Dairycrest - Becsi




Dairy Crest Group is the UK’s leading chilled dairy foods company and manufactures a diverse and growing range of products with high throughput at each automated factory site.


The Group employs over 7000 staff at 21 sites across the UK and Ireland, with a turnover in excess of £1.4 billion per annum. Its highly perishable cheese, butter and milk products must consistently be labelled correctly, with the barcode identifiers printed on each item always readable.


Delivering wrongly or poorly labelled products can have serious consequences, with the risk of tens of thousands of pounds in fines. Further costs associated with reverse logistics, product recall and subsequent restocking are another reason why labelling is so important. If an incident occurs multiple times, the company could be de-listed as a supplier.


As a result, Dairy Crest needed a solution that quickly identified labelling errors and enabled issues to be rectified at the production stage, before products leave the factory
