Vicinity Manufacturing plays a key role in food and beverage innovation with the release of its 2.5 Vicinity formula manufacturing software. The manufacturing challenges among food and beverage manufactures are common. Compliance is often an issue that most often plagues formula manufactures in the food and beverage industry. The Vicinity solution allows compliance officers to perform a Lot Trace effortlessly, allowing a compliance officer to track from raw materials to intermediates down to finished goods and back again.
Country of origin discloser has become a significant compliance issue for formula manufacturers, especially in the food industry. The requirement to assign one or more country codes to any inbound raw materials lot has become vital. Vicinity 2.5 makes it possible to associate countries of origin of a raw material to a finished good. Vicinity users may assign one or more countries to a lot and one or more lots to a batch. Once the user definable county(s) have been assigned to a raw material lot Vicinity does all the work and can track all lots associated with a batch ticket. The result – effortless country of origin reporting.
Vicinity manufacturing co-founder, Randy Smith, explains, “Vicinity Manufacturing is the first ERP solution for formula manufactures to offer the disclosure of Country of Origin by raw materials lot as a standard feature. Our solution has the ability to not only disclose the countries represented in each batch, but also drill down to a measured percentage of each countries’ presence in a batch. We are very excited to lead the formula manufacturing software industry with this advancement.”
