CSB Systems, specialist in enterprise resource planning software, is in the process of setting up offices in Central and South America and Australia, according to chief executive officer Ed Wood.
“We were covering these areas from Europe and other parts of the world,” said Wood.
The company recently also moved its US office from Illinois to Atlanta.
In terms of overall trends within Europe, sales engineer Patrick Filz reported that customers were particularly focused on provenance and ingredient origin, amid negotiations over country-of-origin labelling.
There was a significant demand for traceability systems to address the issue, he said. “A major concern is information that is wrong, where a product claims ‘this is beef from the UK’ and it’s from Poland. In the US, the majority of concerns are around food safety.”
