Fresh produce packaging throughout the entire produce supply chain was launched as the Produce Fresh produce packaging Initiative.

Traceability matrix fresh produce fruit and vegetable seafood meat
The produce (including pepper & capsicum) industry continues to evolve to meet consumers’ needs. Consumers today are much more knowledgeable and demanding about the foods they purchase. The increased focus on food safety and consumer awareness raises the need to identify and adopt business practices and standards that will aid the produce sector’s ability to track and trace product throughout the supply chain. It is important to note that different regions may have different requirements. Users are reminded to be aware of the requirements in target markets (both business and regulatory).

Meat Fresh produce packaging makes quality control, receival, batch processing, high weight accountability with no unaccounted yield loss for processing all animal and fresh meat products. The premium meat Fresh produce packaging solution for modern meat packers and meat processors.

Complete meat packing and meat processing business management. The app manages meat deliveries, batch processing and meat packing, sales and distribution. Maintain high levels of Fresh produce packaging during the meat packing process.

Meatpacking refers to the process of turning livestock into meat, including slaughter, processing, packaging and distribution. These days, the top meatpacking companies do not just produce meat, they also control how the animals are raised long before slaughter: in the chicken industry, companies oversee the process from chick genetics through supermarket packaging; in the beef industry, cattle come under the control of the big meatpackers four to six months before slaughter.
The ownership of all parts of the supply chain is called vertical integration. It gives integrators – the companies who have integrated all the different parts under one umbrella – control over price and quality; and the economies of scale they have achieved have helped to drive down the consumer prices of meat. Vertical integration has also allowed the meat industry to become highly consolidated, controlled by just a few companies: As of 2015, the four largest companies in each sector controlled 85 percent of the beef packing industry, 66 percent of pork packing, and 51 percent of broiler chicken processing. 1 The slaughter and packing plants these few companies run operate on a tremendous scale: in 2015, 85 percent of beef cattle slaughtered took place in just 30 US slaughter facilities (of the almost 650), with more than half slaughtered in 13 plants. These top 13 plants process more than one million animals per year, which is approximately 2,800 cattle/day, 365 days/year. 2

Processed meat and poultry products like bacon, hot dogs, sausage, ham and other deli meats are great American traditions and iconic foods. In fact, bacon is often called the ultimate “conversion food” because it tempts even the strictest vegetarian. Processed meat and poultry products are commonly called “convenience meats” because they have already been prepared for easy and safe consumption by consumers. These products are offered in a variety of choices so the consumer can make the best food decision for their lifestyle.
Ninety six percent of Americans make meat and poultry products part of their diets. But recently, questions have arisen about processed meat and poultry products. What are they? How are they different from fresh meat and poultry products? Are they safe and nutritious? This consumer guide aims to provide the facts about processed meat and poultry products. It also offers a guide to the many choices available in the meat and poultry case today. In this way, armed with information, you can make the best choice for you and your family. 

Abattoir Management Software

For three decades, Farmsoft has been established as a market leader in providing specialist software services to the abattoir and meat processing industry. In fact:

In terms of beef kill, our kill line software manages a high proportion of the beef kill in the UK market.
We are also the largest abattoir management software supplier within Scotland.
SI has nearly three decades’ experience of working within the meat processing industry.

“When we looked at the complexity of what was required, Farmsofts abattoir management software was the obvious choice for Pickstock”.

How our software enables abattoirs to be more profitable
All abattoir software should be able to manage the basics. Buy animals, grade them, price them, pay the farmers and label carcases for traceability.

What sets SI’s abattoir software apart is how our real-time shop floor data capture improves an abattoir’s decision-making process, enabling:

Livestock to be purchased more economically;
Carcasses to be processed more efficiently;
Yields to be managed more effectively, minimising waste;
Profit margins to be increased.
SI abattoir management software records every process pick-up point in real-time, including:

Scanning cattle passports and other documentation
Recording veterinary conditions and lairage management details
Selecting, weighing, queuing and grading.
Managing carcase intake and all chiller stock locations.
Providing end-to-end, complete digital abattoir traceability, within seconds not hours.
With SI’s abattoir management software, the levels of tacit knowledge required to operate our applications far lower than competitive software. By analysing all the process and operational complexities, and building it into the software, the chance of operational error has been minimised.

When an abattoir’s data reveals a greater understanding of its different livestock sources, it can negotiate better prices and increase margins.

Uncover greater profitability with a detailed view of base prices and grade offsets

SI’s reporting and analysis tools enable abattoirs to uncover variations for base prices and price offsets for grade, no matter how many different farms an abattoir purchases from each year. This analysis can reveal:

Which farmer produces the lowest cost animal at a specified grade
The farmers that provide the best return. These will be farms that provide the best quality animals and lowest possible price
Which farmers produce either better grades or poorer grade animals
The farmers that provided the worst animal at the most expensive price
Finally, which animals and from which farms had health problems Also, using our tracker systems, abattoir traceability data is available in seconds.
SI’s abattoir management software controls every process.

