Many manufacturing companies, and especially food and beverage manufacturers, have to implement traceability to stay compliant with government regulations (GMP, HACCP, etc.) These regulation require that a company has an accurate records on all product batches they receive and produce, that could be accessed fast and be used to issue a recall if necessary.
The problem with maintaining traceability, especially for the small manufacturers, is the large amount of paperwork it produces. If done manually, it takes a lot of employees time, can quickly grow to a mountain of notes or spreadsheets, and it is hard to find required information anyways.
