Categories allow you to group products, materials, suppliers, and other master data with common criteria.
An example for using the category feature would be:
You purchase dehydrated milk powder from your dairy suppliers. This milk is added to several finished products including coffee products, and products containing infant formula. The composition of the milk powder from your suppliers is the same, but when used in the infant formula it must be regulated to a higher standard in order to comply with regulations. Therefore, milk powder that will be added to infant formula will be categorized in Safefood 360° to ensure that such products can be easily identified and if required additional risk assessment performed.
In this case a Safefood 360° user might create a category called “Infant Formula”, and associate this milk powder that was regulated to a higher standard with the products containing “Infant Formula”.
The Category Selector is used to associate an entity with a relevant category.
