Strategic Sourcing Guide to Brussels Sprouts Procurement

Overview

A changing ecosystem within the Environmental Goods market also affects the procurement process, cost dynamics and supplier attractiveness for the buyers of Brussels Sprouts. Regulatory changes are taking place more frequently and the changes impact multiple functions within an organization. Alignment of procurement practices and decisions with all the new regulations has now become highly challenging, especially when category managers are responsible to centrally procure for multiple regions with different regulations.

Many suppliers are trying to enhance the efficiencies and productivity within their operations through investment in new technologies and an overhaul of processes. Some of these initiatives are likely to influence their cost structure adversely till the time they recover their investments. However, a successful implementation of these programs can benefit them with a better cost proposition in the longer run.

The global industry has seen a gradual increase in labor cost due to several factors, such as shortage of a trained workforce, increase in minimum wages, regulations around employee benefits and declining appeal for what have been traditionally called unskilled jobs. As the employee expenses increase, suppliers are compelled to pass some of this increase to their buyers by charging higher prices.
