M&B Products, Inc. is a premier supplier of juice and milk related products to the food service industry including schools, nursing homes, hospitals and prisons. M&B is located in Tampa, Florida and was founded in 1987 with one customer and one truck. Their dedication to continuous improvement has grown the business into a distribution network throughout 33 states. M&B is a USDA Continuous Inspected juice processing plant and a state licensed and inspected fluid milk processing plant. M&B is recognized as environmentally friendly by having the small- est carbon footprint of any school milk delivery system in the U.S. Dale McClellan, owner of M&B Products, was named “2012 Florida Farmer of the Year” and “2012 Southeastern Farmer of the Year.”

Before interlink

M&B’s warehouse operations used a paper driven system that could not offer real-time information and therefore forecasting decisions were based on best guesses and hoping that product would be available. The lack of real-time knowledge did not allow efficient use of space and required M&B to use additional outside storage with limited knowledge of what was actually in outside storage. Physical inventory was performed every month. It was a very time consuming process that did not yield real-time or accurate numbers. As the business grew, the paper system was unable to provide a guarantee that oldest product shipped first.
