After extensive research into the market, Vegware, the award-winning manufacturer of eco-friendly catering disposables, has this month joined forces with Slimstock to help improve their already impressive availability levels. Following several years of rapid growth, the Edinburgh-based business will take advantage of the inventory management specialists’ solution, Slim4, to help keep up with the demand from both new and existing customers.

As the only manufacturer of completely compostable catering disposables to operate on a global scale, Vegware’s extensive customer base encompasses everything from independent cafes to multinational catering distributors. With a wide range of premium takeaway coffee cups, takeout boxes and food containers, Slimstock will help Vegware improve upon their already exceptional customer service.

Commercial director, Chris Murphy explains: “Vegware is a high-growth business – we have grown in double digits year on year. We already sell to clients in over 25 countries, but we needed a robust system to support our growth ambitions. A reliable insight into future demand is vital to help us meet the evolving needs of our customers”.


With the support of Slimstock’s inventory management solution, the team at Vegware will be able to forecast demand with far greater accuracy to make more informed inventory decisions while the management by exception principles of Slim4, allow the team to proactively manage potential issues before they become a problem.

“After looking at multiple software vendors, Slimstock were the only ones to demonstrate a proven roadmap to success. Furthermore, given their solid relationship with Microsoft Navision, it was obvious that Slimstock are the right partner to help support our continued global growth,” adds Murphy.
