Siemens Digital Industries Software today announced that Deoleo, the world’s leading olive oil processing and bottling company, has implemented Opcenter™ software from the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio of software and services to help drive its digital transformation and build its sustainable future.

Founded in 1955, Spain, Deoleo is the world's leading olive oil company selling brands such as Bertolli, Carapelli, Carbonell, Koiple and Figaro. With a heritage of quality and old-world tradition, Deoleo is a champion of prioritizing responsible business using sustainability strategies that protect their farmers, suppliers and the land on which they rely. Deoleo’s vision is to lead the production of olive oil into a more sustainable future.

Starting with building strong supplier partnerships to embed sustainable farming practices, Deoleo works closely with farmers using shared knowledge of olives to develop holistic solutions that promote their economic success while preserving and developing the land. To increase its operational efficiency and improve transparency, the company is also digitally transforming its business processes, from quality control and oil management to its research and development laboratory environment.

“Our sustainability strategy and manufacturing objectives require an effective digital system to manage the enormous number of variables we face along the entire value chain,” says Rafael Pérez de Toro, chief quality officer at Deoleo. “Digitalizing our production using Opcenter has allowed us to be more agile and efficient, gain greater control of resource management, create transparent communication, reduce costs and guarantee traceability. Digitalization is also making our business more sustainable. It is allowing us to reduce our environmental footprint and achieve our goal of zero waste by reducing the use of paper, ink and energy from paper-based processes”

Working with Siemens partner Sothis, Deoleo implemented Opcenter™ Execution Process software to digitalize all warehouse management and quality control processes in a single tool and Opcenter™ RD&L (Research, Development and Laboratory) software as its platform to streamline, optimize and align all formulated product data management. Opcenter RD&L helps Deoleo align product designs and processes with quality and regulatory requirements. Integrating and aligning R&D and manufacturing data and processes drastically speeds up the transfer of final product designs to mainstream manufacturing.
