BakePlan – fresher products, less waste, more sales

Multi-wave production forecasting for in-store bakeries and food-to-go operators

BakePlan is a production forecasting system that cuts waste, increases sales and improves availability for in-store bakeries and bake-from-frozen operations. BakePlan tells in-store bakery staff the best combination of products to bake at the right times via tablets or mobiles. Using advanced data analytics and machine learning, BakePlan adjusts its suggestions according to the day's trading patterns.

Freshness and availability are key differentiators between grocery retailers in today’s highly competitive market. Bakery is at the front line of this battle for customer buy-in. Stores that get their demand forecasting right sell fresher, better quality products at the times customers want them. Our experience is that food production sections that get to grips with multi-wave production planning increase like-for-like sales by around 5%.

At the same time, grocers are committed to driving down food waste. In the UK, the Courtauld 2025 agreement aims to cut waste in the sector by fifth by 2025. BakePlan cuts in-store food production waste by 20%. True fresh item management for bakeries and other in-store food production units has evaded retailers for decades. With BakePlan, it is now a reality.
