AVEVA software provides Hennig-Olsen with critical visibility and control in its ice cream manufacturing processes

HANNEVIKA, Norway – For more than 90 years, Hennig-Olsen has been bringing tasty ice cream treats to the Nordic region and maintains 48 percent of the region’s market share. Producing approximately 30 million liters of ice cream and frozen desserts each year is not an easy feat, and requires meticulous recipe management and quality-control of ingredients at its factory in Hannevika, Norway

In recent years, the production management team realized that their in-house-developed automation system couldn’t keep pace with the factory’s growing manufacturing requirements.
