Bega Cheese selects Software AG to provide IoT dairy supply chain solution

Software AG announced it has been selected by Bega Cheese to provide its Cumulocity IoT solution to Bega Cheese to launch a new IoT service linking the company’s farmer suppliers, milk transport and storage, and processing facilities.

According to Adel Salman, GM Supply Chain at Bega Cheese, the company knew that IoT could be an excellent solution, especially with the use of real-time data for both inbound and outbound activities in the company’s supply chain.

“Swinburne University of Technology with its Internet of Things Lab and Industry 4.0 initiatives as well as its research partnership with Software AG, we hope to be able to increase our growth across higher-value premium products thus enhancing the competitiveness for both Bega and our suppliers,” said Salman.

“With Cumulocity, Bega Cheese will have real-time data and insights which will allow it to enhance its supply chain productivity and competitiveness with just-in-time milk pickup and processing requirements on a large scale,” said Tony Drewitt, Head of IoT ANZ, Software AG.

While Swinburne University will also develop and build unique new IoT sensors specifically for Bega Cheese, this project is expected to run for a period of 12 to 18 months.
