Production planning for fresh produce.

Fill each order with 100% accuracy, zero fresh produce waste, efficient packing, and value adding processes to maintain traceability and maximize efficiency. 

Choose from a range of fresh produce production planning tools designed to make your operation run at maximum efficiency with least effort.

Optionally choose to use batch packing in farmsoft. Batch level traceability allows recalls both up and down the supply chain, all batch inputs have their traceability details captured in real time, making the Batch Number an easy to use traceability key, one of many that can be used in farmsoft.

Customers can enter their fresh produce orders using the farmsoft Fresh Produce Customer Portal, this gives you up to date access to fresh produce orders, changed, and cancellations to better plan production. 

Monitor batch outputs, and batch waste. If waste exceeds a pre-determined percent, an email alert containing the Batch Recall report is sent to management showing the inputs, outputs, and waste levels.

Easy batch based packing and processing allows ad-hoc and pack to order processes and pre planned scheduled production.

Batches become the central traceability point (and cost center) for all fresh produce/food. Mix multiple varieties of produce, from multiple suppliers and maintain strong traceability at the same time. Analyze batch waste and quality with ease. farmsoft even supports value added processes such as food manufacturing, drying, blending, juicing and more – handy for coffee, hops, and herbs, and processed food manufacturing. You can even mix unlimited batches with other batches to make a “final product” without losing traceability and tracking the cost of finished product.
