About the Client

Leading retail supermarket Morrison’s operate a number of their Farmers Boy fresh food processing facilities across the UK. Their production facilities provide a range of fresh food own brand produce supplied through over 500 Morrison outlets throughout the country.

The manufacturer of food products requires reliable monitoring and reporting systems to enable operational staff to ensure the very highest quality products are produced.
With a solid track record in delivering effective solutions across the food manufacturing industry, Opensoft were approached to deliver a real time production reporting system for their custard production facility located in West Yorkshire.

Project Scope


Productions data was collected from the production plant using a centralised database approach. Opensoft developed a series of web based reporting tools enabling live production data to be readily available. Batch production reports developed by the company automatically reported on the specific production batch number, batch ingredient make up and cooking temperatures, these were presented for convenience via the company’s internal intranet for management and operational personnel alike.
The system ensured that food production data was securely stored for traceability compliance and enabled real-time production data to be quickly accessed to allow production decisions to be taken quickly and efficiently.
