Wilson Hellaby introduces MeatPro Solution for an efficient and competitive management of processes

"Now we have barcodes and handheld scanners for our carcass products which allow us to track the source of the product, its weight and its destination. That means we can process meat more quickly and get it to the customers sooner, giving them more time to sell it."

Bruce Fyfe, Group General Manager, Wilson Hellaby

The customer

There is a long and successful history behind the Wilson Hellaby group of companies. The Hellaby family has been in the meat trade since 1873 while Wilson Foods has operated in the local market since 1946. Wilson Hellaby Limited was formed in 1998 by the merger of Hellaby and Procter Meats and the meat interests of Wilson Foods. It employs over 600 people across three business groups and is a large New Zealand meat procurement, processing and provisioning firm.

The challenge

Wilson Hellaby wanted to upgrade its existing Fujitsu MeatPro solution while also extending it into the inventory management side of the business.

The solution

Fujitsu MeatPro for Dynamics NAV is a comprehensive multispecies processing solution providing Wilson Hellaby with an all-encompassing solution for margin management covering all facets of the business.

The benefit

  • Handheld scanners track carcass inventory more accurately and reduce human error
  • Stock can be more tightly controlled, extending the effective shelf life of carcasses to our customers
  • MeatPro now includes functionality to track physical carcass and carton inventory as the master record keeper for inventory transaction
  • Granular inventory control also enables the company to optimise carcass use and waste less meat
  • Over 200 tonnes of meat is now processed every day using Fujitsu MeatPro
