Grampian Country Food Group plans to centralise its chicken business and make better use of IT systems to improve the communications throughout its supply chain -- from suppliers to retail customers.

The company has selected QAD to upgrade the enterprise resource planning (ERP) system used in its integrated chicken business. It is using QAD's MFG/PRO eB2, EDI Ecommerce and Desktop 2 at nine sites across the UK. The system, which went live in January this year, supports 150 concurrent users.

"Our vision for Grampian Country Food Group is to move toward a centralised structure which will allow us to preserve our position," says divisional IT manager Howard Dearling.

Longer term, Grampian plans to improve communications with its extended supply chain through e-business. As part of this it aims to link its suppliers and customers into its planning and forecasting.

l Frozen food producer KK Fine Foods has just purchased Ross Systems' iRenaissance suite to support its UK warehousing, planning and manufacturing operations.
