Higgidy Pies has teamed up with software specialist Sage after three years of exponential growth “stretched it to the limit”.

The Sage ERP solution will allow Higgidy to monitor everything from the ingredients it needs to seeing where stock needs to be delivered - and by when.

“Our previous systems weren’t linked up,” said commerical director Mark Campbell. “This system brings everything under one umbrella.”

Higgidy supplies Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, The Co-operative Group, Ocado and Boots, and is looking to double in size by the end of next year. Campbell said the new system was “every bit as important” to its expansion as new kitchens would be.
