Lavazza brews up supply chain upgrade

By Retail Technology | Tuesday October 2 2018

Coffee brand Lavazza has revamped its global supply chain with new software

It has deployed SaaS-based supply chain planning solutions from JDA Software to give it a powerful competitive edge.
 
More than 27 billion cups of Lavazza coffee are consumed worldwide every year in its key business segments that include at home, away-from-home and office coffee service.
 
However, as a global player, Lavazza is facing the challenges of operating on a worldwide scale with a strong focus on organic growth, globalisation, brand strengthening, and further expansion of its operating margin and profitability. 

Synchronised plan 

To support its vision and growth strategy, Lavazza has selected several JDA supply chain solutions including JDA Enterprise Supply Planning and JDA Sequencing to help it build one globally synchronised plan that senses and responses profitability and quickly to supply and demand volatility across the 90 countries in which it operates.
 
“We look at our business processes in a holistic way as an enabler to support our customers’ satisfaction and organic growth. Today, having a flexible and integrated supply chain is a must to achieve these goals and to be competitive,” said Patrizia Tedesco, Group CIO, Lavazza.
 
The coffee company will deploy JDA in the cloud for an agile, complete and modular SaaS-based supply chain planning solution that will support its key production processes while helping them optimise constraints, margins and costs across production, distribution, inventory and procurement, all leading to improving service levels.  

With JDA Enterprise Supply Planning, Lavazza can make real-time updates and optimise plans on demand, while JDA Sequencing will take their production scheduling to the next level by simultaneously balancing customer service, cost and utilisation while respecting complex manufacturing constraints and rules.
