GS1 has formed a retail grocery advisory board which will focus on the perfect order and digital DNA.
The board aims to provide better customer experience whilst improving efficiencies throughout the supply chain. Members include major retailers (ASDA, Boots, Co-op, Morrisons, Ocado, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Waitrose) and manufacturers (Coca Cola Enterprises, Dairy Crest, Kellogg’s, Mondelez, Müller, Nestlé, PepsiCo P&G and Unilever) in the UK.
Key supply chain issues
The board will look in depth at key supply chain issues affecting retailers and manufacturers, including how to accelerate change, increase sustainability, reduce waste and achieve mutual productivity. The perfect order project focuses on the order-to-cash process and improving efficiencies by establishing a more synchronised process for inbound logistics. The Digital DNA project focuses on ways of improving customer experience through data quality, an area with the potential to generate £2bn by improving data in the value chain.
