Fresh produce suppliers Manor Fresh has teamed up with management software company KisanHub to help minimise supply chain waste.
The potato and vegetable specialists said the move was an “important step” towards improving sustainability, increasing transparency, and optimise resources in their supply chain.
KisanHub’s data-driven Enterprise Platform allows Manor Fresh to capture, analyse and share grower data.
Chris Goodliff, senior technical manager at Manor Fresh, said: “For Manor Fresh, this project is about optimisation of our resources. We review a lot more produce than we buy, due to our customers’ premium quality standards, and KisanHub’s Enterprise Platform tool lets us capture data from across that wide selection of growers and share it with our customers.
“With the central data source that the platform provides, we will now be able to manipulate and analyse data quickly.”
Dr Sachin Shende, chief executive of KisanHub, said: “Manor Fresh are a forward-thinking organisation and they are supplying produce to some of the UK’s highest quality retailers who operate selective produce criteria. It was clear to us from very early on in our conversations that our platform will allow Manor Fresh to become even better at what they do and illustrate to their customers that they are the best in the industry.
“We are excited that our technology will be helping Manor Fresh to meet their quality, quantity and time-frame benchmarks, while also addressing crucial sustainability standards by minimising wastage and optimising growing conditions.”
