Software for Food Industries

The core uses of Formpak Software are for recipe development and compliance management. Formpak also includes tools for managing product life cycle, projects and the product library. Formpak offers efficient ways to manage regulatory affairs, including customisable compliance checks, document authoring, and managing document revision and supply.

Product development

Formpak's formulation tools include rapid ingredient selection, creation history, easy handling of multi-level recipes and side by side composition view. We have additional tools, especially relevant for recipe and ingredient processes:

During development, you can quickly assess the technical and legislative status of a product and determine compliance - including rules based on customer requirements and calculated in respect of customer, country, application and dosage.

Using the flexible project system you can customise and build your own project templates to include relevant information capture, tasks, workflow and status, allowing real time collaboration for the whole product development team.

Formpak is also used to manage product libraries, using a combination of calculated properties and assigned attributes. Our Find Matching Items search allows you to easily make complex queries to find relevant items in your library, and even check the compliance status for specific customers and applications.

Food technical and regulatory requirements

Ingredient information such as nutritional and allergens can be stored at recipe, ingredient and/or component level. Formpak has configurable properties, so you can add new properties which are relevant to your business directly in the software. In most cases ingredient data is used to calculate values for recipes, e.g. nutritional, flavour and additive status. With scheduled ongoing calculations, the status of your recipes can always be kept up to date.

Formpak has powerful tools to help calculate and assess technical and regulatory requirements including:

With Formpak you can produce, supply and manage documents such as:

Using Formpak for document authoring and management gives you full traceability and control, enabling you to see which customers had what documents and also manage when documents are revised and re-issued.

Formpak gives you confidence in ingredient and recipe status, transparency of information received and supplied and control on future information supply.
