Peanut Butter is an essential part of the Food and Beverages category which includes all spend relating to raw food and beverages required to prepare meals for clients and staff. If the food has been provided as a meal, then it should be excluded from this category.
A changing ecosystem within the Food and Beverages market also affects the procurement process, cost dynamics and supplier attractiveness for the buyers of Peanut Butter. A balanced approach to procurement of Peanut Butter has emerged, where buyers with multiple locations first outsource at individual locations and gradually move to standardize and consolidate the services across facilities.The category has historically lagged in tech adoption due to inadequate skillsets of majority of workforce and the perennial requirement to reduce facilities related cost. Therefore, suppliers who have demonstrated technological prowess to achieve efficiencies are being preferred over traditional vendors.Many companies are looking to engage Peanut Butter supplies in a long-term partnership to derive the highest ROI possible and creating an environment of trust and collaboration that allows for new optimization strategies.
The report discusses in detail the best practices that have served well the category managers responsible for Peanut Butter procurement. For example, Buyers must ensure the participation and collaboration of all related cross-functional teams (procurement, electrical, engineering, and housekeeping) in category management and planning activities. This is crucial, as these teams will be the primary end-users of the services offered by suppliers, and this step will ensure consistency in services. Buyers should set a baseline against which the performance of suppliers can be benchmarked along with setting measurable/quantifiable KPIs. Defined KPIs provides suppliers with clarity on the scope. Besides setting standards for operations, pricing, and performance, KPIs must provide tangible goals in terms of the quality of solutions. Buyers must clearly define clauses pertaining to the ownership of sub-contracting services that are not a part of their preferred suppliers' portfolios. This will ensure consistency in the services of sub-contracted firms as well as protection of confidential data.
