I recently co-authored a Hot Topics Briefing on Insights for Growing a Global Supply for Supply Chain Scene that provided insights on the challenges and opportunities when growing a global supply chain. In the Brief, we discuss the need for a clear understanding of how regions differ from the domestic landscape, including (but not limited to) infrastructure, sources of supply, tastes, culture, menu development, ingredient compliance and political and legal climate. It’s imperative to take nothing for granted when planning a global expansion. We identified six key areas that set the foundation for a successful venture:
- Entry strategy
- Translating the brand
- Registration and licensing
- Local sourcing
HAVI has developed a tip sheet that takes a deeper dive into these six areas that provides a focus on what needs to be considered when moving from a local to global foodservice supply chain. I think you will find it worth the read.
We know that to keep up, supply chain planning processes must be data driven, flexible and responsive. These attributes are particularly important as supply chains grow increasingly complex with new areas of development like global expansion. HAVI has spent decades working with clients to manage their supply chains more efficiently, grow their businesses and meet continually evolving consumer demands. We look forward to tapping into that expertise to help your company develop new strategies that meet the ever-changing market demands now and into the future.
