New demands dictate the need for a different approach to procurement
The unpredictable, rapidly changing nature of today's global supply chain, combined with greater expectation for tangible value to the end customer, dictates the need for a different approach to procurement. The global pandemic caught many companies off guard and brought to light the hidden vulnerabilities that exist within an otherwise efficient global supply chain, reinforcing the need for digitization, optionality, agility, better visibility and an improved balance between local, regional and global sourcing and adding new urgency to the need to know sooner and act faster.

We brought Maine Pointe in for a Strategic Procurement Initiative that involved helping us review our key food and beverage categories, and to identify cost savings opportunities along with a sustainable procurement process. They delivered nine training modules from ‘Supplier Conditioning’ all the way through ‘Implementing Supplier Agreements’ along with ‘Improving and Building Supplier Relationships’.
