Griesson de Beukelaer has been one of the leading European biscuit manufacturers for years. No matter if sweet or salty: the seductive product range has something for every taste in the highest quality. The family-owned company with numerous well-known brands can look back on an extensive pastry tradition and manufactures at five national locations today with over 2,000 employees and the most modern production machines. The central administration and the strategic purchasing department responsible for all locations are located at the headquarters in Polch in the Eifel region.
Before the start of the twelve-month procurement cost optimization project, the later project topics were identified and defined in a one-month analysis phase. In the course of the project, product groups from the areas of raw materials, packaging and technology & service were processed. On the basis of a project schedule defined at the beginning, the individual topics were prioritized – taking into account any contract terms that still need to be fulfilled – and subsequently started in phases. After just a few weeks, the first savings potentials could already be demonstrated transparently and then successfully implemented. Thanks to a trustful cooperation with the purchasing department and a target-oriented approach, many topics could be implemented with well-known existing suppliers or service providers, so that time-consuming tests or certification procedures did not have to be carried out and the effects achieved had a quick and effective impact. In addition, sustainability aspects were taken up and improvements were achieved to which Griesson de Beukelaer has been particularly committed for many years. By securing the conditions achieved in the long term, not least by establishing transparent pricing models, it was possible to guarantee and ensure the sustainability of the purchasing advantages achieved.
