An integrated ERP system specific to your industry will be better equipped to handle your food and beverage manufacturing requirements than a generic ERP.  Industry-specific solutions can be installed faster and be less expensive to implement and to maintain.  Although generic ERP vendors may have software partners who offer front-end packages that target industry verticals, you should consider the issues of working with multiple vendors.  Finally, to meet the unique requirements of your industry, you may find that the capabilities you need are only available in industry-specific ERP solutions.
