One of the leading poultry businesses in the Middle East, Arasco Foods, has signed an agreement with MTech Systems to purchase computer software for its integrated activities. The agreement provides a full suite of modules covering parent stock breeder production through to hatchery, broiler growing, processing and logistics operations.
“We shall be providing a complete vertical software solution for Arasco Foods in Saudi Arabla,” said Jim Johnston, director of MTech Systems Europe. “Arasco will be implementing our full suite of modules right through to transport of finished goods to market.
