Supplier Collaboration & Innovation Award

Winner: The Kraft Heinz Company

Entry Overview

With a desire to create new sources of value in the supply chain, Kraft Heinz established its Value Added Days programme. This brings together suppliers and internal stakeholders to work together through a global operating model to identify opportunities for generating value and enhancing efficiency in the supply chain. Judges were impressed by the comprehensive nature of the process, which has driven a substantial uplift in productivity and more than doubled the company’s savings pipeline.

Judges’ feedback

“A great initiative and no doubt that all companies can benefit from partnering with, or at least listening more to, their vendors and contractors and working closer together. The challenge is always to get the right functions represented and meet the vendors with an open mind.”
