FuturMaster’s supply chain solution: industries

Ideal for overcoming challenges in the food industry, cosmetics industry and consumer goods industry

Food industry

Food and beverage manufacturers face a variety of challenges: volatile markets, quality and environmentally conscious customers, growing number of distribution channels and products with best before dates. Rising manufacturing costs, internal organizational constraints, and silo thinking must be dealt with. In this context, supply chain agility and end-to-end planning from raw material to finished product are critical to success.

Cosmetics industry

Cosmetics companies operate in a constantly changing environment: new products, promotions, additional distribution channels and fast-growing trend markets. Demanding end customers need to be planned for in an ongoing and agile manner. Results directly from the point-of-sale need to be analyzed quickly and appropriate actions initiated. A coordinated plan that enables marketing, product development and sales on the one hand and production, as well as distribution on the other hand to make the right decisions is critical to success.

Consumer goods industry

Companies in the consumer goods sector are currently facing intense competition and must constantly adapt and deal efficiently with short-term product life cycles. End consumer expectations are changing rapidly and new trends need to be identified and exploited in a timely manner.

Haribo, L’Oréal and Heineken: three global companies rely on FuturMaster

Haribo is a German manufacturer of sweets such as gummy bears and liquorice based in Bonn. Haribo has 19 factories and 10 distribution centers around the world. The company employs around 6,000 people worldwide and exports to over a hundred countries. To keep up with demand for its popular candies and become more of a global player, Haribo has reorganized its supply chain in recent years. This has also necessitated the introduction of new software to manage this supply chain: in France, Haribo has already been using FuturMaster for several years and is achieving impressive results.
