What Protein Manufacturers Need To Know About Catch Weight

By Sharon Fuchs, justfoodERP

Last week we released our Feature Pack 3, a product update containing a suite of valuable new features. One of the features that we’re most excited about is our new variable weight functionality, making it easier for protein manufacturers to cost, code and track their products. In light of this new functionality, we wanted to provide a little background on what makes catch/variable weight such a unique challenge and why these new features are so exciting.

While some industries follow fairly straightforward inventory management and billing systems, the protein industry faces some unique challenges. Because there are often discrepancies between the average weight of food items and the actual weight, many manufacturers opt to use a catch weight inventory management system to avoid issues and treat customers fairly.
