Icicle Food ERP Software Continues to be Recognized Among Food Logistics’ Top Software Providers
This week, Icicle’s food ERP software was recognized as one of Food Logistics’ Top Software & Technology Providers for the second year in a row – an achievement that testifies to Icicle ERP’s complete food safety, production, and compliance management solution. As an end-to-end management system, Icicle exactly fit the bill for Food Logistics’ award, which honours companies that develop technologies for the needs of the current global food supply chain.
“The supply chain management software segment is projected to reach $18.04 billion this year, according to Statista,” Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Food Logistics, commented when the award winners were announced. “These providers and their solutions are being implemented to address challenges in the cold food supply chain,” she continued, “whether that be port closures, driver safety or just simply automating a process.”
Supply chain issues remain a top concern for food manufacturers across the board, who must anticipate and respond to a wide range of challenges, often at the same time. “Our advanced ERP software, developed exclusively for food manufacturers, secured business resilience for members of the Icicle Community through a range of supply chain disruptions,” explained Steven Burton, Founder & CEO of Icicle Technologies. When food processors use Icicle’s Food ERP software for food production as the backbone of their operations, they are creating a solid foundation built on industry best practices and designed for GFSI certification and compliance.
The food industry in particular demands a unified approach to operations management, one that can span the entire supply chain and also adapt for the complexity and variabilities of specific sectors, product types, and particular companies. Burton expanded on Icicle Food ERP Software’s approach to this task:
Seamless data management and automation are the keys to maximizing margins for food production; supply chain agility depends on real-time insights that allow you to adjust your strategies to meet customer demand.

A recent article on the Icicle blog emphasized the importance of harnessing these kinds of capabilities to weather supply chain disruptions and even anticipate them. Automating aspects of food manufacturing like production planning, supplier management, warehouse management, and food safety and quality tasks can help companies keep production running smoothly even under great pressures. Robust analytics features based on real-time data, from forecasting to costing, provide critical visibility in addition to practical tools to address current challenges.
Food Logistics’ 2022 award for Top Software & Technology Providers comes as Icicle wraps up another busy year, most recently launching new tools to help Icicle users ensure that their employees are up-to-date on any training required for their role – especially useful for staffing changes – and new shipping notices that help warehouse, logistics, and procurement teams better manage their resources to meet their targets.
