In the food industry, challenges such as staffing and ingredient shortages demand not just resilience but innovation. 

Odoo 17‘s suite of operational tools steps up to this challenge, offering robust solutions designed to enhance stability and efficiency in food and beverage production. 

With its enhanced Work Centre Planning view, Odoo 17 allows for a consolidated overview of workloads, enabling better resource allocation and scheduling.


The latest iteration, Odoo 17, ushers in a new era for odoo manufacturing software with a focus on efficiency and security.

It’s not only about being faster; it’s about smartly integrating AI solutions and a complete redesign that simplifies user interaction for both front-end and back-end users.
