Everyone in Switzerland knows them: Napolitains or ‘Les petits chocolats’ by the Buchs-based Chocolat Frey AG, a long-time Autexis client. Available in five flavours, the Napolitains are packaged in transparent plastic bags with an assortment of each type (250 g each). Many customers, however, want their own mix made up of their own favourite varieties. Tastes vary, and this makes it hard for producers to use conventional means to individually compose the right mix of different flavours in the quantity combinations wanted by each individual customer. That’s why, for a long time, only local confectioneries were concerned with this customisable business, catering to the needs of discerning customers.
Chocolate Frey also wants to offer its customers tailor-made shopping: Customised combinations of flavours and quantities of the delicious Napolitains, available anytime, anywhere in the world. Industry 4.0 is the solution to this goal. Moving away from hierarchical control to horizontal communication across the entire supply chain.
