Success Stories - Galloway Seafoods


The Galloway Seafoods production facility in Newton Stewart specialises in producing breaded scampi, deluxe fish cakes, fish bites, fish fillets and goujons. After a major £4 million expansion project was completed in 2010, Galloway Seafoods needed a stock management solution that would allow them to comply with strict traceability and quality requirements set by the food production industry.


In 2010, Galloway Seafoods completed the installation of a new cold store, including coating and packaging equipment, which substantially increased both product capacity and product range. In order to produce the required levels of quality and traceability within the warehouse, Galloway Seafoods had some very exacting requirements for managing its new cold store warehouse. Barcode-IT recommended their Dexterity WMS software with some customisation, in order to meet the specific needs of a frozen food production facility.

“We couldn't consider the expansion and the investment in a new Cold Store without a system to manage the stock. In our business it’s all about quality and traceability and Dexterity WMS gives us the ability to meet both of these goals." says Michael Murphy, Production Director at Sco-Fro Seafoods.


The new 1000 pallet cold store at Newton Stewart has allowed Galloway Seafoods to expand its range of frozen products to include breaded chicken. Dexterity WMS manages the tracking, location and quality of all of the products, recording the origin, temperature, time in production, time in cold store, etc. This gives total traceability for every batch of product, from receipt of the seafood right through to despatch. After being received and recorded, each batch is identified by barcode and booked into the cold store. Goods are then tracked throughout production to finished goods and finally to despatch. Numerous checks are recorded at each stage to ensure the correct batches are being used and temperature targets are met to provide full traceability and a quality record.


“Barcode-IT took the time to understand our requirements and were accommodating and flexible as we went through scoping the project. They were able to deliver a solution to our specification and to very demanding timescales. The whole solution from inception to installation took just 12 week!” says Michael Murph.

How It Started
Galloway Seafoods contacted Barcode-IT following an internet search for warehouse management systems. Following an initial discussion, Barcode-IT were invited to visit the site to discuss Galloway Seafood’s exacting requirements and propose a solution to their frozen food batch production project. After considering competitor offerings, Galloway Seafoods chose Barcode-IT to provide the Dexterity WMS software and hardware required to complete their project.
