De Verspillingsfabriek – a valuable addition to Schouw’s Food Community
18 April 2016
De Verspillingsfabriek, a new organisation working towards waste reduction in the food industry, was started at the initiative of Hutten and is fully focussed on corporate social responsibility. Food company Hutten collects, evaluates, processes and upgrades flows of food waste into food concepts, and required an ERP package that could meet the strict retail and certification requirements in order to support this. In Microsoft Dynamics and the food-specific add-on SI Foodware by Schouw Informatisering, De Verspillingsfabriek has chosen a solid foundation for the future.
This marks the start of a strategic partnership between Schouw Informatisering and De Verspillingsfabriek. 'Schouw will help to drive this amazing initiative forward by providing support in the area of automation. We are keen to invest in this start-up company and expect that this will allow us to contribute towards corporate social responsibility. It is fantastic to get an organisation that is lagging behind other market players up and running. Helping them get to grips with the package has definitely given Schouw something to get stuck into,' commented Managing Director John Schouw of Schouw Informatisering.
SI FOODWARE GUARANTEES HIGH QUALITY
Schouw Informatisering believes that De Verspillingsfabriek will be an extremely valuable addition to the Food Community. In addition, the partnership will allow Schouw to do its bit in order to combat food waste and the significant impact this has on the environment. Corien Poederbach, General Manager at the Verspillingsfabriek: 'De Verspillingsfabriek will work towards IFS certification and in doing so, has set a very high standard with regard to quality. A high-quality ERP system will be critical in order to achieve this and that is what prompted us to select SI Foodware by Schouw Informatisering.'