Within our kill line software, the Kill Schedule module create profiles that break the kill quantity down, by percentages and by specification. The Kill Schedule module also delivers weekly schedules based on the daily profiles.

SI has also integrated the Eurogrid grading system within our own livestock payments software.

Amongst ERP providers, it’s rare to find that their staff have direct industry experience. That’s one of the big differences with SI; our technicians have direct experience of working within abattoirs. They already understand how your environment and processes work. Being instructed about how an abattoir works isn’t something we need to be told.

If you need to deliver further deliver automation within your abattoir, speak to SI about our market-leading abattoir and kill line software.

A slaughterhouse management system is provided. The slaughterhouse management system includes: a PDA which reads production history information recorded in an ear tag attached to an object entered into a mooring site or records slaughter information in an RFID tag; an informing unit which informs a slaughter schedule; an RFID tag issuing unit which issues RFID tags to divided pieces of the slaughtered object; and a slaughterhouse management apparatus which, when the production history information recorded in the ear tag is received through the PDA, generates the slaughter schedule, informs the slaughter schedule through the informing unit, and controls the RFID tag issuing unit to record the production history information and issue the RFID tags to the divided pieces.

Farmsoft® Slaughterhouse
Software Systems

Farmsoft Slaughterhouse software is a powerful business management tool
which we customize to enhance your existing business processes
instead of forcing you to change your business processes to suit the software.

Our software helps slaughterhouses find the true cost and margins
made from their livestock purchases, by tracking from the supplier lot,
or farm of origin, through the slaughterhouse to the customer.
By doing this we can show you exactly how much of what you spend
is turned into profit, and what’s not being used.

Are you worried about losing money with the cattle you purchased
because you don’t know how much sellable meat you are producing
with your current Slaughterhouse Software?

“Our software system is designed to provide better cut yield information and eliminate that worry.”

We can maintain the identity of the carcasses and supplier lots
from reception to the boxed meat. This allows slaughterhouses to determine
their true carcass utilization and cost. With this data, you are able to see
which suppliers are generating your best yields and overall value,
and by using the cut out prices, you can compare your potential sales revenue
and margins with your actual revenue and margins, per invoice.
Wouldn’t you want to know how well your business is performing
without having to spend all that time with Excel?

We can provide a complete ERP system or individual modules which
can be customized and integrated with your existing systems to solve specific problems.

Is there a component missing from your current Slaughterhouse Software
that could maximize its value for you?

"We can value add an individual module to help fill the gaps so there
won't be any holes in your Slaughterhouse Software System"

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many of our small to medium size slaughterhouse customers
have experienced increased customer demand, while having to deal
with labor shortages and 'lack of experience' issues.

To Help with these problems, Farmsoft Technologies Inc. has worked with our customers
to make changes to their operating procedures, which in conjunction with software modifications
that we made for them, has enabled them to meet the increased demand with fewer staff.

As an example of this, we modified some of our customers box packing procedures
so it would make it easier to identify the products being packed at the scale with less of an operator responsibility.

Our slaughterhouse software systems uses our award-winning
traceability technology in innovative ways to improve operations while
integrating data collection needs for planning, purchasing, production,
sales and distribution, quality assurance, food safety and traceability.

Data is collected in real-time using rugged handheld and touch screen
computers over a secure wireless network, making the data
instantly available to track and manage production.
Managers and floor operators are alerted in advance when
a quality assurance or food safety issue is about to occur.

Primary Processing Software by Farmsoft
Purchasing, receiving, and slaughtering livestock is a complex process. There are many different steps, complexities, regulations and compliance requirements, and each step has its own unique challenges. Failure at any one of these areas can be costly, and even fatal to Abattoir operators.

Abattoir Challenges
For example, if the wrong animal is slaughtered at the wrong time or in the wrong order it can disrupt your entire operation. Or the wrong grade is applied to the wrong carcase this has flow-on effects to processing rooms, farmer payments and traceability. Mistakes such as these often mean that you have to halt production while you fix this problem, spend considerable time combing through data to ensure its validity, or worse falling outside domestic industry or export regulations and compliance.

Abattoir Solutions
Primary Processing Abattoir software from Farmsoft provides a complete integrated solution to the challenges abattoir owners face managing the kill of livestock. Our software allows abattoirs to streamline real-time information flow from livestock receipt through kill agenda to post-kill farmer feedback and payments, whilst monitoring and optimising the slaughter process through chillers, into processing and load-out. This helps Abattoirs maximise labour efficiency savings, reduce waste costs, boost overall profit margins, and maintain traceability. Farmsoft Abattoir software provides the answer for our customers by taking away the roadblocks to efficient and profitable operations.
