Produce Pro Software acquired by Aptean

Aptean, a global provider of mission-critical enterprise software solutions, has acquired Produce Pro Software, a provider of enterprise technology solutions built to support the needs of the fresh produce and perishables industries. Produce Pro’s products are designed to serve its customers across the supply chain from production to distribution and are used by food distributors, brokers, processors and growers in North America.

With the acquisition, Aptean builds upon its food and beverage ERP offerings with additional functionality to serve the food distribution segment of the industry. Produce Pro will benefit from Aptean’s global scale, resources and technological expertise.

Founded in 1990 and headquartered in Woodridge, Illinois, Produce Pro’s enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution is designed to meet the unique, end-to-end, operational challenges of fresh food producers and distributors. Food distribution often involves the receipt and shipment of products with a short shelf life, resulting in a high risk of loss or waste of inventory. Produce Pro’s platform helps its customers meet this risk and other complexities, including food quality and safety requirements, pricing fluctuations, dependency on supplier relationships and complex inventory management by supporting traceability, increasing visibility and improving efficiencies across the supply chain.

“Aptean is excited to expand our purpose-built software offerings for the food and beverage industry,” said Bob Kocis, president, Americas at Aptean. “Distributors play a vital role in the food industry, connecting growers and manufacturers with the food service businesses that will ultimately transact with consumers. The talented team at Produce Pro understands the requirements of these companies and is committed to the success of its customers.”

“Produce Pro is pleased to join forces with Aptean,” said Dave Donat, president at Produce Pro. “Its established expertise in the food and beverage industry combined with its scale and resources will allow us to enhance our ability to serve our customers and innovate for future growth.”

Software Equity Group (SEG) served as the exclusive advisor to Produce Pro Software.
