The Food and Beverage Commodity Procurement Solution - Commodity XL

Raw Material and Commodity Procurement

Food and beverage companies have faced rapidly rising and volatile commodity prices over the last few years which can harm profitability, shareholder value, and credibility with analysts.

The traditional methods of handling rising raw material and energy costs, such as substituting cheaper materials in products and raising prices, might prove necessary, but do not take advantage of commodity management best practices to optimize margins. For organizations to be successful, the approach used by the Purchasing Department must be revamped from static "buy to budget" to a more proactive "market-based" procurement and risk management program.
