Business challenge story
Operating from 14 subsidiaries worldwide, Ornua has sales and marketing teams working in-market across all four corners of the globe—from Algiers to Beijing to Lagos and LA. Ornua has pre-packing and blending facilities located in Germany, the UK, the USA and the Middle East. Headquartered in Dublin, Ornua exports to over 116 countries with annualized sales of over EUR1.8 billion. The co-operative’s key strategic areas of focus are: brand growth; new product development; in-market expansion; capital expenditure and mergers and acquisitions; and route to market.
Group subsidiaries in the UK, Spain, Germany and North America pack, distribute and market a wide selection of branded products, dairy ingredients and specialty food items of both Irish and non-Irish origin.
At a time when the cost of goods is rising and margins are tightening, companies like Ornua want to help ensure that timely and accurate information is flowing through a centralized supply chain. Due to the perishable nature of its products, it is also important for Ornua to improve processing and delivery times by eliminating manual processes from the supply chain.
With a business community comprised of hundreds of suppliers and customers across 116 countries, Ornua recognized the need to build a real-time, electronic commerce element into its supply chain as a means of growing its global business. As the company moved from a legacy environment to a real-time enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, the challenge was to integrate its diverse range of suppliers and customers with a broad set of requirements, demands, and technology environments.
