​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Dairy.com®  announces the acquisition of Orbis MES, a Dublin, Ireland-based leader in manufacturing execution systems (MES) for the food and beverage industry. The move broadens Dairy.com’s portfolio of software solutions that deliver visibility, efficiency, and traceability across the entire value chain.

Dairy.com CEO Scott Sexton stated “The Orbis MES application suite provides dairy, food, and beverage plants the ability to manage operations in real-time, from anywhere. It is exceptional software that tracks a liquid product's complicated journey from plant intake to finished products. Companies can prevent product loss, evaluate operating performance, improve quality, trace product flows, and monitor utilities consumption." Sexton continued "That's great because all plants are looking to maximize efficiency, food safety, and sustainability while minimizing shrink, waste, and losses. With this acquisition, Dairy.com continues to lead the way to a truly integrated and connected supply chain.”
