Leading frozen food and catering services company apetito has teamed up with Movilitas Consulting to support its keen focus on traceability using its SAP enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. This new partnership underpins apetito’s approach of customer care through its provision of developing, making and delivering nutritious meals to individuals, care homes, hospitals and local authorities. It also places apetito as one of a small number of elite suppliers that have complete control over the major part of their supply chains.
apetito is an earlier adopter of SAP and has used it successfully across
its manufacturing and multiple distribution sites. With the increasing
requirement for more detailed food traceability and a need to make its warehouse operation more efficient to deal with rapid growth, apetito sought an SAP partner that could help the company achieve its objectives.
apetito selected Movilitas Consulting because the firm could offer local
expertise backed by a large resource of SAP traceability experts already
engaged in track and trace integration projects with some of the largest
organisations in the UK.
Steve Moore, project manager for apetito said, “This project will enable
us to strengthen our product traceability plus further enhance our customer

improvements to give greater visibility and more efficient use of raw
materials and ingredients throughout food production.
apetito has been creating delicious and nutritious meals for Care Homes,
Local Authorities and Hospitals for more than 50 years, providing food and
service for the elderly and vulnerable. Thanks to its sister company,
Wiltshire Farm Foods, apetito also delivers great tasting food direct to the
