About ARA Food Corp
Plantains are a food staple throughout the world’s tropical regions – in fact, cousins of the banana rank as the tenth most important staple food in the world. Plantains are also a staple at ARA Food Corp. This 40-year-old, family-owned company proudly calls itself “The Home of the Plantain Chip” and is the only US manufacturer of the extraordinary popular snack food. Operating out of its headquarters in Miami, ARA Foood Corp ships its savory snacks throughout the country, both under its own brand and private labeled for other companies.
Here’s how FoodBusiness ERP helped solve ARA Food Corp’s challenges
With Sage X3, ARA Food Corp has transformed its manufacturing accounting from an after-the-fact function to a real-time operation. “Previously, we spent the next day keying all the production data into our software,” explains De Varona. “Now, we have laptops on the shop floor and are capturing manufacturing data in real time—when and where it’s happening.”
Capturing manufacturing data on the shop floor not only saves data entry time and improves data accuracy, it also provides immediate visibility into the whole production cycle. “We’re out in front of operations now,” notes De Varona. “We can spend our time analyzing and improving plant functioning not simply collecting and entering the data.”
