The best salad dressings are those that enhance the overall taste while still allowing the individual salad components to shine. Today many varieties of salad dressings and sauces can be found everywhere which means we can add interesting twists and flavors to our salads and other dishes. Therefore, MF Food has presented its wide unique range of salad dressing that cater to all its customer’s desire.

Freshness is everything when it comes to salads; the crisp and refreshing taste, the vibrant colours of the different ingredients – not to mention the nutritional values - are the qualities that make a salad appealing for your customer, and all of them are quickly lost right along with the freshness of the vegetables. As such, choosing the right packaging for your salads becomes an important choice. By using the right salad containers, you can keep your salads at that perfect level of freshness for quite a length of time.

The spring mix harvesting process has been documented previously on the blog (see post HERE), and in this week’s blog, you get to see the salad processing step, showing what happens to those different types of lettuce varieties after they are harvested. The continuation of this process takes place with the same company, Babé Farms, at their processing facility (Fresh Venture Foods) in Santa Maria, California.
What Lettuce is in Spring Mix?
Although we are accustomed to the name “spring mix”, all companies use their own unique mixture to create their specific mix. For Babé Farms, they create multiple different types of lettuce mixtures. In the picture below, you can see how they dictate what types of lettuce are included into each mix.

5 Ways to Reduce Fresh Produce Inventory Waste Right Now
5 Ways to Reduce Food Waste Right Now
“Sometimes the simplest lessons are the most groundbreaking.” That truth is over 30 years old, but its words still resonate loud and clear.
The goal of today’s post is to share a some surprising, yet logical ways to reduce inventory right now…
The key to reducing inventory is not to buy LESS; the key is to buy LATER. Teams that use this inventory reduction strategy and mindset will free up incredible amounts of capital for their organizations.
THE KEY TO INVENTORY REDUCTION IS NOT TO BUY LESS; THE KEY IS TO BUY LATER.
So as you might guess, the opposite absolutely holds true:
The key to raising service levels is typically not buying MORE; it is buying EARLIER. Perhaps we’ll save that breakdown for another day. Here we’ll explore ‘buying later’ as a strategy to reduce inventory and challenge you to see if there’s opportunity to do so in your organization.
How to reduce inventory in supply chain planning: those first few days
Let’s start with a quick word about your initial days using an advanced supply chain planning solution. Most companies experience a dramatic and welcome inventory reduction when they first move from the world of old buying reports and spreadsheets to a best-in-class inventory planning solution. The advanced forecasts offer dramatic results as expected, and the proper safety stock amounts finally being placed on each item often offer a shocking inventory reduction.
This common benefit is based on the fact that most companies carry too much safety stock on their fast-moving, or smooth ‘A’ items. Once those victories are realized, much more opportunity typically unfolds. Even a strong team with an advanced inventory planning and replenishment solution will continue to see deeper results as they increase their knowledge and be more open to coaching and growth.
When safety stock gets inflated, here’s why


Optimizing Fresh Produce Inventory Management.  oday’s PlanningPosts chat is with long-time veteran in the inventory optimization world, Tracy Coon, along with PlanningPosts evangelist Dan Craddock, on the topic of Optimizing New Item inventory.

Summary: New item forecasting is a troubling area because of its tremendous profit impact. If a company has $50M in inventory, New Items could be $5M or more of that investment. Yet, as Tracy explains, so few demand forecasting teams make optimizing new items a key focus. Download now to learn some strategies for putting a sense of urgency behind improving the performance of your new items across the portfolio.
Todd Intro: I am here with two people who consider themselves lifelong inventory optimization professionals. They love the profession and their careers have been built on educating inventory analysts and inspiring inventory planning and demand forecasting excellence.
Welcome, Tracy Coon and Dan Craddock! It’s great to have you both on the show and I know you want to dig into this topic in a big way. You were both replenishment analysts for wholesale companies prior to becoming education consultants.
Dan & Tracy: brief introductions
Todd: Despite this passion for the profession, you both say that you continue to be frustrated by the lack of success in one key aspect of a company’s inventory:

