The company will implement PAC.TRUST’s Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) and Digitalisation modules to overhaul its monitoring and quality records.
The solution will be introduced at Britvic‘s plants in Astolfo Dutra and Araguari, Minas Gerais, as well as Aracati, Ceará.
According to SIG, these solutions will improve Britvic’s quality control processes and remove the requirement for converting physical records to multiple spreadsheets, while also improving information security.
In addition, PAC.TRUST’s solution is designed to reduce errors and deviations due to duplicate data entries, as well as reduce the time taken for simulations and effective traceability actions and streamline audits.
Britvic Brazil industrial head Petro Toé said: “Britvic is a company committed to the quality and safety of its products.
“We are always innovating and looking for alternative solutions to improve our processes.
“With SIG’s PAC.TRUST, we are one step ahead of other companies in our industry, with a solution that allows us to digitalise internal production processes, automating all laboratory analyses at our plants.”
SIG’s PAC.TRUST solution allows brands to have complete visibility of the production chain for each package.
Since being installed at Britvic’s facilities last year, the solution has reportedly reduced quality data analysis times and weekly record checking times by 40% and 75% respectively.
It is also claimed to have made traceability eight times faster.
SIG digital solution expert Lucas Silva said: “Britvic’s partnership with SIG and the use of our PAC.TRUST digital solution reduces the company’s time in data collection and gives real-time visibility to quality processes, enabling faster and more accurate decision-making.
“This undoubtedly generates both operational and financial benefits for Britvic.”
In February last year, Britvic partnered with sustainable packaging firm Xampla to protect vitamin-fortified drinks in clear bottles.
