Icicle ERP’s food safety, production, and compliance management solution was honoured for its ability to ensure a safe, efficient, and reliable global cold food and beverage supply chain, according to a statement from the Richmond-based tech firm.
“Our advanced ERP software, developed exclusively for food manufacturers, secured business resilience for members of the Icicle Community through a range of supply chain disruptions,” stated Steven Burton, founder of Icicle Technologies.
Founded in 2015, the BC company utilizes technology to “elevate growing food manufacturing companies.”
Icicle’s mission? “Shaping the future of food production,” Burton says.
This year’s Food Logistics Award Winners are investing in and implementing emerging technologies, from mobile technology and Internet of Things to food safety management, routing, scheduling, and more, according to the magazine.
Burton believes Icicle ERP can harness the power of them all in a dynamic, end-to-end management system designed specifically for the challenges of today’s food and beverage manufacturers.
“Seamless data management and automation are the keys to maximizing margins for food production; supply chain agility depends on real-time insights that allow you to adjust your strategies to meet customer demand,” the CEO said.
According to Burton, Icicle’s unified and intuitive approach to food production warehouse management sets the stage for uninterrupted and adaptable business growth with paperless systems that reinforce the highest levels of food safety, quality, and profitability.
“These providers and their solutions are being implemented to address challenges in the cold food supply chain, whether that be port closures, driver safety or just simply automating a process,” stated Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive.
In similar fashion, Icicle Technologies claimed the title of ERP Software of the Year at the 2022 AgTech Breakthrough Awards in September—an annual event which honours excellence in agricultural and food technologies and products across the globe.
At the awards, Icicle was recognized for its strength in compliance management and adaptability for highly complex food production businesses.
