The family run business, established in 1975 by James Carpenter, processes orders for manufacturers such as Jack Link's Beef Jerky and American Licorice Sour Punch and sells them to Alabama Distributors.

American Licorice turned to the CompuCRIB parts management system from ShelfPlus Automated Storage Concepts as a way to reduce floor space requirements from 1800 square feet to less than 600 square feet.
At American Licorice, CompuCRIB was able to cut crib payroll costs by eliminating the need for storeroom attendants on late shifts.
In order to fulfill its mission of being "Better Tomorrow than We Are Today," American Licorice relies on strategic trade promotion management with MEI.
