One of Ireland's largest red meat producers
The Kepak Group is one of Ireland's largest red meat producers processing over 300,000 cattle, 1.5 million lambs and 25,000 tonnes of consumer foods per annum. The group's turnover is in excess of €750 million and they employ over 2000 people at 8 manufacturing plants located across Ireland and the UK.
Kepak has been an Emydex customer since 2006 when Emydex's production management software platform was rolled out in the group's main beef & lamb processing plant in Clonee, Co Meath.
In Clonee, Emydex software monitors, controls and reports on beef production door to door from arrival at the factory gates, through kill line, carcass management, into boning, packing, and dispatch.
Emydex software has also been rolled out in Kepak's beef processing plants in Ballymahon, Kilbeggan, Athleague and Hacketstown. The system is currently being rolled out in Kepak's lamb processing plant in Cork, with Wakefield UK planned for implementation in the latter half of 2010.
What Kepak Says
"We now have complete warehouse control and real time stocks down to scan level, without having to compromise on functionality. This functionality includes real-time validation at point of scanning an order, where the Emydex system warns operators of any discrepancies that arise during picking."