Fresh produce supply chain planning, demand forecasting, pricing: fruit & vegetable packing
Demand Forecasting,
Inventory Optimization, and
Price Elasticity
Supply chain planning relies heavily on science and algorithms for better demand forecasting and inventory management. This includes forecasting independent customer demand, which changes with customer preferences. It also includes dependent demand that aggregates demand streams at a stocking point upstream to other echelons of the supply chain.
Let’s look at how science and machine learning in Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) is streamlining demand forecasting, inventory optimization and price elasticity to improve long-/short-term planning for complex distribution supply chains.
Why is the Distribution Supply Chain So Complex?
Many factors are contributing to increasing complexity in these forecasts, including outbound customer demand volatility, managing multiple suppliers with long lead times (especially overseas), constrained transportation capacity, and increasing inbound supply line volatility.

Large Assortments
Distributors face even greater complexity in managing their supply chains. Large assortments to serve existing customers has become key to differentiation, but introduces an ever larger assortment with intermittent, lumpy and sparse demand in the “long tail.”

Perishable inventory management software, Reduce perishable inventory waste with FIFO and strict inventory management & monitoring.
Perishable inventory demands attention. Specific inventory-tracking methods help with the job of managing and accounting for perishable inventory. Perishable refers to items that have an expiration date, such food that will go bad if not eaten in a certain amount of time. Single-period inventory control and first-in-first-out, or FIFO, inventory valuation are commonly used to deal with perishable goods.
Much of operations is about being able to match supply to demand. This can be difficult with certain business models that sell perishable goods. As a result, managerial accounting has come up with methods for recognizing inventory for perishable goods. Perishable goods, or goods that may have no value in the next period, can be difficult for managers to track; however, the single-period inventory control system can help to alleviate many issues involved with automatically replenishing inventory when it's down.

Streamlined Fresh Food Operations
Rising costs. Labor shortages. Increasing regulations. Sourcing and certifications. These are just a few of the fresh produce industry challenges you face.
Fresh Produce Processing Software
The Emydex Processing Software was originally designed to handle the complexities of meat processing that is a disassembly production process involving dual units of measure, variable weighted products, as well as a requirement to interface to factory ­floor machinery such as scales, label printers and industrial machinery.

Despite being designed for meat processing, Emydex is also ideally suited to the fresh produce processing industries such as Fresh Produce, Fruit and Vegetables to handle intake, yield reporting and packing and processing.

Similar to Meat, Fish and Food products, Fresh Fruit and Vegetables are perishable products with a short shelf life. They are also inconsistent in their form and can be sold as either fixed or variable weight finished goods, whether in bulk, bags, packs, boxes or pallets.

So whether its fruit or vegetables such as strawberries, mushrooms, broccoli, potatoes or carrots, the Emydex software platform has been designed to capture production data from factory door to door, delivering customers real-time accurate reporting on production, stocks, quality and traceability.

New software solution for fresh produce management
Affinitus has announced the launch of a new software solution for fruit and vegetable growers and distributors, Agrilogik, which has been designed to make the management of fresh produce information straightforward, from quality control data to the latest harvest updates.

The culmination of three years’ work, Agrilogik follows on from the success of Affinitus’ established software systems, Freshware and Chefserve, but with even more of an emphasis on bringing the information required by producers and exporters together into one place.

The system was launched during Affinitus’ appearance at the London Produce Show on 4 June, the first time the company has participated in a trade event as an exhibitor.

Specifically designed for the technical departments of fresh produce companies, Agrilogik is aimed at improving the management of information necessary when handling fresh produce, such as quality assurance and the documentation kept alongside this, and quality control.

The software further includes the latest labour force management regulations as required by law, and has been designed for use with field-based handheld devices – such as tablets – that can be used to capture up-to-date harvest information.

This means, said Affinitus managing director Paul Hardy, that growers can benefit from access to accurate crop and yield forecasts each season, ensuring accurate planning and in the process helping avoid unnecessary delays or order duplications – vital when meeting retailer demands.

Singapore fresh produce distributor saves thousands with new ERP software
Oracle NetSuite, a provider of cloud-based financials / ERP, HR, Professional Services Automation (PSA) and omnichannel commerce software suites, announced today that SunMoon Food Company Limited (SunMoon), a global distributor of fruit and food products, has deployed NetSuite OneWorld.



