Squirro and Bühler Help to Improve Food Safety and Reduce Food Wastage


Using unstructured data to create an app that strengthens awareness and improves safety

An estimated 30% of the world’s food is lost or wasted. Improving this and ensuring that every human being has access to healthy food is a key objective for Squirro’s client, Bühler.

Bühler, the manufacturer, whose equipment produces food that feeds two billion people, has access to incredibly vast amounts of internal and external data. They understood that this data contains valuable insights about food on a global level. Using this data, they wanted a solution that gave accurate and real-time access to worldwide food safety information in one place.

The key to achieving this was Squirro’s Augmented Intelligence platform, which was used to create, a powerful food safety information and alerting solution. This application monitors hundreds of data sources – structured and unstructured – around the world to provide accurate and real-time food safety information on a local and global level.

Used by anyone within the food industry, including distribution, supply, manufacturing, retail, procurement, production and more, helps users better understand what risks might impact their business and their lives.
