Arla Foods standardises printers across its dairies

Arla Foods has been working with label and marking software supplier NiceLabel on the standardisation of labels on the industrial printers at its 70-plus dairies around the globe. 

The project is reported to have significantly reduced costs and improved label accuracy and increased productivity.

The dairy needed a single solution with a standardised method of integration between each dairy’s label and direct marking printers and its manufacturing execution system (MES).

Using NiceLabel’s label management system, it was able to automate printing by implementing a standardised integration with the MES at each dairy.

Now, master data flows directly from the MES to the printers, eliminating manual data entry errors, mislabelling and the associated costs, it is claimed.

Centralised label management provides more transparency and helps to ensure accurate product and production data throughout label printing.

The company’s centralised IT team now provides 24x7 support to each site, addressing issues before they result in production downtime.
