Functional Analyst @ Poppies Bakeries

Poppies Bakeries was founded in 1976 by Frans Castelein and his brother-in-law Luc Popelier.  They began baking and selling traditional Flemish pastries and cookies to local market vendors, small stores and local organizations.  By paying attention to what customers thought of the treats, they learned which products were valued and loved.

Poppies Bakeries has 650 permanent employees in Belgium, more than 1,300 internationally in 14 production sites and sells to 57 countries worldwide. 

Headquarters is located in Belgium, in Zonnebeke where construction of a new office building will begin this year.


The company's technical landscape consists of several components, including FlexProcess, production applications and Office 365. Most of the applications used by the company are standard applications and are centralized in Zonnebeke for the entire group.

Currently there is no CRM package yet, but with continuous investment in improving the processes and systems, this is also on the horizon. Currently, the migration from the current FlexProcess to the new SAP S/4HANA landscape has started.
