OAL Connected secure £10,000 grant from Agri-Tech Growth
We are pleased to announce we have been granted a £10,000 grant from Eastern Agri-Tech Growth to continue our work into streamlining data recording in the food and drink industry. The initiative will further develop a system that will simultaneously collate the print information from several different makes of check-weighers on food production lines, and store this information in a central database.
"This project seeks to make data collection more accurate and efficient by compiling data from food production lines into one central location - enabling OAL's customers to comply with food regulations more easily.”
Mark Reeve, Chairman of the Eastern Agri-Tech Growth Initiative and the Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough LEP
With a reputation for delivering innovative solutions to food process design and software engineering problems, this project will further utilise our skills and knowledge in order to improve the food industry. The grant will be specifically used to develop OAL Connected, a suite of software products to deliver food safety, traceability, secure packaging and date codes.
"The Agri-Tech grant will enable important developments such that OAL can continue to support our customers in meeting the increasing requirements for food product, due to diligence and compliance that manufacturers must meet."
Jake Norman, Sales and Marketing Manager at OAL
