The Global Supply Chain team has made significant progress in our ambition to deliver strategic transformation across our operations. Today, we are well on our way to further optimising our performance and meeting Edrington’s ambition to build a world-leading portfolio of super-premium spirits.
Our Transform programme has upscaled our product and service quality, supporting Edrington’s premiumisation strategy as we strive to meet and exceed consumers’ expectations. As part of this, we enhanced our premium packaging operations, overhauling the packaging environment and introducing an internal excellence function to help meet the wider variety of premium packaging needs.
We have also continued to invest in our systems and developed new ways of working to improve our planning and forecasting capabilities. Processes have been streamlined and systemised. Additional system functionality has been put in place, that provides better and simpler decision-making and visibility. This work, across people, process and systems, has resulted in enhanced collaboration across the business in the areas of demand and supply planning, whisky supply, pack standards and new product delivery. Overall, this work has improved collective operational performance and led to higher employee engagement.
