Major UK Onion Packer Selects Microsoft

Dynamics™ NAV LINKFresh®

Friday 3rd December 2010; Cambridge, UK

Moulton Bulb LogoAnglia Business Solutions has announced that Spalding based Moulton Bulb Co Ltd., part of the Oldershaw Group, has selected the Microsoft Dynamics NAV based LINKFresh solution.  The company is one of the UK’s largest onion packers, packing around 25% of the UK’s supermarket requirement from growers based in Lincolnshire, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire. The group supplies both whole and prepared onions, garlic and shallots to major retailers such as Co-Op, ASDA and Waitrose.

The fully integrated end to end LINKFresh solution will manage the operations of Moulton Bulb Co Ltd and Goldwood Moulton.  The 60 user LINKFresh solution will be deployed to replace a mixture of legacy processes and systems including; DeFacto, Q-Sys and Excel Spreadsheets.

Commenting on the selection, David Hodgson, Managing Director at Moulton Bulb said, “We have ambitious growth targets and our legacy systems no longer meet the requirements of the business.  As the business expands, we need full operational transparency to satisfy the needs of our customers. The new LINKFresh solution will streamline our operational processes while providing invaluable dynamic management information. This will enable us to compete more effectively thus realising our commercial potential”.

LINKFresh will handle all operational aspects of the business including Finance, Planning & Forecasting, Live Inventory Management, Quality Control, Packing Centre Management, Warehouse Operations, Delivery Schedules and Logistics.  The solution also provides for state of the art mobility applications for Stock Management, Quality Control, Intake, Picking, Dispatch and Label Printing, as well as a touch screen user interface.

Robert Frost, Commercial Director at Anglia Business Solutions said, “We are delighted to be working in partnership with the team at Moulton Bulb.  The new LINKFresh solution will enable the Group to refine their working practices while using real time information as a competitive advantage.”


Moulton Bulb Co. Ltd

Moulton Bulb was originally created to sell tulip and daffodil bulbs grown by the Oldershaw brothers. In 1979, however, the company began packing onions for the supermarket trade. It has now grown into one of the largest onion packers in the UK. With a diverse customer base and an innovative approach to onion packing, Moulton Bulb is able to meet, with ease, the demands of all its customers.

The company prides itself on having the widest product range out of all the UK packers. Standard brown and red onion lines as well as traditional garlic and shallots are complemented by niche products such as white onions, Supasweet onions, fresh green garlic, pickling onions, echalion shallots and more recently, fully prepared onions and garlic. Moulton Bulb is also able to supply organic onions, shallots and garlic. All of these lines are backed up by the highest technical standards that ensure full traceability and product safety from field to fork
