Almond Processor & Supplier

Business Challenge

The demand for almonds and almond-based milk and snack products has surged as consumers strive for more healthy lifestyles and well-balanced food options. This almond supplier operates a co-op of over 3,000 member growers to keep pace with the world’s growing appetite and needed a way to ensure efficient, accurate, and compliant operations through its business growth.

Existing processes were mostly manual with information spread out in disparate systems. While bills of materials were stored in SAP ERP, recipe data and label graphics were disconnected in a web-based document management system. To avoid the inevitable errors and financial implications of inconsistent product data, leadership sought out a product development solution that would minimize errors, reduce time to market, and ensure the availability of accurate product data.


SAP Product Lifecycle Management (SAP PLM) was the strategic choice because of its tight integration with the current SAP ERP system and manufacturing operations. The company also recognized future integration benefits that aligned with its SAP technology roadmap.

To accelerate the project and ensure industry best practices, Linx-AS implemented its proprietary ROI Now™ for Product Development solution. The package, which is specifically designed for SAP Recipe Development projects, included delivery accelerators to expedite an immense data migration effort as well as solution enhancements like streamlined workflow to improve recipe change processes. Additionally, to satisfy regulatory compliance requirements, the project team seamlessly integrated external food compliance databases with the standard compliance check functionality in SAP.
