SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Unleashed Software, the innovative cloud based inventory software developer, has expressed its commitment to help food manufacturing start-ups capitalize on the surge in consumer demand for natural, organic and non-GMO food and beverages.
Large food manufacturers are already shifting to accommodate the growing demand from an increasingly health-conscious consumer to omit non-organic, GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) and harmful preservatives and flavorants from their products. The move signifies what has been expected for a while – that eating trends emerging from organics, cold-pressed oils, coconut and paleo, have pushed healthy and natural food products from the sidelines and into the mainstream. In fact, Food Business News estimates that growth in the natural and organic food markets will explode to 14% of total food sales by the year 2020.
The challenge for food manufacturers who deal with managing ingredients with best before dates and multiple packaging formats for different products is the ability to control and optimize critical functionality within their supply chains - most notably by improving traceability through batch tracking, cost tracking and visibility of inventory in real time.
Unleashed Software CEO, Gareth Berry, was quick to point out the advantages a business stands to gain if they manage to meet these challenges. “At the end of the day, what a business needs is a solution designed to remove the time-consuming administrative tasks out of food inventory management so that it can concentrate on increasing productivity and profitability in its food manufacturing operation,” Berry said.
Other food manufacturers already operating Unleashed echoed this sentiment. Iput Putri, General Manager of East Bali Cashews, emphasized the essential role inventory management software plays in helping her business comfortably meet the challenge of producing over 1,000 tons of cashews per year and bringing them to a global retail market, “From purchasing, through production and final sale, Unleashed ticks all the boxes for our food production inventory management,” Putri said.
Integration with sales and accounting systems is another common feature food manufacturers expect from an inventory management solution. “Smart start-ups have realized that integration between systems can save time and money. We’ve integrated with leading sales and accounting systems to help them do just that – save time and money,” Berry added.
