Food for thought: How we’re transforming the food and drink industry.

Patrick Redfern   Leadership bio


We’re constantly thinking about how EDI can transform Business processes within different industries, and recently shared our latest insights and learnings at the 4th National Irish Food and Drink Business Conference.

The event attracted leaders from the grocery retail and foodservice industries who gathered for a series of seminars and keynote talks, including a presentation by Celtrino founder, Ken Halpin.    

Currently the grocery industry in Ireland is at the frontline of Brexit, having to:

  • Contend with dramatic currency fluctuations.
  • Face the challenges of falling imports and slowing volume growth in the UK.

 Yet in a climate of unprecedented levels of unpredictability, Celtrino demonstrated how our EDI integration Supply Chain Automation expertise is ensuring certainty for many of the industry’s key players.

Ken outlined how Celtrino has helped a major Irish Symbol Group operator to implement highly efficient supply chain automation, and how our digital capabilities are delivering visibility within a complex chilled distribution model, initiating inherent benefits including:

  • Dynamic touchscreen ordering
  • Fast and seamless order to delivery cycle
  • Advanced reporting
  • Multiple cost reductions

Just the kind of advanced automation that is empowering producers to trade effortlessly with major retailers, and the kind of digital processes that Celtrino is advancing across multiple industries. Advances we hope will inspire you as well.
