The Australian Food and Grocery Council (AFGC) have released a Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) whitepaper to assist their members in raising industry standards. GRA have been commissioned to write the S&OP whitepaper by the AFGC.
According to AFGC, processes such as Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) are business critical and are important to fulfilling shopper requirements. The S&OP report is the first step in driving industry improvements for food and grocery manufacturers and suppliers.
The process outlined in the whitepaper provides details on a key vehicle for cross functional disciplines within a business to work towards the common goal of creating new values, through higher alignment and co-created solutions.
In AFGC’s view, the Australian Food and Grocery Council chose to work with GRA in developing the white paper because of their strong track record in demand, inventory and supply chain optimisation. The whitepaper is available to the AFGC members.
