A rapidly growing processing company in Dublin
Rosie & Jim is an Irish food production company established in 1997 when award-winning Craft Butcher Jimmy McLoughin established Quality First Limited. He began producing gourmet chicken products for supply to butcher shops and restaurants. Before long, the rapidly growing business moved to larger premises in Inchicore, Dublin 8. At this point, Rosie joined to assist with running the business.
Rosie and Jimmy McLoughlin are a husband and wife team who share a passion for wholesome quality food.
Rosie and Jim supply distributors to the retail, food-service and catering trades with ready to cook chicken products such as Breaded fresh & Frozen Chicken products, Wraps & Pasties.
Rosie and Jim approached Emydex in 2016 with a view to implementing a factory-wide Production Control and Traceability Reporting IT system door-to-door. The company had no existing factory floor IT system in place, operating manual processes instead, which meant excessive recording of internal processes manually on paper, which was both laborious and time-consuming, and offered little by way of real-time production control and traceability reporting.
The company had no real insight into the quantity or value of their existing stocks, resulting in procurement planning issues. Unsure of what current stocks were available to fulfill production orders, often resulted in over-ordering of stock, and the holding of excess stock of raw materials, dry goods and ingredients on-site than was needed.
Working with Emydex
“By the end of the first week most of the production team using the system were already comfortable with using it. You could visibly see them speeding up when going through the individual screens... Overall, I feel the project was a successful implementation, and the new system has been well received by our production team, operators and supervisors.”
