Leading Packaged Food Manufacturer Identifies Suppliers of Packaging Materials from Africa

Dec 8, 2016

Business Challenge: Issues with identifying best suppliers from Africa

A leading packaged foods manufacturer with operations across North America wanted to explore the possibilities of sourcing packaging raw materials from Africa. They were facing challenges with the identification of potential suppliers, and evaluating their capabilities.

Situation: The client lacked an understanding of the African supply market

The client was interested in exploring the possibilities of procuring packaging raw materials from Africa, as they learned about the cost saving opportunities. However, they were facing challenges due to the lack of understanding of the local supply market.

Approach: Applied a systematic approach for identification and shortlisting of potential suppliers

We took a systematic approach to identify, assess and recommend on the best possible suppliers based out of Africa. We initially developed a long list of suppliers, followed by shortlisting of potential suppliers based on operational and functional capabilities. We also identified potential risks with sourcing from the shortlisted suppliers and developed recommendations on mitigation strategies.

Impact: Client gained detailed understanding of the supply landscape in Africa and was able to identify potential suppliers

The client explored the possibilities of procuring packaging raw materials from Africa and the potential benefits. They were also able to develop an understanding of the potential risks associated with sourcing from the identified suppliers and mitigation strategies to reduce potential disruptions.
