Bright Blue Foods

A Scanmarket Customer Case

Introduction: About Bright Blue Foods

Bright Blue Foods (BBF) is one of the UK’s leading cake and chilled dessert manufacturers with five bakeries based in the UK and Poland. BBF develops and manufactures an extensive range of high-quality ambient cake products across several different categories including Celebration cakes, fruit pies and tarts, chocolate enrobed cakes, Christmas cakes and mince pies. Their newly acquired wide variety of chilled desserts extend their sweet treat offering to also include cheesecakes, sponge puddings and crumbles. BBF’s aim is to meet customer demands and deliver the right, high quality, products to market on time.

Solution: Consultancy support has been paramount

BBF initially selected Scanmarket as their eSourcing Solution provider due to the extreme efficiency and ease of use of the system. However, what has really been the defining strength of the Scanmarket offering in BBF’s case is the agile, multi-faceted consultancy support. Scanmarket’s eSourcing consultants are former procurement high-flyers, with a wealth of experience running sourcing events, managing categories and dealing with daily life in a procurement role, meaning that they fully understand the sourcing challenges and objectives from the perspective of their customers. This is paramount, especially when changes in an organization require immediate, informed, bespoke procurement support from their providers to assist those changes.

Recently, BBF has successfully completed a large-scale M&A initiative, doubling the size of the business.

Results:

"As a result of the instructor’s deep procurement knowledge, expertise and excellent support, the procurement team quickly adopted the initiative and committed to a very ambitious project plan of events. Several auctions have now taken place realizing savings across the portfolios.
