Strategic Sourcing Guide to Cherries Procurement

Overview

The market for Environmental Goods and its sub-segments such as Cherries are at an interesting intersection. Suppliers are disrupting traditional business models with new offerings and terms. These disruptions are also necessitating buyers to relook their procurement practices and standards with respect to supplier selection and price benchmarking activities.

Several factors in the value chain of Cherries, such as labor cost, logistics, and energy costs are driving up the procurement costs. Additionally, engagement of suppliers who are still operating with outdated assets, technologies and processes is also increasing the cost for buyers.

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.

Trends like these and many others discussed in this report are necessitating a relook at the way Cherries is procured and the procurement cost saving opportunities that exist.

Cherries Procurement Best Practices

The report discusses in detail the best practices that have served well the category managers responsible for Cherries procurement.

For example, While competitive bidding as a cost optimization tool is extremely potent but should be carefully deployed only when there is no significant differentiation among Cherries suppliers.

Strong R&D focus is the sign of a supplier committed to enhancing the quality and cost proposition of its solutions. Buyers should collaborate with such suppliers for development of low-cost but highly efficiency products that can bring their OPEX down.

Buyers need to employ robust should-cost models and total cost of ownership models to aid Cherries supplier selection and pricing negotiations.
