Cuisine Wire/10559782

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - CuisineWire -- CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces an upcoming free webinar, "The Digital Transformation of Food & Beverage Product Development." The webinar will take place on Thursday, 13 July 2023, at 11:00 a.m. (EDT) and will last for one hour.

Change is accelerating in the food and beverage business, impacting all participants in the food & beverage value chain: grocery retailers, branded product manufacturers, private brand contract manufacturers, and suppliers of ingredients and raw materials. Consumers are driving some of this change by seeking more value, healthier products, improved visibility into ingredients and origins, and products with more sustainable ingredients and packaging. Other drivers for change come from within the industry as food contamination incidents remain at stubbornly high levels, traceability of ingredients appears out of reach, and food fraud continues to increase.

Product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions have a role to play in helping to manage these changes by providing better visibility into ingredients and their sources. Although PLM solutions have been successfully implemented in other industries, their adoption by food & beverage companies has been slow.
