Moulton Bulb, one of the UK’s largest suppliers of onions, garlic and shallots, has installed LINKFRESH supply chain software to aid its growth strategy and simplify its production process.

The company, which supplies more than 1,700 tonnes of onions each week to UK retailers, turned to LINKFRESH to provide an integrated IT solution that would streamline its entire process to quicken traceability, produce more in-depth reports, modernise its produce booking systems and increase mobile visibility of factory performance.

Running on the Microsoft Dynamics® platform, LINKFRESH ERP informs all operational aspects of Moulton Bulb including finance, planning and forecasting, live inventory management, packing centre management, warehouse operations, delivery schedules and logistics. The solution also provides state-of-the-art mobility applications for stock management, quality control, intake, picking, dispatch and label printing, as well as a touch screen user interface.

Robert Oldershaw Jr, director of Moulton Bulb, said: “LINKFRESH has brought everything together in our business. Now we have live, real-time stock location information, which has solved stock rotation issues, reduced waste and greatly assisted stock control.

“I now feel we are more professional and robust in our approach and our interaction with suppliers and customers and we’ve actually got to know our own business a lot better.”
