Ingredients manufacturer orders multi-site UnityF8 roll out

The Freddy Hirsch Group, the largest food ingredients manufacturer on the African continent, is to roll out its UnityF8 system to subsidiary businesses in Zambia, Botswana, Namibia, Nigeria and Ghana.

A Sanderson customer since 2000, Freddy Hirsch is a major user of UnityF8 – for example using Factory Automation for control of recipe weighing, multiple dispensing systems and scheduling.

The Sanderson solution extension will be configured to facilitate ‘cash & carry’ operations and point of sale (POS), with products and prices managed by head office and downloaded to the relevant country.

The project will allow the Freddy Hirsch Group to operate a common IT platform across its business, to achieve greater efficiencies and support further growth.
