The dessert industry in Canada and the U.S. is a dynamic one that supports a series of other important sectors, such as milk and dairy production. Frozen dessert manufacturers create delicious foods that millions of families rely on each day. From ice cream and gelatos to frozen cakes and pies, this industry generates billions of dollars in profits each year. Take-home ice cream for household consumers is responsible for a majority of profits. But commercial purchasers, such as restaurants and supermarkets, also account for a large share. According to a recent study by the International Ice Cream Association, vanilla remains the most popular flavour. This is closely followed by mint chocolate chip and cookies ‘n cream.

Using GAO RFID Systems in the Ice Cream & Frozen Dessert Manufacturing Industry
When it comes to managing your company’s logistics, choose a firm with more than a decade of experience in the manufacturing sector. GAO RFID has a proven track record when it comes to helping organizations maximize their profits and business potential.
Tracking Raw Materials
All manufacturing firms invest heavily in equipment and machinery. When it comes to ice cream production, for example, the tools involved are complex. Raw materials must be stored properly. The ingredients are then processed using special apparatus. These may include continuous freezing and inclusion systems, as well as high-tech moulds. GAO offers an Asset Tracking RFID System that monitors this type of equipment every step of the way. Use our RFID Tags and Readers to log pertinent information about each piece, and monitor its whereabouts on the warehouse floor. Our software can also establish schedules, so you know when it’s time for crucial inspections and maintenance jobs.
Meanwhile, restaurants, cafes and grocery stores all rely on frozen dessert manufacturers for stock. But GAO knows that keeping track of product can be a difficult task. The above mentioned Asset Tracking RFID System is versatile enough to manage your inventory as well. From warehouse supplies to final goods, use our technology to track remaining quantities and trigger new orders.
GAO’s WIP Tracking System can be easily combined with any of our other Systems. This product was specifically engineered for the manufacturing industry. It allows organizations to manage their personnel and workflow more effectively. You choose which data our WIP Tracking System will log as employees (and goods) pass each production stage. Our technology will aggregate data, so you can pinpoint time management issues and workflow anomalies.
Control Access to your Facility
All of the products at GAO RFID are all designed with security in mind. Our Access Control RFID System is a crucial component of our manufacturing solutions. It allows management to block off access to restricted areas using GAO’s badging technology. Avoid theft and food tampering by tracking the movement of all personnel. Your security team can also track people beyond the immediate perimeter using our Parking Control RFID System.
