The Weetabix Food Company has signed an agreement with collaborative business commerce solutions provider, Ariba.

 

As part of ongoing efforts to reduce costs and improve profits, the company will use Ariba’s cloud-based offerings to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of its procurement process and better manage relationships with key suppliers.

 

Driving best-value procurement

 

“Weetabix has a strong reputation for its commitment to product quality,” said Anthony Bowdidge, head of procurement at The Weetabix Food Company. “In order to maintain our standards, we must identify the right partners to deliver the goods and services we need and negotiate best-value agreements that allow us to optimise our cost structure and trading relationships. Ariba provides us with technology and best-practice processes through which we can achieve these goals.”

 

The Weetabix Food Company will use Ariba Sourcing On Demand to consolidate spend, identify opportunities for savings and drive them to the bottom line in both the UK and US.
