Dynamic choice for Vestey

Posted on 23 Aug 2010 by The Manufacturer

Meat import specialists Vestey Foods has announced a deal with Columbus IT to provide it with Microsoft Dynamics as its new ERP solution.

The Vestey Foods Group comprises thirteen food companies with a combined turnover of £500m, specialising in the import, storage and distribution of a wide variety of foodstuffs from global suppliers into local market places.

Nick Reynolds, financial controller at the Vestey, says: “To assist our rapid growth we needed to consolidate our disparate business systems from the UK and across the group into a best practice ERP solution. Many of our processes are still manual which is hindering our expansion plans”.
Vestey Foods have initially purchased 30 users of Microsoft Dynamics which includes functionality around finance, sales, purchasing, stock and warehousing.

“This is just the beginning of a much wider roll out which will help us to improve efficiencies across the group, reduce our costs, gain greater insight into our business and ultimately manage our growth”

He said Columbus IT was chosen because they were recommended as the experts in the food and drink sector.
