KLN Family Brands works with IFS to improve forecasting and drive growth

KLN is a family-owned company based in Minnesota, that manufactures human and pet food products. During a period of rapid growth, with demand for its products spiking (driven partly by the Covid-19 pandemic), KLN chose IFS to implement an ERP solution that would provide the visibility, agility and efficiency needed to set the company up for future success.

Currently, all three of KLN’s facilities are harnessing IFS, with a full suite of forecasting and planning software capabilities in widespread use across all parts of the business including finance, manufacturing, sales and marketing.
