Development of Procurement & Supply Chain Management Dedicated Grain Supply Chain Team. Centralised Non-Grain Procurement Team.
Supplier relationships, working closely with farmers and merchants Long term supply agreements to secure supply and manage price volatility Collaboration with customers through long term supply agreements backing off risk Educating customers on barley risk Managing barley risk
1 or 2 suppliers per mode of transport, transactional relationships primarily driven by cost and turnover Low level understanding of each others’ businesses and supply chains Reduce transport costs, “missed tricks” and untapped potential benefit from economies of scale Internal inefficiencies driving up costs Logistics is CORE
Our chosen strategy is LLP To reduce operating costs (e.g. Transport) Remove non-value added activities, share benefits of improvements Improve customer service performance
1300 live vendors, focus on critical and high value ones, longer term supply agreements 700 direct materials purchased from over 100 vendors going into approximately 750 finished product lines sold to nearly 600 customers globally Stringent supplier approval process (quality, food safety, sustainability, ethical, CSR, capability, business continuity plans/management system) – visits, audits) SEDEX membership Continual assessment of supplier performance, complaints & corrective actions (quality systems), feedback to suppliers and exchange of information Supplier management
Overriding objectives Develop sustainable supply chains which our customers want to lock into Develop strategic supplier partnerships which we want to lock into Act as a catalyst for supply chain discussions across many diverse industries
