When a $1B Health & Fitness multinational company experienced rapid growth, they began to run into raw material supply chain issues that posed product shortage threats. The company needed to conduct an end-to-end assessment of its supply chain in order to identify gaps and the requirements for the business to scale.
HighPoint was engaged to assess and evaluate the supply chain and opportunities for improved output. We deployed a supply chain professional with over 25 years of experience in consulting and operational roles in the ingredients and food and beverage sectors. The consultant identified issues and opportunities within the existing supply chain, developed options to achieve required outcomes, and reviewed findings and recommendations with executive team.
The client then overhauled the internal team, diversified its suppliers, warehouses and distribution base, and was able to double output without shortages within 18 months.
