  • (1888PressRelease) May 01, 2013 - TORONTO, ON - The implementation of JustFoodERP has kicked off at Food for Tots, the leading caterer to child care centres and schools in Toronto and surrounding regions, providing 3 million meals annually. Food for Tots is replacing three customized, non-integrated business systems with JustFoodERP to automate and optimize food preparation processes that must meet unique critical requirements.

    Food for Tots, founded in 1994, prepares an average of 13,000+ meals and snacks a day and accommodates a wide variety of allergy and dietary restrictions. Their 10,000 square foot commissary is 100% nut-free, pork-free and shellfish-free, and all allergy-free meals are prepared in a separate area by Red Seal Chefs. All members of the Food for Tots team hold current certification through the Food Handler Food Certification Program, and local suppliers follow strict guidelines regarding food safety through following HACCP principles. Food for Tots prepares food in accordance with the Day Nurseries Act, municipal requirements, and the Canada Food Guide. All menus are approved by a registered dietician, and the company is a member of Sustain Ontario for collaborative research and policy development on local sustainable food production.

    "We are very excited about the scalability of JustFoodERP and their commitment to the food industry. We want to leverage this system to respond to evolving customer needs and improving customer experience, and with this solution we know that our business will now stay on an upgradable solution," says Julia Selby, General Manager, Food for Tots. "We had reached the point with our highly customized systems that we couldn't modify them anymore to meet our growing needs."

    Marc DiGiorgio, VP, JustFoodERP, says "we are thrilled that the JustFoodERP system's superior food safety, quality and other functionality will advance the important role that Food for Tots plays in providing premium healthy menu and snack offerings for young children, helping all those happy little customers. JustFoodERP will support the continuing goal of excellence, and growth, of Food for Tots, in the years ahead."
