Deoleo teams up with Siemens to make operations slick

Deoleo, the Spain-based 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.

Founded in 1955 in Madrid, Deoleo is a global olive oil processing company and the world’s largest bottler of olive oil products, selling brands such as Bertolli, Carapelli, Carbonell, Koiple and Figaro.

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. 

“Digitalising 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,” said Pérez de Toro.

He said digitalisation is also making our business more sustainable. It is allowing Deoleo to reduce their environmental footprint and achieve their 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 digitalise 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, optimise 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.

Siemens Digital Industries Software helps organisations of all sizes digitally transform using software, hardware and services from the Siemens Xcelerator business platform.
