The Rhodes Food Group’s Fresh Foods division in Groot Drankenstein, Western Cape, produces a range of fresh and frozen meals which are supplied to retails and franchise restaurants.
Rhodes uses TransLution™ to keep track of their production as it happens. Jobs related to products and movement of products in the factory are captured in “real time”, ensuring the values appearing on the ERP software coincide with the physical numbers of the products in the factory.
Labels are printed for trolleys and lugboxes with information regarding the type of product and the quantity each contains. These labels are scanned throughout the production process; from the time single units are packed onto a trolley, through to going into the chillers and fridges, moving along the packing lines, and being dispatched in lugboxes.
Rhodes Food Group ranks among the top 10 listed food companies on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange and is one of the oldest food producing companies in South Africa.
