General Mills UK, which has a track record of double digit growth with a market leading portfolio that includes Häagen-Dazs, Old El Paso, Green Giant, Betty Crocker, Nature Valley and Jus-Rol, has been using the Model Logic Cost to Serve system for a number of years.
The system enables General Mills UK, which is part of the world’s sixth largest food company, to make accurate identification of costs from the international sourcing of products right through to final delivery to the retailer by apportioning shipping, transport and warehouse activity costs at case level.
This is a very comprehensive, detailed system that has enabled us to gain a better understanding of our cost to deliver to customers and drive improvements!’ says Shaun Campbell, Distribution Planner at General Mills
The system is a bespoke development tailored specifically to General Mills UK’s operation, and is run on a monthly basis to enable the monitoring of operational costs. The system also has the capability to be run ‘off line’ for the comparison of more strategic scenarios.
General Mills UK & Ireland is one of the fastest growing food companies in the market and was recently ranked for the 4th year running in the Top 50 Best Workplaces in the UK and is also proud to be consistently named in the Sunday Times Top 100 Companies to Work For.
