Arla Foods gains competitive advantage with standardized global labeling & direct marking software
Arla Foods, an international dairy company, implemented a standardized label management solution for all of its labeling and marking printers. This enabled them to reduce costs, increase label accuracy and improve productivity.

Background
Arla Foods standardizes its global labeling and direct marking software to gain a competitive advantage Arla Foods is an international dairy company that produces cheese, milk, powder and yogurt at more than 70 dairies around the world. The company is the world’s largest manufacturer of organic dairy products and sells its products under well-known brands like Lurpak® and Castello®.

Existing environment
Arla Foods prides itself on being at the forefront of technology. Arla’s master data and production data are maintained in its SAP ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system while each of its dairies is equipped with a Wonderware MES (Manufacturing Execution System) to run production. Each dairy’s local MES system synchronizes with the centralized ERP system for master and production data. Arla has thousands of label and direct marking printers across its dairies. The printers were typically integrated with the MES by local system integrators who were also responsible for supporting the integration. Each location, and in some cases, even production lines, used different methods of integrating their printers. Some printers on production lines were not integrated with the MES and production data was entered manually on standalone systems.
