Vendor Managed Inventory

Success Stories on Vendor Management Inventory (VMI)

Our VMI Track Record:

Among the many supply chain initiatives taking place in today’s world, Vendor-Management Inventory (VMI) has become an increasingly effective process and business model to help organizations share risk and, most importantly, ensure a better experience in their supply chain management. Organizations thrive most when they can reduce downtimes in their processes to the barest minimum, leading to the timely release of products into the ever increasing and competitive markets. This has been an impressive experience of some of our key customers such as;

  • Nigerian Bottling Company (NBC)
  • Nigerian Breweries Plc (NB)
  • Friesland Foods Campina (WAMCO)
  • De-United Foods Industries (DUFIL)
  • International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA)
  • SUNTORY Foods
  • National Veterinary Research Institute (NVRI)
  • GSK
  • Unilever PLC

Why Use Our VMI

There are unique sets of challenges usually faced by the supply chain of Food and Beverage industries, ranging from quality of materials, to protracted delivery lead times, with the attendant price instability. Positioning VMI with these customers has brought about sustained and ready stock availability, reduced uncertainty of quality of materials input into production processes and lowered the general costs.

Value to Clients Under Our VMI System

Companies such as NBC, NB & DUFIL have been under our Vendor Management system since 2018. These Companies, with their manufacturing plants situated in several locations in the country, now enjoy more efficient supply chain management, resulting in better manufacturing planning experiences, with lower risks of stock outs. Katchey has continued to offer them premium quality reagents, media and consumables over the years, and this guarantees the integrity of their laboratory results. Prices are also stabilized over an agreed period, thus managing the challenges of price instability due to instability in foreign exchange rates and inflation.
