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.

Judges of the CIS Excellence Awards said: “The CIS Excellence Awards recognise and reward both innovation and excellence in Scotland's catering and hospitality sector.  The Pelican Piranha system demonstrated real innovation in helping organisations keep control of costings, whilst also providing a straightforward way of calculating the required allergen information, in order to meet the Food Information for Consumers legislation. Well done to the team at Pelican for winning our Business Innovation Award.

Matt Ferris, Online Solutions Manager of Pelican Procurement Services said: “We are extremely proud that Piranha™ has been recognised by the judges of the Catering in Scotland Excellence Awards and has won the Business Innovation category. In fact, the organisers described our menu costing system as “groundbreaking software”, and to have won against the likes of Compass Group, who was shortlisted in the same category, is a real achievement. We have worked extremely hard to develop a system that not only helps clients monitor and control costs for each dish their serve, but also provides immediate access to the necessary allergen and nutritional data.”
