Associated British Foods continue to commit to HG

Twinings and Westmill Foods who are both part of the ABF group have recently selected the Hamilton Grant system for their Recipe / Specifications Management. Hamilton Grant has been working closely with a number of companies within the ABF group for many years and now the word has spread. When Twinings and Westmill started the process of looking for a system they visited other companies within the group who were already using HG and soon realised that Hamilton Grant was the obvious choice. Two of the major considerations were that Hamilton Grant had been successfully implemented and maintained at a number of other companies within the ABF group and the fact that Hamilton Grant focuses purely on food/beverage and has a reputation as the industry standard. Another key aspect to the decision was the amount of flexibility available within the templates which is critical for such a fast moving and high profile industry.
