Whole Foods to Deploy Foodservice Production Management System at Commissary

09/16/2009
Whole Foods Market plans to install foodservice software at its Rockville, Md., commissary to optimize its production management, requisitions and transfers.

The Austin, Texas-based natural and organic products retailer will implement the CorTec Enterprise Software system from Culinary Software Services, Inc., a Boulder, Colo.-based provider of back-of-the-house technology for the foodservice industry.

The Rockville commissary provides prepared and packaged foods for more than 30 stores in the area. Whole Foods will use CorTec to keep production schedules on target with par levels that are triggered by sales at individual stores. It will also use the system to streamline the process for managing the movement of product between the commissary and the stores, creating greater control and eliminating waste.

Using the functionality of ChefTec Software, which Whole Foods already uses, CorTec was developed to provide an integrated system of back-office management tools that improve profitability by enhancing communications and control. Its functionality includes inventory control, recipe and menu costing, production management, purchasing and ordering, requisitions and transfers, and nutritional analysis.
