The new project, titled Program Evolution, will achieve the company’s set goals with the implementation of a full suite Enterprise Resource Planning system.
“Program Evolution is a key enabler for the co-op to achieve our primary goal of increasing the farm gate price for our supplier/shareholders, by ensuring our systems and processes are efficient and cost effective, our data is accurate and timely, and that it meets the needs of the business as we transform now and grow in the coming years,” said Gary Helou, MG Managing Director.
“Our Vision is to become the first choice dairy foods company for our farmers, customers and consumers. We have two strategic pillars, Operational Excellence and Innovation and the activities that sit underneath these pillars, like Program Evolution, aim to recalibrate the business to the high growth, high value markets of Asia and the Middle East, to ensure we deliver on our farm gate price goal for shareholders.”
The company expects the completion of the project to result in a reduction of complexity and operating costs across the business.
