March 18, 2024– Centric Software®, the Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) market leader is pleased to announce that it has won three Just Food Excellence Awards 2024 in the categories of Environmental – Sustainability, Research & Development and Business Expansion.

Centric Software launched their Food & Beverage division three years ago, so winning the Business Expansion category award is especially impressive. Ross says, “The company is noted for having a significant number of customers in multiple geographies like Brazil, Finland, China, UK, US, Italy, France, Australia and more; the rapid adoption of Centric PLM™ by retail grocery and food & beverage companies; and more than doubling staff at Centric.”

Ross continues, “In the R&D category, Centric Software’s agility in rapidly developing and integrating new features tailored specifically for the retail grocery and food industry impressed the judges as well as the forging of strategic partnerships with food & beverage industry platforms like FoodChain ID and Bizcaps.” Also noted was the integration of regulatory databases to provide comprehensive PLM solutions that enhance efficiency, compliance and innovation in food product development.

In the Environmental – Sustainability category, Centric Software is recognized for the functionality of Centric PLM that enables sustainability initiatives, environmentally sound sourcing and features in PLM that support the development of green products.
