Northgate Gonzalez Markets, renowned for its specialty foods and HMR program, faced a significant challenge in their recipe management process. With a high volume of recipes in their fresh operations, Northgate struggled with decentralized systems like MS Excel and MS Word, leading to errors and increased labor hours. They needed a solution that could ensure consistent production, meet California’s strict regulatory requirements, and support their in-store associates throughout their entire chain.
Northgate embarked on a search for a standardized and centralized recipe management approach. After a careful evaluation, they selected Invafresh’s Recipe Management and Production Planning solutions to meet their unique fresh product needs. Invafresh’s software empowered Northgate’s store employees to efficiently manage the conversion of fresh products, selecting the right quantities based on product yield and reducing labor hours. The Recipe Management solution provided centralized control over nutritional and ingredient regulatory requirements, ensuring compliance and data accuracy.
