Vietnam has a lot of potential for developing the agricultural product processing industry, food quality, food and potential market access. However, any export market has its own barriers, forcing businesses to make efforts to overcome. Understanding this, many businesses have taken steps to improve the backlog problems of their companies and corporations, specifically the application of digital transformation. In particular, it is impossible not to mention the food industry.

For the manufacturing industry in general and food processing in particular,  input materials, production line management, product quality and inventory are all difficult problems . Just a small mistake such as a few wrong packages in the shipment or moisture deviation during the logistics is enough for the manufacturer to fail to meet the customer’s target and lose hundreds of billions of dong in the immediate future as well as its reputation. Castle.

In the past, when the production volume was small, manual management was relatively easy. However, with the current dizzying increase in market demand as well as the development of science and technology from competitors in the industry, businesses must change to not lag behind.

Moreover, besides the achievements of the agricultural product processing industry, the development of the food processing industry is still quite modest compared to its potential. Specifically, the enterprise’s machinery, equipment and technological lines have been invested for a long time and lack many convenient features. The machines are invested asynchronously, so the data is not uniform; large cost of investment, improvement and technical upgrade for the current equipment and technology system; risks in choosing inappropriate equipment and technology. Moreover, businesses do not have a clear process, operating according to experience, habits and handling cases. Software investment costs are a barrier for small businesses, and enterprise data is out of sync.
