RONKONKOMA, N.Y.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--VAI, a leading provider of ERP software, today announced that Love & Quiches, a global dessert wholesaler, is streamlining manufacturing processes and improving overall food safety controls with its Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, VAI S2K Enterprise. Headquartered in Freeport, NY, Love & Quiches maintains a customer roster of leading food service operators, retailers and distributors, many of whom share 25+ year relationships with the dessert wholesaler.
“With VAI S2K Enterprise, we are creating a transaction file based on items and lot information to produce comprehensive and highly successful reports for auditors, and the software was integral to the food safety audit we passed in June 2013.”
With food safety and full traceability as top priorities for Love & Quiches, the company sought an ERP solution to automate and integrate its core business functions. The company needed to optimize its manufacturing processes, ensure food safety and full traceability on all of its products, and produce comprehensive reports for auditors. In its evaluation of ERP solutions, Love & Quiches selected VAI S2K Enterprise.
“All of our items are lot controlled—from the receipt of raw materials, to the completion and storing of our finished products with full lot identification on shipments—so we needed a solution that not only fit our complex environment, but also one that ensured the quality and safety of our products as well,” said Corey Aronin, CFO at Love & Quiches. “With VAI S2K Enterprise, we are creating a transaction file based on items and lot information to produce comprehensive and highly successful reports for auditors, and the software was integral to the food safety audit we passed in June 2013.”
S2K Enterprise is enabling Love & Quiches to identify manufacturing processes using raw material and intermediary item codes with lot control designation in order to locate all products and to determine which ingredients were used and when. As a result, full traceability is maintained for all Love & Quiches products and proper training is ensured on the production floor at all times. S2K Enterprise integrates seamlessly with the technical modules used by Love & Quiches, including inventory management, product quality, and material requirement planning. In June 2013, these optimizations helped the company pass a rigorous third-party food safety audit of its lot control systems.
“VAI is excited to provide Love & Quiches with a solution that optimizes its manufacturing processes, and ensures the quality and safety of food,” said Gary Barter, VAI Project Manager. “With National Food Safety Month this month, Love & Quiches’ commitment to food safety should be replicated throughout the industry and we’re proud of the role VAI’s S2K Enterprise played in supporting them in a highly successful third-party audit.”
