No industry is more competitive or moves faster than the food industry. Bringing a new line of products to market can easily cost a hundred million dollars or more in research, development, capital expenditures, and advertising. If you are too late, or your products are not of high quality, then you can lose your entire investment in a year. But success can bring very handsome rewards that last for decades. For established products, there is a relentless push from the marketplace for lower cost and higher quality, and from regulatory bodies for improved traceability and documentation.
IPACT has been successfully meeting these challenges for some of the largest food companies in the world for over 20 years. With literally hundreds of food projects accomplished, areas in which we have delivered solutions include:
