Co-operative Farms LogoAnglia Business Solutions announces that The Co-operative Farms has selected the Microsoft Dynamics NAV LINKFresh® solution to manage its UK farming & distribution business. The Co-operative Farms has a current turnover of £50 million and is Britain’s largest farmer, managing over 50,000 acres of land in England and Scotland.

LINKFresh will be deployed across The Co-operative Farms’ UK sites including 3 pack houses and the Head Office in Manchester. A detailed business needs analysis exercise has already been completed and the LINKFresh deployment project begins in July.

“We carried out an extensive evaluation process prior to selecting LINKFresh” said Rob Hull, Head Of Vegetable Operations, “What impressed us was the sheer depth of packaged fresh produce functionality already incorporated in the product. Excellent feedback during our reference visits also convinced us that the system could meet both our immediate and future needs”.
