The fishing industry has to maintain a fragile balance between environmentally friendly, sustainable fishing and an aquaculture that is ecologically harmless. In doing so, it is confronted with an ever-widening gap between demand and resources. While the consumption of food made from fish, crustaceans and mollusks is growing disproportionately, the primary production of the oceans is continuously decreasing due to climate change, environmental pollution, and overfishing. This trend is confronting the global fishing industry with an increasingly restrictive regulatory policy in the form of catch quotas and fishing protection zones on the one and well-informed and critical consumers on the other hand.

Future-proofing the fishing industry

In the future, seafood will play a key role in the daily diet of large parts of the world's population as well as within high-priced and exclusive price segments of the food market. This increases the need for effective food fraud prevention. Against this backdrop, the industry needs to take action in several areas: it must enable cost-efficient, ecological production and shape global supply chains for its perishable products sustainable and transparent. Additionally, it has to tap into new market and target group segments through the use of technology and innovation.

Case Study

The ROI-EFESO case study describes how a confectionery manufacturer is expanding its competitive position with a comprehensive digitalization initiative. With ROI-EFESO, it is expanding the successes already achieved by its WCOM (*World Class Operations Management) program in the direction of highly digitalized production.

Case Study

An international brewery group achieved significant OEE improvements in a WCOM pilot project with ROI-EFESO. ROI-EFESO's case study describes how this success was continued throughout the company's global value network, leading to improvements and savings.

Case Study

A dairy group identifies the topic of energy efficiency as a lever to cushion cost pressure from falling production volumes. The case study explains, how the company determines with ROI-EFESO suitable starting points for one of its plants. The potential of the measures in terms of possible energy savings, their CapEx and their amortization are specifically quantified.

Case Study

A dairy company is continuing its success story with a clear vision: After times of war and factory fires, it is building the most technologically advanced "Future Factory" in its region. With ROI-EFESO, the company is developing a concept for the factory, which is to be built on 70,000 square meters by 2030 - and is combining this planning with a digitization/Industry 4.0 initiative for ongoing production
