NEW Lean for FMCGs Guide

LI_leanforfmcgs_quickguide_final_Page_1During Food Manufacture’s webinar on 26th April, we received many questions from manufacturers who were worried about getting value from M&S’ new Lean Audit.

They heard from Jeremy who discussed the pitfalls of not customising your Lean Audit framework for FMCG, which can slow down your rate of return and drive the wrong actions. He also explained how making the right choices and sequencing your improvement activity will give you a competitive advantage…

We’ve turned Jeremy’s top tips and advice from the webinar and his blog series into a must-read ‘FMCG Guide to Lean Audits’ which could help your business profit from the process.

With the support of the LI team, the Bars business unit has made great strides forward with some exceptional results. It has been gratifying to witness the confidence and capability of the people grow paralleling the rise in plant performance. I look forward with great optimism to the continuing journey and an ongoing partnership with LI Europe.

Inspiring the people in our business to understand how they can improve and the business can therefore develop, is an important building block in our drive for improving efficiency within our business. Engaging everyone in the business to realise that we can be better and any little improvement drives down to the bottom line. This has been seen both in the way the staff have engaged and enjoyed the experience and the evidence of reduced costs has helped the business to become more efficient. This process never stops but it is the tools that have been developed by LI Europe that has allowed us to deliver this important work at both our potato pack houses.
