Establish a demand-driven supply chain to drive market share and profitability
In today’s food and beverage industry, commodity prices keep rising. Consumer focus on food safety keeps growing. Tracking the origins of produce and materials is becoming even more complex in an increasingly global marketplace. Regulators want detailed information on who touches food during the harvest and production process. And corporate reputations are on the line every single time there’s a recall.
Many of the world’s leading food and beverage companies — including ConAgra Foods, Inc., Del Monte Foods Company, Dr Pepper Snapple Group and Nestlé —
have turned to JDA to help overcome these challenges and for its supply chain management technology and domain expertise in demand management, factory planning and scheduling, inventory optimization, sales and operations planning, and transportation and logistics management.
JDA’s innovative software and services enable food and beverage companies to:
Assess and leverage pattern shifts in consumer preferences to drive demand forecasting and management. Companies can rapidly respond to daily changes in customer demand, from manufacturing activities all the way through logistics functions.
Sense and respond faster to changing market conditions with daily planning and scheduling. Companies can develop effective consensus demand plans that incorporate promotions and new products into the demand management process.