SunMoon distributes a wide range of fresh and sustainable produce, from frozen durians to ready-to-eat sweet corn and deployed NetSuite OneWorld to support its global growth, enabling increased overall productivity and efficiency. In just five months, NetSuite OneWorld facilitated 900 transactions, having saved SunMoon 150 hours and an estimated S$20,000 ($14,680 USD).



Live in April 2017, SunMoon is leveraging OneWorld for financials, inventory and order management, financial consolidation across three subsidiaries in China, Indonesia, and the US, and multicurrency transactions in 11 different currencies – Australian, Canadian, Hong Kong, Singapore and US Dollar, Euro, Indonesian Rupiah, Malaysian Ringgit, Renminbi and Thai Baht. It also supports, English, Chinese, and Bahasa Malay.

Prior to deploying NetSuite OneWorld, SunMoon primarily used emails to correspond with its farmers, suppliers and customers for stock taking, order management, invoicing and billing. This required significant manual coordination, making it extremely difficult to track orders and compare quotes, greatly impacting productivity and the company’s growth potential.



NetSuite OneWorld enables SunMoon’s suppliers to enter expiry dates, packaging sizes and other details from any internet-connected device into the cloud-based system. Based on this information, SunMoon can more easily create a quote for its customers, which they can accept with just one click. NetSuite OneWorld then automatically sends a PO to farmers and generates an invoice once the order has been fulfilled.

“ERP software from fresh produce branch instead of IT”
The Irish company Keelings has a 90-year history in the cultivation and trade of fruit and vegetables. Based on the wishes the company had to optimise and automate their business processes, the software branch Keelings Solutions was established five years ago.


Caroline Keeling and Rick Rebergen

Rick Rebergen, who has 18 years of experience in the marketing and sales of fresh produce software, has been appointed Business Improvement Manager to transfer his knowledge and that of Keelings to the rest of the market, initially focusing on the Benelux and Germany. “The company Keelings trades in 42 countries, and therefore knows which requirements good software should meet. The software is built based on exact demands and wishes from the fresh produce branch, and not from an IT point of view. That makes this package unique!”

“Keelings Solutions’ approach is also renewing. With our IBR (Initial Business Revue) tool, we can review the company's internal organisation on request, and we can analysis this by listing the weak points combined with recommendations to improve these. This leads to specific recommendations to using the software, which we clearly express in an amount to reach an ROI (Return on Investment). There are a number of critical process indicators that can differ per company and per country, and that way, we can approach the market in the most professional manner possible. That is an absolute advantage in this industry,” Rick says.

Proactive instead of reactive
“Another definite advantage is that we can make predictions in our system. That's not integrated now in current ERP software systems. Much is analysed afterwards now, but the software from Keelings Solutions is proactive rather than reactive. For example, results can be decided and guarded in advance, instead of seeing the result afterwards. After all, it’s all about profitability,” Rick says. “This ERP package, called Keelings Business Solutions (KBS) is a complete solution, and can therefore be used by importers, exporters, wholesalers, production (sorting and packing) and storage and transfer companies. In the Netherlands, early adapters like Roveg and Jaguar are already using the software from Keelings Solutions.”

“The experience of Keelings in cultivation, processing and trade can be seen in the software. We work out the practices of fresh produce companies with them, work that into an appropriate ERP system. Efficiency and flexibility in KBS are of an unprecedented level. Keelings has worked for years to bring automation to the highest possible level within their own company, and now wants to share that with the market. For that, we offer a guaranteed implementation throughput time of three months, and we can support companies structurally during the change that’ll occur during the implementation of other ERP software. We offer a completely standardised solution, but the product will never be finished because the market is continually changing. But those changes will eventually also lead to improved software,” Rick says.

“Our Irish parent organisation has an amazing history, and has 2,100 employees nowadays. We would like to invite interested people to experience the 'Keelings Experience' in Dublin, where we’d like to show our 90-year industry experience in growing, processing, logistics, quality control, production (24x7), WMS, global trade and software. I think it’s a major challenge to share my experience with the organisation, and I’m completely driven to make this a success. I am therefore convinced that we’ll further build the automation software via the Benelux and Germany to a global fresh produce sector,” the Business Improvement Manager concludes.
