Britvic, one of the largest companies in the world in the non-alcoholic beverage sector, announces the adoption of SIG’s PAC.TRUST solution for the digitization of its laboratory analysis processes at its operations in the Brazilian states of Ceará and Minas Gerais. Britvic will adopt the Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) and Digitalization modules of the PAC.TRUST solution, enabling traceability of internal processes in minutes.
The solution is a tool to digitize monitoring and quality records at the three plants of the Britvic group in Brazil, located in Astolfo Dutra and Araguari (MG), as well as Aracati (CE). With PAC.TRUST in operation, Britvic strengthens and brings more agility to its quality control processes, eliminating the need to convert physical records to multiple spreadsheets, and providing more security to information within the respective plants. This digitization minimizes errors and deviations due to incorrect records caused by duplicate data entries. PAC.TRUST also allows Britvic to reduce the time in simulations and effective traceability actions, simplify audits, and bring even more reliability to all processes involved in the supply chain, reinforcing its commitment to product quality and its growth strategy.
For Lucas Silva, digital solution expert, SIG, this solution provides Britvic with greater decision-making capacity, enabling the team to increasingly work on activities that generate value. “Britvic’s partnership with SIG and the use of our PAC.TRUST's 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.”
SIG’s modularized PAC.TRUST solution helps SIG customers to have complete visibility of the production chain per package. For Britvic, SIG used two modules of the PAC.TRUST solution, LIMS and Digitalização (Digitization). The solution was installed in 2022 and has already brought several benefits to the company, such as a 40% reduction in quality data analysis time, an increase in the level of information security with data storage redundancy, a 75% reduction in weekly record checking time and 8x faster traceability, providing a digital and integrated operation at the corporate level.
“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 digitalize internal production processes, automating all laboratory analyses at our plants", says Petro Toé, industrial head, Britvic - Brazil.
