Infor®, the industry cloud company, has announced that HAK, a Dutch producer of vegetables and legumes, is starting to implement Infor’s CloudSuite Food & Beverage to make its business processes more efficient.

The implementation of Infor CloudSuite Food & Beverage fits HAK’s growth goals. With more efficient business processes, the company will be better able to respond to changing situations in the market. HAK stands for sustainability; the company strives to become 100% organic for all its local vegetables and legumes, while keeping it affordable for consumers. This requires greater efficiency throughout the production chain. Also in terms of traceability, or as HAK calls it, “from soil to mouth”, the new enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution offers the ability to manage this even better. All in all, Infor CloudSuite Food & Beverage will contribute to HAK’s growth strategy.

The main goal of deploying Infor’s industry specific CloudSuite is to increase efficiency in supply chain planning and warehouse management. A lot is still done manually there. The entire organisation is involved in the implementation. The operational flows are the most important, but every discipline will eventually start working with the system.

Developments in the food industry are occurring at an increasingly rapid pace. In order to be well prepared for the future and to meet its growth objectives, HAK chose Infor CloudSuite Food & Beverage, a solution developed specifically for food producers and available as an always up-to-date cloud service that is constantly updated with new features and innovations. This allows HAK to accelerate the company’s development and innovation.

“Infor’s approach fits in well with the way in which HAK operates,” says Maikel Jongenelis, CFO at HAK. “More than 85 per cent of our processes that we want to address are included as standard processes in the Infor solution, especially in the areas of supply chain planning and warehouse management. So, little work needs to be done. In addition, we work with a quality information system that is known to Infor and has also been included in previous implementations at other Infor customers. So, there is also easy integration there.”

“HAK is a wonderful Dutch food producer,” said Marcel Koks, Industry & Solution Strategy Director for Food & Beverages at Infor. “The company was looking for an industry-specific solution that meets its business objectives, and also fits its company culture. They have found a match for both in Infor CloudSuite Food & Beverage.”

Infor CloudSuite Food & Beverage makes it possible to drive efficiencies in food manufacturers’ supply chains and bring new products to market faster. The platform provides ERP solutions for many major food industry segments, including bakery, beverage, dairy, meat and poultry, prepared and refrigerated products, and food ingredients.
