Dairy Best Victoria chooses UnityF8 to improve production control and visibility

Sanderson, the publicly-owned provider of software for the food and drink industry, has won a contract to supply its UnityF8 solution to whole milk powder blender Dairy Best Victoria.

Dairy Best Victoria, based in Truganina, Victoria, contract blends specified Full Cream Milk Powder and produce it to the required specifications for the customer.

Further to the restructuring of the business, manufacturer Dairy Best now focuses on contract manufacture. After using a combination of Navision and Excel spreadsheets, Dairy Best were looking for a system that would improve inventory control and production planning.
UnityF8 will meet the needs of Dairy Best and provide the company with substantial long and short term benefits. System-driven traceability and Quality Control will ensure that Dairy Best’s business processes are maintained at the highest standard.

The Sanderson system will allow Dairy Best to experience a number of efficiencies that will be gained from using UnityF8. These include improved inventory control and visibility that will prove crucial when meeting customer orders. The Formulation Planning will also save the same amount of hours of a part time employee.

Eric Zammit, Director at Dairy Best Victoria, explains:
‘We looked at other systems but Sanderson was able to offer the best fit for our specialist business and a fixed price contract. The formulation planning function is expected to save around 33 hours a week.’

Mark Lofthouse, Sales Manager at Sanderson, said:
‘We look forward to seeing Dairy Best Victoria benefit from the information and functionality UnityF8 offers.’
