Make your food production process faster, smarter, and less wasteful

For food manufacturers and distributors, the focus is on delivering a quality product, on time and compliant with food safety standards. And Katana’s platform aspires to help you cover all of these, helping cut down on unnecessary daily admin so you can focus on developing your product line and maintaining quality without overspending.

And whether you do distribution yourself, or use an outsourced food distributor, our shipping partners will have you covered.

Consistent recipe management, lot traceability, and production improvement

The recipe for your products, or their bill of materials, defines every individual element that goes into them. To maintain quality management, your product recipes need to be consistent, accurate, and well-structured. And Katana offers this within our platform, as well as the option to add notes to recipes in case your team needs to know specific individual details.

We also offer batch traceability with barcode tracking, so you can track perishable stock and product expiry dates to ensure the right batches are being sold and shipped first. Our shop floor app also assists in manufacturing operations, as it enables you to create tasks for your warehouse staff and see when things are done and orders are shipped.

All of this means you can spend more of your daily time on product development.

Meeting food safety standards and shipping on time

With product recipes and batch tracking, you’ll be able to ensure your products meet relevant compliance standards and are shipped on time to the right customers. To help you manufacture and distribute on time, Katana offers two shipping partners who are directly integrated with our platform.

And before orders can be shipped, they need to be sold – and this is where our range of e-commerce integrations is crucial. As well as native integrations with Shopify and WooCommerce, we have loads of third-party providers who help you sell anywhere online you need to reach.

Katana’s food ERP system has you covered from stock to shipped.
