Engagement Overview:

Over the past decade, the organic food manufacturing market has been performing well despite the economic downturn. However, increasing globalization, regulations, and competition are some of the rising challenges in the organic food manufacturing market. Besides, supply chain complexities and operational risks are increasing challenges for organic food manufacturing companies.

The client, an organic food manufacturing company in China, faced challenges in managing supply risks arising from various factors such as single supplier sourcing, supplier capacity constraints, and supply quality issues. Also, as the client partnered with multiple third-party logistics (3PL) providers and co-packing suppliers to manage its supply chain processes, they faced difficulties in coordinating with them and ensuring timely delivery. As such, they wanted to build resilient and agile processes to effectively mitigate supply chain risks. Besides, they wanted to drive higher-cost efficiencies through strategic sourcing and warehouse management.

Other key objectives of the engagement were:

  • Objective 1: Identify all threats to supply continuity
  • Objective 2: Establish a detailed supply risk assessment mechanism to identify supply risks and proactively work toward mitigating them
  • Objective 3: Optimize warehouse management and operations, inbound and outbound transportation, and co-packing processes

To ensure effective mitigation of risks, organic food manufacturing companies must have a structured risk management strategy in place with the primary objective of reducing supply vulnerability and ensuring business continuity.

Our Approach:

As a part of the risk assessment solution, the experts at Infiniti Research worked closely with the client’s in-house team to examine the company’s supply chain complexities. They developed a strategic sourcing road map for the client and also conducted extensive market research to identify a list of potential suppliers with the capabilities and infrastructure necessary to fulfill the client’s requirements. During the final phase of the engagement, the supply risk assessment model was customized based on the client’s process parameters. This model factored nine unique parameters to quantify the risk and helped the Organic food manufacturing market client prioritize areas that required immediate risk mitigation plans.
