Innovation

Since innovation and sustainability are a matter of course for Beyers, we are constantly placing innovative products on the market. Naturally, we do this in a socially responsible way.

 

Investing in cutting-edge technology

We apply the B.A.T. principle to our investments. B.A.T. stands for Best Available Technology.

In recent years, our investments have amounted to 2 million Euros per year.

Some salient facts:

  • Beyers installed a vacuum packing machine as early as the 1960s and as such was one of the very first companies to do so.
  • We were the first company to collaborate with Italian machine suppliers.
  • We were also one of the first to produce coffee pads.
  •  In 2010, we installed a fully automatic pads line and we built a new warehouse with mobile shelving, thus making the best use of the space.
  • In 2011, we invested in a second fully automatic pads line.
  • In June 2012, we launched an ambitious ERP project with the aim of integrating and streamlining our administrative, planning and logistic processes. In co-operation with IT service provider Delaware Consulting, we are implementing FAST-FoodTM – a complete package based on SAP Business All-in-one. The advantages: no more double data entry, less chance of errors and a correct, real-time version of all figures every time. 
  • Installation of a state-of-the-art high efficiency roaster with pre-heating and heat recovery.
