Pelican Procurement Services, the procurement and supply chain management specialist, has been selected as a finalist for the 2015 Catering in Scotland Excellence Awards in recognition of the launch of its cloud-based food allergen, menu costing and nutritional analysis tool, Piranha™ – the industry’s first automated system to provide access to live-pricing data, allergen and nutritional information, in one central portal.

Developed by Pelican to support foodservice operators in accurately costing meals and supplying required allergen data, Piranha delivers access to live-pricing data in a user-friendly environment with full detail over menu costing and portion costs, as well as comprehensive allergen and nutritional content data. Pelican has been shortlisted in the Business Innovation Award category, and is nominated alongside 24, which is a Compass Group offering.

Matt Ferris, Online Solutions Manager of Pelican Procurement Services said: “Piranha™  was developed in direct response to the Food Information Regulations, which requires all organisations that serve food to the public to be able to provide food allergen details on request. With Piranha™, operators have full control of what is being spent on each dish, plus all the additional information which can help both promote and protect their business. 

Adds Matt Ferris: “Hundreds of Pelican customers from the hospitality, education and health sectors are now using Piranha™ and we are proud to be recognised as a finalist in this year’s CIS Excellence Awards. It is particularly pleasing too as our Pelican Pi system which provides customers with visibility and budget control over their operations, was also featured as a finalist in the Business Innovation category at last year’s awards.”

Winners will be announced at a ceremony on 21 May at the Hilton Glasgow.  For more information regarding Pelican’s range of procurement services and web based systems or to arrange a demonstration of the new Piranha™ system, telephone 01252 705 222.
