Omron has taken a step towards helping the planet become more sustainable by joining the Save Food initiative as an official member. Mr Hiro Usui, CEO of Omron Europe B.V., says: “Omron is proud to have made a personal commitment against food waste by joining the Save Food initiative as an active member. Global food losses continue to be one of the most urgent problems that the international community faces. Omron is eager to get involved and help.”
Since it was founded, Omron has been working to make life better for people all over the world. The Save Food initiative provides Omron with an opportunity to achieve their goal of fixing social problems using technology that helps reduce waste. To help reduce waste during production, Omron provides products that include inline inspection of product quality and quality control of packaging material and packaging, verification of printed label with expiry and manufacturing data (characters, barcode and data matrix code) and traceability of individual packaging and product across all production steps. Many of the company’s vision systems allow manufacturers to release products that are safe and without hidden defects which can affect the shelf life of the products. Also, the speed and simplicity of Omron control systems ensure that manufacturers can quickly pack fresh products, minimising packaging errors.
