Tampa, FL (PRWEB) May 10, 2012
Applied Data Corporation (ADC), a leading provider of fresh item management (FIM), recipe management and scales management software to the grocery retail and food service industries, announces that Brookshire Grocery Company, a 150+ store chain based in Tyler, Texas, has selected and implemented NutriGen, ADC’s recipe management software.
Brookshire Grocery Company operates three banners: Brookshire, Super 1 Foods, and FRESH by Brookshire. Their need for a FIM system arose when they decided to open FRESH by Brookshire, a concept store that focuses on natural, organic, chef prepared food options. When FRESH by Brookshire opened in March 2011, they had over 2,500 recipes for in-store produced fresh product.
“The FRESH concept emphasizes the fresh side of the business, but with over 2,500 recipes planned to open the doors, we realized that we needed a centralized software solution to standardize our recipe database,” said John D’Anna, Senior Vice President - Chief Information Officer at Brookshire Grocery Company. “Once we implemented NutriGen in our Brookshire’s stores, we were given great visibility to our actual recipe cost, which enabled us to quickly address any margin concerns. This project has exceeded our estimated ROI by over 30%.”
NutriGen derives the true cost of prepared foods, including packaging and labor costs. NutriGen also manages all of the nutritional facts of the recipe’s ingredients and generates saleable item nutritional, allergen and ingredient information for labeling.
“NutriGen allows Brookshire’s to standardize their large recipe database and helps ensure consistent, high-quality yet profitable prepared foods by rendering interactive, electronic recipes in their stores,” stated Steve Loveridge, ADC’s CEO. “Additionally, NutriGen allows Brookshire’s to centrally change recipes in the event of a recall or ingredient substitution and quickly disseminate revised food-safety information to their store labeling scales and printers.”
NutriGen is one of three software systems that comprise InterStore.Net, ADC’s integrated fresh item management software suite. The other two systems are: InterScale Scales Manager, which hosts data to and from barcode labeling scales in the fresh food departments, and the P-Cubed Production Manager, which automates, manages and tracks production in the fresh departments of grocery stores.
