International Women’s Day is a global event that celebrates the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. It also calls for action to accelerate gender equality and empower women worldwide.
The team behind NotaZone are proud to work with many women entrepreneurs in the food industry who are making a difference in their communities and beyond. These women are innovating, creating, and leading in an industry that is constantly changing and evolving. As our client Caroline Spiby from Caroline’s Dairy shares, “Since starting my ice cream business in 2008 we have grown substantially which we think is due to our luxury award-winning ice cream being made using only the milk from our family dairy farm in West Sussex. There have been many learning curves to climb and a lot of legislation to abide by but when you believe in your product as I do, this is all achievable.”
The food industry is one of the most diverse and dynamic sectors in the UK. It offers many opportunities for women entrepreneurs to showcase their passion, creativity, and skills. However, it also poses many challenges such as competition, regulation, sustainability, and customer expectations.
Here at Agrantec, we believe that ‘behind every successful entrepreneur is a tool that empowers them to grow and work efficiently’. We designed NotaZone, our inventory management and trace platform created especially for the food industry to provide food producers and entrepreneurs. A powerful tool, it enables you to manage your stock, trace your products, and streamline your operations. NotaZone facilitates easy inventory tracking, and production process management and gives valuable insight into your business performance, all from a single, user-friendly interface.
But it’s not just about the technology-it’s also about the people. The team behind NotaZone has had the pleasure of working with many amazing women entrepreneurs over the years, and we’ve been inspired by their creativity, passion, and vision for the future of food.
“Working within the food industry brings many challenges, not least of which is maintaining full traceability. As a food manufacturer, it is so important to have efficient and effective inventory management, production planning and scheduling, and robust goods-in and goods-out records and Agrantec has ticked all the boxes for us. The fact that they specialise in the food industry is significant as it covers everything we need.”
Helen Graham, Director, Ludlow Nut Co Ltd
“Notazone has helped us streamline processes, eliminate paperwork and free my team up for baking, innovation and taste testing!”

As the food industry continues to evolve and change, we believe that women entrepreneurs will play an increasingly important role in shaping its future. And at Agrantec, we are committed to supporting them every step of the way.
So, this International Women’s Day, let’s celebrate the women who are making a difference in the food industry and let’s continue to work together to create a more inclusive, and vibrant world for all of us.
