As General Mills continues to position itself to win in a fast-paced, complex marketplace, we must continually assess our capabilities and ways of working.
General Mills Europe & Australia Region is investing in building a centre of excellence for Supply Chain in our UK Uxbridge Office that will help us enhance our capabilities across all areas of the region’s supply chain.
The core Regional Team is divided into 4 functions : Customer, Demand, Supply and Physical Logistics. The overall focus of this team is to improve our supply chain capabilities through a program of simplification, standardisation and automation, whilst enhancing the skills and capabilities of the people within those teams across the region to deliver better performance and business benefits.
Within the Customer workstream the vision is to create strong customer teams to help drive business performance by taking our people from transactional data tasks to value add customer relationship management through systems automation, actionable information availability and capabilities development.
The 3 pillars to support this are linked to driving operational efficiency, improved reporting for better visibility of information, and training and development of the teams.
