This is the first global and scalable connected workforce service that Tetra Pak will rollout 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%, increase in worker productivity by 18% and decrease quality issues by 64%. 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 while minimising waste in the form of product, time, or cost. 
 
“This collaboration is part and parcel of our journey to provide access to safe food and to do that in a sustainable way, even in our own production, factory floor processes using the resources and technologies available to us,” explained Roberto Franchitti, executive vice president, services & quality?at?Tetra Pak.
