UK, USA (I-Newswire) January 18, 2011 - Reading, UK - 7 January 2011 - Mitchells & Butlers, the leading operator of restaurants and pubs in the UK, has selected the STEP master data management platform from Stibo Systems to help improve its product information management for ingredients, suppliers, recipes and menus across its range of industry leading brands including Harvester, Vintage Inns and Toby Carvery.

The implementation of STEP will underpin Mitchells & Butlers' drive to develop its processes, systems and data quality in order to be able to make the best possible decisions regarding menus and drinks ranges, and to be more agile, rapid and responsive in going to market.
