Today’s consumers are smarter and more connected than those of yesteryear - thanks in large part to the global ubiquity of mobile devices. In our mobile world, we must re-evaluate the role packaging plays with consumers, and we must amp up our business analytics capabilities so that we are able to anticipate supply and demand trends, and the impact promotional events will have on sales.
Leveraging the results of the 2012 and 2013 State of the Foodservice Supply Chain study, its deep industry knowledge and experience managing some of the world’s largest quick service restaurant (QSR) supply chains, HGS, with Technomic, developed the only supply chain maturity model focused exclusively on the foodservice industry, the HAVI Global Solutions Foodservice Supply Chain Maturity Model. The Model provides a framework to chart the progression of restaurant supply chains from rudimentary, insular functions lacking process formality and visibility to highly integrated, adaptive business units that help drive sales, deliver strategic insight and create shared value.
