Food and drink IT specialist CSB-System has developed a programme that enables manufacturers to meet EU regulations for food information to consumers, in particular identifying nutritional values for products, which will become mandatory by December 2016.
The CSB-System Nutritional Value Management system is able to calculate, identify and manage all ingredients, nutritional values, allergens and genetically-modified ingredients in the production process.
The programme links product ingredients with the original raw materials supplied. When recipes are created and produced, all the relevant data is then transferred so that the nutritional values, including any allergen or GMO retail, are automatically calculated and the information transferred to the product label.
The system can be tailored to the requirements of different national and international standards, giving manufacturers full flexibility in the supply of products to different countries.
