Food and Food Service

This highly competitive sector covers myriad food-related activities from import and manufacture, processing and preparation to wholesale and retail supply. The food service sector specialises in ingredients, prepared foods and catering supplies for schools, hospitals, leisure outlets, catering and licensed trades. Naturally the business revolves around key issues like product and service quality, short lead times and consistent quality excellence. It invests constantly in supply chain improvement to meet customer demand for maximum order fulfilment.

WMS systems used in this sector must embody the same ideals and fully support industry methods. They must maintain integrity of rotation and traceability, facilitate minimum order process times, offer flexible planning and assembly, and deploy the most dynamic picking and delivery technologies available. Value added services like testing, quality monitoring, proving and packing add to the systems requirement mix.
