Infor, a cloud company, announced that Daudruy, a supplier of oils with nearly two centuries of history, has opted to implement the Infor CloudSuite Food & Beverage solution. This cloud-native Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) suite, powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS), is designed specifically for the food and beverage industry.
The deployment of Infor CloudSuite Food & Beverage will be executed in collaboration with LTTD Consulting, an esteemed Infor partner with profound expertise in the food industry. This initiative is a part of Daudruy’s strategic information systems transformation, driven by the management of the company headquartered in Dunkirk, Northern France.
Daudruy and its subsidiaries are prominent players in the oilseed-related businesses, offering customers a diverse range of vegetable and animal oils and fats, biodiesel, and biogas. The company is renowned for its product quality, strict social and environmental values, as well as a focus on long-term sustainability. With a workforce of 200 employees, Daudruy achieved revenues of €520 million in 2022.
With Daudruy’s legacy ERP system in place for almost two decades, the company recognized the pressing need for a more dynamic and modern solution. The legacy system no longer met the evolving requirements of the company and modern commercial practices. Its maintenance demanded substantial resources and posed risks, making a transition imperative.
Pierre-Louis Daudruy, co-manager of Daudruy Cos., emphasized the importance of a technological solution that aligns with their team’s expectations and facilitates seamless processes. The transition to Infor CloudSuite Food & Beverage was viewed as a vital step to modernize operations and meet the evolving demands of the industry.
For Infor, this project marks a significant stride in the vertical and micro-vertical sectors of the food industry. The Infor CloudSuite Food & Beverage solution is tailored to meet the specific needs of the fast-moving food industry. In collaboration with partners AWS and LTTD Consulting, Infor is committed to developing an intelligent and scalable system that will drive controlled and secure business growth for Daudruy.
The implementation of Infor CloudSuite Food & Beverage is set to commence in September 2023, with subsequent functional workshops and two implementation phases planned for November 2024 and June 2025. This strategic partnership aims to modernize Daudruy’s operations and drive efficiency in the food and beverage industry. Stay tuned for updates on this transformative project.
