A-ware Food Group implements HAI*QPM software for new cheese plant
The Netherlands, September 2014 – HAI strengthens its position in the dairy market by implementing its software at the new plant of A-ware Food Group in The Netherlands. A-ware is now building the most modern dairy plant in the world with start-up planned for December 2014. The HAI*QPM software is used to unlock processing and quality data from all production units, including test results from the lab. The result is a real-time production information system. This information is used to continuously monitor the production process and quality compliance with quality and shift reports and SPC analyses for process improvement.
HAI partnerships in the dairy industry
The choice for HAI*QPM was a logical one, says Tjalling Osinga (site manager): “The software is proven technology in the dairy world, and HAI has strong partnerships with major suppliers in the dairy industry. The HAI*QPM software needs to collect information from various production units with a large number of connections. It is a major advantage for us to have one point of contact who takes full responsibility for these connections.
HAI*QPM supports A-ware in its quest for Triple A:
- A-Quality. With real-time monitoring and reporting of production and quality compliance nothing is left to chance.
- A-wareness (CSR – Corporate Social Responsibility). HAI*QPM data analysis enables A-ware to reduce waste volumes and shrink its carbon footprint.
- Ambition: The HAI*QPM data analysis functions facilitates A-ware’s quest to continuously improve cheese quality.
