The Food Industry trusts Wherefour

Ideal for food manufacturers

Food manufacturers face challenges in managing production needs due to diverse ingredients. Traditional systems fall short for modern food production, requiring robust manufacturing and ingredient tracking. Wherefour's start-to-finish traceability™ prevents contaminated products from reaching the market.

Wherefour's software supports private-label, co-packing, or in-house beverage production. It manages R&D, production, inventory, quality, costing, BRC/SQF traceability, FDA compliance, state reporting, planning, scheduling, and distribution.

Wherefour's flexible production module lets you design a custom workflow for product production or packaging that matches the process you are already doing. Overhead, like labor or unexpected costs for a specific production run, can also be added and included in COGS automatically.

Unlike many traditional ERPs, Wherefour's platform lets you create variable results from each batch, or even run a disassembly process (perfect for meat or produce processing) where something is purchased and broken into new ingredients that are then used in other products.

Everything you need, in one system.

Food Inventory Control

Custom (and automatic) lot code, barcode or serial number sequences that incorporate batch date, expiration date, julian date, facility, location, etc.

Automatically pull ingredients and supplies via FIFO, FEFO, LIFO or on a per-batch need.

Print GS1, Code 128 or Code 93 barcodes for product, inventory, package or pallet labels.

Automatic alerts for expiring products or ingredients reaching low levels.

Wherefour has everything we need and is affordable. I can travel and still know what is going on. The system automatically lets me know if I need to place an inventory order, and I don’t have to check it manually.
