Switzerland based Tetra Pak and Canadian firm Poka have launched a new strategic collaboration that brings together the expertise, technology, and best practices of Tetra Pak, a leader in the food & beverage packaging industry, with the power of Poka, the most comprehensive connected factory worker platform.
This collaboration will empower workers in food production with the tools and training needed to accelerate zero waste processes in food manufacturing plants. It’s the first global and scalable connected workforce service that Tetra Pak will roll out as part of its new training and support solution.
According to the UN Sustainable Development Goal 12, a range of entry points are required for promoting responsible consumption and production, and this can be achieved by producing more with less, increasing resource efficiency and promoting sustainable practices.
Poka has helped manufacturers reduce equipment downtime by 5.9 per cent, increase in worker productivity by 18 per cent and decrease quality issues by 64 per cent. By equipping front line staff with the most up to date information they need to make fast decisions, manufacturers can maintain high standards of quality and food safety whilst minimising waste in the form of product, time, or cost.
