food chain

Effective supply-chain management, is the foundation of a successful food and
beverage manufacturing Effective supply-chain management enables companies to
react to the daily changing demands by communicating their needs to their to their
suppliersThe supply chains help the Food and beverage manufacturers to manage both
food-safety risks and regulatory compliance. And while this industry is fairly recessionresistant, the severity of the recent downturn forced all companies to scrutinize margins
more closely, squeezing suppliers as they manage month-to-month and quarter-toquarter profits, rather than long-term growth.Food and Beverage manufacturers seek to
create world-class supply chains and establish the best practices, technology systems
and solutions, and workforce cultures that will sustain and grow their business—and
their suppliers and customers—into the next generation.
The Beverage and Food manufacturers company in the year 2009,carried out a survey
on different manufacturers in determining their success to pursue six key strategies that
will help maintain growth into the next generation, hence allowing them outdo other
firms or competitors. The six strategies explored by the Next Generation Manufacturing
(NGM) Study were: Customer-focused innovation, Engaging people/human capital
acquisition, development, and retention, Secure a competitive performance, Advanced
processes/improvement focus, Supply-chain management and collaboration,
sustainability and Global engagement:

Food and beverage manufacturers are dependent upon their supply chains
unlike many industries. These organizations face steady change spurred by:
New trends, such as the rise of private –label brands and continued growth of
“good-for-you” products has manufacturers and their supply chains to turn on a dime.
Trends such as healthy or organic foods may require reconfiguring supplier sourcing,
ingredients, and final products, while trends such as private-label or serving-size
packaging force branding, logistics, and messaging revisions.
Regulatory structures which impose compliance on food and beverage
manufacturers for the sake of food safety and product-marketing integrity. Food and
beverage manufacturer must prove that its products and the supplier’s products are
Stratified channels,where consumers migrate depending on their economic
tastes and status: food and beverage manufacturers should be able to understand
where consumers will be taking their products to—big box stores, specialty stores,
convenience outlets, etc.—and fight for shelf space in front of those consumers. (For
example, Wal-Mart is reducing the number of product lines it carries by as much as 15
percent, devoting more shelf space to best-selling products. Each chain has its own
value-add requirements and delivery. These customer signals must be quickly
communicated back to food and beverage manufacturers and their supply chains.
Even highly productive food and beverage manufacturers as well supply chains must be
able to adapt to market demands for them to be at better state of performance.

Food and beverage manufacturers must do three things exceptionally well,
achieve world-class supplier management and collaboration, especially if they want to
the capabilities of their supply base, create closer and more strategic relationships with
immediate customers (retailers and restaurants), satisfy end customers, and retain
profitability. They must:
• Be aware that supply-chain management and collaboration is a core strategy,
and that for food and beverage industry to survive it must achieve world-class
performance in its strategy, that is, it must develop and manage supply chains
and partnerships that provide flexibility, response time, and delivery performance
that exceed the competition.
• Provide dedicated employees, resources, investments, and best practices to
supplier management and collaboration in order to ensure that organizational
and end-to-end supply chain efforts satisfy customers in the most cost-effective
and productive manner
•Striving to have good relationships with customers and suppliers.Monitoring
performance to ensure high productivity and profitably get goods to market

World-Class Supply-Chain Management and Collaboration
Few food and beverage manufacturers have achieved world-class supply-chain management and
collaboration.This is according to the NGM Study which illustrates that only 6 percent of food and beverage
manufacturers report themselves as having achieved world-class supply-chain management and collaboration
(ranked 5 on a 1–5 scale). Just another 27 pe...
