A new case study was published by Clarifruit, together with SAP customer Zespri.
Zespri shared: “Integrating Clarifruit into our SAP system was a breeze.”
Who is Zespri?
Zespri is the world’s largest kiwi fruit marketer, based in New Zealand. They sell high-quality produce in over 50 countries, and they pride themselves on maintaining impeccable quality across their supply chain. Before partnering with Clarifruit, Zespri faced a number of challenges associated with unstandardized quality control practices, and a lack of objective data on which to base sound business decisions.
From Many Standards to One: The Urgent Need for Uniform Quality Control
Before launching their partnership with Clarifruit, Zespri took a decentralized approach to quality control. This was inevitable, given the global reach of their business. But it meant that different locations had different standards, without a single, uniform set to regulate all of them. As a result, inspectors conducted quality checks in different ways, bringing a great deal of subjectivity into the supply chain.
They approached Clarifruit with a set of specific aims:
- Standardize QC Processes: Unify inspection methods across the entire supply chain, from growers to market destinations.
- Optimize Data Accuracy: Establish a system for objective, consistent data collection to make better business decisions – and faster.
- Reduce Waste: Minimize produce waste throughout the supply chain
