The Fresh Produce Industry Is Challenging.
Make It Easier.
What Makes the Fresh Produce and Perishable Foods Sector So Complex?
Ask anyone working with fresh produce and they’ll tell you: the constant concern of looming expiration dates, possible surpluses or shortages and ever-changing regulations can make this industry extremely difficult to navigate.
Of course, being nimble is vital; you need actionable insights derived from your data to empower you to act with agility, increase efficiency and achieve results.
From matching your supply to meet consumer demand and ensuring compliance with health standards to managing the traceability of all your products, the list of crucial considerations for any fresh produce business is long.
You also need the tools to properly manage consignments, the associated financials and the many partners you work with in your supply chain.
You don’t just need an ERP solution that accommodates the fresh produce industry—you need one that’s been created around it. One that gives you control from farm to table and allows you to maximise efficiency while still prioritising food safety.
