Foster Farms Dairy has selected the HighJump warehouse management system (WMS) to optimize its operations. The company processes a variety of dairy products at three plants and distributes throughout northern and central California from multiple branch facilities. In the project’s first wave, the HighJump WMS will be implemented in the company’s three manufacturing locations and one of its distribution centers.
The dairy recently began a search for a WMS as part of its commitment to continuous process improvement and satisfaction of customer quality and service needs.
Lon Nebiolini, technology and systems director with Foster Farms Dairy, said “We selected HighJump Software because of its strong reputation in the marketplace, successful applications in the food and beverage industries, and its full suite of supply chain execution solutions, which Foster Farms Dairy plans to take advantage of in the future. Another important factor was HighJump Software’s adaptable architecture, which will maximize flexibility with respect to changing business requirements without excessive costs or business disruption.”
Food and beverage manufacturers face many challenges including strict regulatory guidelines, multiple distribution channels, and a short freshness window. The HighJump WMS will enable Foster Foods Dairy to satisfy these demands while achieving benefits such as increased productivity, increased accuracy, and end-to-end visibility. The company plans to utilize the HighJump WMS to provide real-time visibility to all of its inventories, including finished goods, packaging, and ingredients. Additionally, the system will provide full lot track and trace capabilities in near real-time and help the company reduce operational expenses.
Foster Farms Dairy is family-owned and has been operating in California since 1941. Producer of a full line of dairy products including milk, cottage cheese, sour cream, ice cream, milk powder, and butter, the dairy remains committed to animal welfare and environmental sustainability.
