Batory Foods Finds the Secret Ingredient to Supply Chain Transformation with JDA
Leading ingredients distributor extends customer-centric focus, replacing manual demand planning and inventory optimization processes with JDA solutions
JDA Software Group, Inc. today announced that Batory Foods, distributor of high quality food ingredients for U.S. food and beverage manufacturers, has selected JDA® Demand and JDA® Fulfillment to support its inventory planning processes across multiple facilities nationwide. Batory Foods’ goal is to ensure it is maintaining high standards of service across its whole supply chain. With JDA, Batory Foods will have more accurate forecasting and inventory in the right distribution centers at the right time. JDA partners MEBC and Cognizant will support this deployment for implementation, consulting and services.
Founded in 1979, Batory Foods is the largest privately held food ingredient distributor in the country. Based in Des Plaines, Illinois., Batory offers the industry’s broadest portfolio of ingredients to U.S. food, beverage and nutritional supplement manufacturers. Equipped with a national system of distribution centers and warehouses, based on best-in-class logistics, Batory strives to speed products to customers’ doors on time, every time. Batory’s experienced sales representatives work with an abiding commitment to excellence in customer service. This approach has contributed to the exponential growth Batory has experienced the past several years.
Batory Foods’ corporate growth trajectory and determined commercial strategy demanded a solid, industry-leading solution to help it sustain and fuel this growth moving forward. In recent years, Batory overhauled its supply chain strategy, and now needs to refine its inventory and fulfillment processes. Batory will soon deploy JDA Demand and JDA Fulfillment to achieve a clearer picture of demand and a more accurate view of inventory needs. These capabilities will allow Batory to more efficiently meet growing customer demands.
“Given the size of our business and numerous shipping points, it’s critical that our inventory and logistics processes are tightly aligned, ensuring the ingredients we supply are in the right distribution centers at the right time,” said Daryl Fisher, Batory Foods. “We chose JDA as our strategic partner to shift us toward proactive resource planning while optimizing inventory and distribution strategies. Batory Foods’ culture is one of best-in-class service to our customers, adding value wherever we can. With our JDA partnership, we expect to considerably expand this core capability.”
“In a fast-moving industry such as food ingredient distribution, it’s especially important to accurately drive replenishment back into the distribution centers and warehouses to meet customer needs in real time,” said Paula Natoli, group vice president, supply chain planning, JDA. “Batory Foods is purposefully tying together its demand and supply planning with its logistics and distribution model, which will boost their efficiency and facilitate accelerated growth.”
