Meat & Poultry

The meat and poultry industry must position itself for the future in the tense relationship between several megatrends: livestock farming already takes up almost half of the world's land area. It is therefore directly affected by changes in the global climate, declining soil fertility and water scarcity. In addition, global crises and conflicts threaten the stability of supply chains and ensure high price volatility for feed and fertilizers. At the same time, livestock farming is also at the center of the global trend towards ecologically farming. Consumers as well as national and international legislators expect animal welfare and fair working conditions to be prioritized and made transparent throughout the entire production chain.

Effectively countering trends and risks in the meat industry

Last but not least, changes in consumer behavior have led to a massive decline in meat consumption in western industrialized nations in recent years - in favor of a growing demand for plant-based or fermented meat substitutes. The industry must respond to these trends and risks with effective, integrated concepts that integrate targeted innovations, a high level of process excellence, optimized production along the entire chain from farm to fork and the sensible use of technology.

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
