Erudus adds leading wholesaler as year of rapid growth continuesAn online platfo

An online platform providing the foodservice industry with instant access to food product data has increased its users by 180 per cent in the past 12 months.

And Erudus has also added Brakes Foodservice, which supplies caterers across the UK, to its growing list of wholesalers signed up to the platform.

Erudus has experienced significant growth in the last year including seeing the number of users benefiting from accessing the nutritional and allergen data grow from 10,000 to just under 90,000.

In addition, the number of wholesalers signed up has increased from 42 in 2016 to 117, while the number of manufacturers entering data has more than doubled from 1,135 to 2,748 in the same period. The number of products has also grown from 28,083 to more than 60,000 in two years.

And the company has exciting plans for the next 12 months as it aims to strengthen its position of being the industry solution to product data sharing.

A planned update will include 250,000 product images being made available to download for marketing material, price lists, e-commerce sites, and mobile ordering apps, where integrations are in place.

And Erudus is now planning a move to new premises to facilitate further growth and employ more staff.

Chief operating officer Jon Shayler said: “We’re pleased to see another major player in the industry join the solution to product data, with Brakes now one of the 117 wholesalers benefitting from Erudus.

“To go from 10,000 caterers utilising data from us to 90,000 in just 12 months is incredible. It’s becoming a must-have app in the foodservice industry with wholesalers, caterers, and manufacturers all thrilled with the collaborative approach of the software.

“The introduction of images is something many of our users have requested, and it’s going to be a major milestone for Erudus, and the industry, when this launches.”

Erudus is the leading foodservice data pool software and hosts the specifications of major manufacturers including Heinz, Premier Foods, and Unilever.
