Digitalizing olive oil production

In today's landscape, Salov is among the largest companies in the olive oil sector with a consolidated turnover of over €491 million and 120 million liters sold in 2022.

Founded in 1919, the Group is present on the Italian market with the famous Sagra brand and with the Filippo Berio brand, which has over 150 years of life and is present in over 75 countries worldwide with leadership positions in the United States, United Kingdom, Belgium, Switzerland, Hong Kong and many other markets.
With 5 subsidiaries, 2 sales offices and 1 branch, for a total of 314 employees, among the Group's founding pillars we find a strong attention to product quality along the entire supply chain and on sustainability, which is at the heart of many corporate projects.

The need to quickly respond to the ever-changing reality in which we live led the Group to find an answer in the digitalization of its factory and rationalization of its supply chain processes, starting from the production site located in Tuscany in Massarosa, near Lucca.

Salov: a Digital Twin for the finished goods factory

"The answer came with the Omnia project, a pivotal moment in the digital transformation of Salov" explains Luca Greco, Salov CIO, "with the implementation of new systems to support production processes such as production planning and scheduling, and plant maintenance".

Following the first analysis phase that led to the drafting of a Business Blue Print document, we implemented a new Production Management System based on ComplEte Schedulator ® and Wonderware ® MES platform.

In parallel to these market platforms, Engineering provided two proprietary solutions for Energy Consumption Monitoring (EMS) and Maintenance Management (CMMS). This was made possible through the implementation of the Digital Twin of the Finished Goods Factory, by implementing concentrator PLCs make the signals available in the 5 production lines and the 55 machines in the perimeter visible to the MES, thus automating both production processes and reporting.

The project has led to an improvement in the user experience, a faster data sharing, as well as an improvement in the work organization, placing the "human factor" at the center.
