The context

Seeking to optimise its procurement costs, a leading private equity-owned multi-national food processor engaged Ayming to

  1. Assess key direct spend areas such as packaging
  2. Identify improvement opportunities
  3. Develop a strategy and implementation plan to deliver them.

In addition, to conduct a detailed risk analysis on key raw material supplies and develop a risk management strategy.

Our contribution/mission

  • Ayming’s procurement specialists conducted an opportunity assessment to identify optimisation levers for each of the categories. The team defined savings targets and created the implementation plan to achieve them.
  • Throughout the engagement, the team engaged with several functions across the business to ensure that the overall strategy (e.g. market positioning in different markets) was considered when evaluating alternative materials & specifications.

The results obtained

Ayming successfully identified and validated double-digit % savings opportunities across in-scope categories. Furthermore, several procurement effectiveness measures were issued to ensure that benefits were sustained.

In addition, a commodity-based risk management strategy and plan of action was created together with a dynamic raw materials risk management tool.
