Why FOSS

The most valuable resource is data

Volumes increase. Operations turn global. Optimisation is on the menu, and even the most accomplished food and agricultural producers face the challenge of getting more and more out of their raw materials, while still improving their product quality. 

Measurement instruments in production value chains generate large amounts of data. Very little, however, is structured or used in information value chains. Intelligent information management can ensure that neither natural resources nor knowledge go to waste. Welcome to analytics beyond measure.
Digitalisation
Data harvest

Data harvests never fail

A lot can be lost and a lot can be won on the journey from raw material to finished product. Right? But where nature can wreak havoc on your production, data harvests never fail. By driving digitalisation forward, you can add a new level of automation to your business and secure quality and consistency. You will be able to limit the number of human errors that slow you down. Scale your business faster. And reduce manual labour and labour costs.

A bread maker was able to produce an additional 180,000 pounds per day, doubling previous output. This increase was due to the 11 connected machines’ remote access to historical and real-time data. Product dashboards provided a comprehensive view of the whole system. The results? Faster time to market, improved asset use, lower total cost of ownership, increased workforce efficiency and smarter expenditures.

What’s vital to successful food and agricultural production and doesn’t require feed, water or sun?

The fastest growing food and agricultural producers have already implemented data-driven production lines. Not just to strengthen daily operations, but to change – if not disrupt – the game. Automation will be automation, however, and action will always depend on the quality of data generated by the line as well as how intelligently it is put to use. Which is precisely why we deliver the accurate real-time measurements that are vital for efficient programming.

The move from analysis to analytics makes it possible to direct and oversee key processes from central hubs. We strive to ensure new standards within regulatory compliance and customer satisfaction, without ever compromising on quality.
Vital to Success
Top 100

The top 100 food and agricultural producers all run FOSS solutions

At FOSS we develop and refine instruments that measure every little step of the way, from raw material to finished product. Over the last 60 years, we have made it our business to define the standard of engineering excellence within analysis. We pioneered advanced analysis for the challenging production environments in the 1960’s, and we were the first to integrate chemical composition analysis in process lines. Now our resolve and ambition have also made us the international benchmark in the field of chemometrics. 

Our unique mathematical algorithms constantly turn data into precise action plans for a network of connected instruments in the production line. Across borders and across businesses. We offer in-depth food industry and information management knowledge to help you identify the margins that mean millions when applied to large-scale production.
