Supply Chain Design

LBB helps companies in choosing the right design of their supply chain. A supply chain design provides an organisation with the control parameters for high performance supply chains. This design also anchors other important values, such as product quality & food safety, halal, sustainability, and risk & reputation management.

Procurement Strategy & Design.
We assist companies in organising their purchasing function, namely their procurement policy, purchasing organisation, purchasing processes, and purchasing control. We furthermore coach organisations in professionalising procurement, shaping supplier and contract management, and streamlining procurement cooperation between organisations. A social contract, a separate contract in addition to the legal contract, is a new trend to establish with strategic suppliers covering how do we deal with each other in the day-to-day affairs, on matters such as sustainability, but also during a crisis.

Supply Chain Strategy & (Re)design.
We work with clients in agriculture, food, cosmetics, fashion, industrial and logistics industry to delivering innovative supply chain strategies. We help companies reorganise their supply chain operations into a harmonious performance. In our supply chain (re)designs we ensure strategic fit and effective alignment between product-market requirements and supply chain design parameters. The economic impact of Covid-19 as well as sustainability regulations forces industries to redesign their sourcing, manufacturing, and distribution channels to create robust and resilient supply chains.

Digitalisation of Supply Chains.
We help companies in their digital supply chain transformation, covering topics such as supply chain integration, security, visibility, automation, and use of big data. We work with clients from strategy up to implementation of digital supply chains. Some of our latest projects have been using blockchain technology, but also simple technologies leveraging mobile phones for text messaging.

Halal Strategy.
Our halal specialists help organisations in halal certification strategy, design of the halal assurance system, setting up of the internal halal committee, assessment of materials, and coaching in the implementation of the halal assurance system up to certification. We furthermore provide halal advisory services to your internal halal committee on a continuous basis. We have been advisor to food multinationals, cosmetics multinationals, international logistics service providers, and port authorities. Our advisors have extensive experience with halal standards in Asia, Middle East and Europe as well as the international halal standards under OIC/SMIIC.

Halal Supply Chain Strategy & (Re)design.
As halal is moving towards a halal supply chain and value chain approach, it is essential to address halal throughout the entire supply chain. LBB has been privileged working for leading local and multinational brand owners designing their halal supply chains in both Muslim (majority) and non-Muslim countries. We have extensive experience with the food, cosmetics,  homecare, and pharmaceutical industry. Our halal supply chain designs are based on extensive research, continuous dialogue with leading halal authorities, and working together with visionary brand owners that want to embrace halal into their supply chain and business value chain.

Halal Risk & Reputation Design and Crisis Management.
We help our clients in their halal risk & reputation design and make better decisions during a halal crisis. Halal crisis management is very different from a contamination issue. It requires specific actions, communication, and collaboration under extreme time pressure, in order to protect your corporate reputation.
