Allied Bakeries has selected Top Image Systems to implement an automated invoice processing solution that is integrated with their SAP system.

Allied Bakeries is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Associated British Foods (ABF) Group, which totaled £15.4bn in revenue in 2017. The ABF Group comprises five business segments—Grocery, Sugar, Ingredients, Agriculture, and Retail. Allied Bakeries operates within the Grocery segment, manufacturing such UK household brands as Sunblest, Kingsmill, Allinson’s, and Burgen.
