Fonterra is the world’s leading milk processor. With a team of over 16,000 working across the spectrum – from advising farmers on sustainable farming and milk production, to ensuring that Fonterra continues to meet exacting quality standards and delivers dairy nutrition in more than 100 countries around the world.
Fonterra ANZ first implemented Hamilton Grant’s Recipe Developer system to centralise data for bills of materials and nutrition and intolerance information for Fonterra dairy products. Recently Fonterra enhanced the use of the Hamilton Grant system and fully integrated it with their SAP software system.
Simultaneously with the implementation of SAP, Fonterra ANZ explored the opportunities for implementing Recipe Developer in a more powerful way. “We were very familiar with Hamilton Grant’s Recipe Developer system: it was powerful, flexible and a single ‘Source of Truth’. Reporting was a major requirement: SAP may be good at reporting; Recipe Developer is excellent!” continued Ryan Smith.
Within a very short space of time we realised that here was a solution that would support our growth, streamline recipe management at all levels across the organisation, and allow us to produce a wide range of standard and one-off reports, safe in the knowledge that we are working with highly accurate and up-to-date information.”
