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. To complicate matters more, grower accounting is confusing and pricing produce requires more than a simple algorithm.

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.

Expiration tracking is particularly crucial for fresh produce companies, as the perishable nature of the products requires careful monitoring to minimize waste and ensure quality and safety for consumers.

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.

Derive actionable insights from your data in real-time; act with agility while increasing efficiency and achieving results with purpose-built ERP software from Aptean. Reach out to our team of experts today.
