Amaro Foods achieves full traceability, reducing waste and costs

Using ERP to standardize business processes and move away from manual-paper-based practices

Customer Profile

A member of the Libstar Group, Amaro Foods produces and supplies bakery products, including soft rolls, a braai range, croissants, speciality breads, wraps and hot cross buns. Its clients include a leading upmarket retailer as well as a major fast food franchise. With manufacturing facilities in Epping, Montague Gardens and Killarney Gardens in Cape Town, Amaro Foods produces goods of the highest quality, which can be attributed to the skill of its workforce and high quality ingredients.

The Business Challenge

Amaro Foods needed to standardize its business processes across four business units and move away from manual paper-based practices to a fully integrated solution with live, accurate data.

The Solution

In line with the Libstar Group’s decision to standardize on SYSPRO across its operation, Amaro Foods implemented SYSPRO and the TransLution Production & Warehouse Management system to create a seamlessly integrated solution.

The Outcome

In addition to standardizing its business processes across the four business units to ensure they are consistently followed, Amaro Foods now has full traceability on all its products. The company has also enhanced efficiencies, reduced errors and improved turnaround times.

I am confident our product quality will keep improving. We can guarantee that our information is live, close our jobs more frequently and identify variances quickly and easily, thereby reducing both waste and costs.
