Strategic Sourcing Guide to Syrups Procurement

Overview

Several macro changes in the dynamics of overall Food and Beverages as well as Syrups procurement trends are poised to change the business practices and procurement thumb rules. A balanced approach to procurement of Syrups has emerged, where buyers with multiple locations first outsource at individual locations and gradually move to standardize and consolidate the services across facilities.

With advancement in technology, service providers are employing diverse tools in their operations to identify opportunities for optimization and greater collaboration with the customers.

Suppliers have historically gained handsome margin-on-margin by sub-contracting a part of their work to another contractor. However, Buyers are now delving deep into the business models of suppliers and negotiating hard to avoid further sub-contracting. In cases where it is imperative to sub-contract, category managers are employing should-cost models to keep supplier margins on sub-contracting to the minimal.

Category managers need to take note of the potential of these developments and reassess the changes required in their procurement practices.

Syrups Procurement Best Practices

It has become imperative for category managers to remain as agile as possible in terms of their procurement practices. However, it is not always easy to quickly spot and implement alternative practices in a category like Syrups. To help quick decision making, this report advises on several procurement best practices that have worked well for category managers.

For example, 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.

Category managers must explore opportunities to integrate planning and management activities of categories using analytics, to gain better control over category spend. This will also allow them to consolidate their supply base easily, as well as to segment suppliers based on requirements and spend on each supplier.

Buyers require industry-specific services to effectively operate their production facilities. Thus, they should opt for service providers that can offer customization and bring in years of experience in serving the needs of that industry.
