CASE STUDY

A Canadian Food and Beverage Manufacturer Identified Compliance Risks Using SpendEdge’s Solution

Jul 30, 2019

Food and Beverage Industry Overview

Companies in the Canadian food and beverage industry are investing in technologies to reach global markets. However, increasingly stringent regulatory frameworks and the ongoing commodity price supercycle are compelling companies to optimize supply chains to protect their profit margins. 

Business Challenges Faced

The client, one of the fastest-growing companies in the food and beverage industry, was facing challenges in keeping up with new and changing regulations. The rising regulatory burden due to industry-specific regulatory bodies, Codex Alimentarius, and government regulations was creating complexities for the client and resulting in excess spend. This was not only reducing available funds for capital spend and new product development but was also making it difficult for the client to compete with US-based products. Also, factors such as unexpected demand patterns and slow-moving supply responses were increasing prices for commodities and making it difficult for the client to compete in a global marketplace. The client, therefore, decided to leverage SpendEdge’s solution to identify compliance risks and ensure the availability of raw materials despite an increase in commodity prices. 

Key objectives the client aimed to achieve through this engagement were:  

  • Ensure strict regulatory compliance, supply-chain transparency, and traceability to address changing labeling requirements in Canada. 
  • Develop a high-performing supply chain to ensure the availability of commodities during supercycles.
