Constantly delivering new flavor variations and product innovations as a food and beverage producer

The food and beverage industry is one of the sectors with the highest pace of innovation – but also with the highest pressure to innovate. The development of new products and production processes, as well as the continuous improvement of individual product properties, requires significant financial investment and highly qualified personnel.

ROI-EFESO ensures that innovation processes are focused, connected and efficient:

  • Innovation strategy: development of overarching technology and innovation concepts as well as KPIs for innovation evaluation and global capacity planning in research and development.
  • Accelerated product launch: implementation of smart and modular production concepts for the accelerated realization, launch and distribution of new products.
  • Qualification: design of qualification programs to promote innovation and establishment of company-specific academies to strengthen innovation skills.
  • Sustainable innovations: anchoring the "Design for Sustainability" concept in product development to increase resource productivity and reduce environmental impact throughout the product life cycle.

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
