Griffith Foods Expands Global Roll-out of Logility
Logility, Inc., a leading provider of collaborative supply chain optimization and advanced retail planning solutions, today announced Griffith Foods, a global provider of food ingredients with the company purpose of “blending care and creativity to nourish the world,” is expanding its use of Logility Voyager Solutions™ to more regions around the world. Since deploying Logility in North America, Griffith Foods has achieved significant benefits as a result of improved forecast visibility across the organization, realizing better inventory alignment and boosted customer service levels.

Griffith Foods operates a global supply chain that serves customers across multiple channels including retail, quick service, casual dining as well as warehouse clubs and distributors. Increasing this complexity, each product is customized specifically for individual customers. Griffith Foods primarily produces each product in the region it is sold while individual ingredients may be sourced from its global supply chain. These ingredients must make it to the right locations around the world to satisfy the unique demands of each region and each individual customer channel.

The initial rollout in North America enabled a more collaborative environment to drive an improved and streamlined S&OP process across multiple groups including sales, finance, planning and manufacturing. The company decreased working capital while improving service levels and reducing material obsolescence. Following this success, Griffith Foods has deployed Logility across Europe and is currently implementing the solution for Asian and South American operations.

“Our customers expect the highest quality products, exceptional service and new innovations to satisfy the changing and diverse tastes of consumers around the world,” said John McCarville, senior vice president, global supply chain & IT, Griffith Foods. “Our supply chain is critical to cost effectively meet these complex challenges. With Logility Voyager Solutions we have the visibility to accurately plan monthly, weekly and daily by product and customer. Logility allows us to be more strategic and proactive in aligning our sourcing, manufacturing and distribution operations.”

“For Griffith Foods capacity and people must come together at the right time to meet the unique requirements of its growing global customer base,” said Allan Dow, president, Logility. “We are excited to help Griffith Foods achieve greater visibility, synchronize demand and supply, and improve its leverage of inventory and production investments. Logility Voyager Solutions provides a platform for supply chain innovation to help companies turn challenges into opportunities for more profitable growth and service differentiation.”
