Sustainable Sourcing for Consumer Goods

Sustainable Sourcing for Consumer Goods

The Challenge: sustainable, efficient sourcing.

A large consumer goods company is re-evaluating its contracts with tea suppliers. To determine which contracts to renew, the company needs quantifiable metrics for each grower within the cooperative. The ultimate goal is to balance yield and quality of the supplier with environmental impact.

Some outcomes we are co-creating:

  • Providing quantified production measures in order to evaluate and negotiate better supplier contracts
  • Developing management protocols for quality-optimized sustainable production

How We Do It

We are relying on our suite of interconnected software programs to generate measures analyzing the quality, volume, stability, and sustainability of each grower. The diagnostics can also tell the client how many total acres of fields to contract to meet its goals.
