CHICAGO, Dec. 20, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- John Galt Solutions, the leading provider of affordable planning solutions for the consumer-driven supply chain, today announced that it has been named again as a top technology provider by Food Logistics magazine. The annual Food Logistics 100 recognizes leading technology solution and service providers for the food, beverage and consumer packaged goods industries.
Each year, the editors of Food Logistics recognize 100 top technology and solution providers that help grocery and foodservice distributors and manufacturers reach their business goals. For 2010, the magazine focused the theme on leveraging technology to bounce back from tough economic times.
"Despite the harsh environment, the past year has seen a number of food and beverage companies implementing technology solutions where they can see a quick ROI," says Katherine Doherty, editor-in-chief of Food Logistics magazine.
Numerous food and beverage companies – including Blue Bunny, Delicato Vineyards, Musco Olives, Smithfield Foods and Tasty Baking – use solutions from John Galt to increase forecast accuracy, optimize inventory levels and maximize supply chain performance. The more innovative companies are using John Galt's Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) solutions to advance to a cross-functional S&OP process that produces a consensus plan and drives immediate improvements to the bottom line. Throughout the industry, John Galt's food customers have dramatically improved their forecast accuracy and reduced costly stock-outs.
Anne Omrod, CEO of John Galt Solutions stated, "Being recognized again in the FL100 pays tribute to the years that we've spent improving the food supply chain. Our demand planning, inventory optimization and S&OP solutions are designed to handle the challenges of short shelf life, frequent new product introductions and seasonality that food, beverage and consumer goods companies must overcome." she concluded.
Nominations were reviewed and winners were chosen by the magazine's editorial staff. The final list is featured in the cover story of the November/December 2010 issue of Food Logistics, as well as online at http://www.foodlogistics.com.
