KBC Food+

KBC Food+ supports companies in the food industry, especially in the out-of-home sector, to improve their business results through procurement. We offer pragmatic solutions and ensure that the cost savings will be visible in your financial accounts. Our approaches are tested and proven, price levels are known and access to our network of suppliers also offers entirely new opportunities.

The out-of-home sector, which covers contract catering, food service, hotel business & gastronomy, is in a state of upheaval like only few other sectors. Innovation, enjoyment, sustainability and quality are expected by an audience that has never been more demanding than today. Meeting these demands with a reasonably price range of products and services while at the same time increasing profitability is becoming a major challenge. Professional procurement is therefore playing an increasingly important role.

For many years, KBC has been optimising procurement in highly developed industries such as automotive, agricultural machinery, mechanical- and plant engineering. We have bundled this knowledge and enriched it with explicit experience from the purchasing department of the largest catering company in the world.

Integrated procurement strategy development

First, we analyse your current procurement situation. In a further step, we realign your target system with regard to costs, quality, flexibility and innovation and, depending on the objective, derive any need for action directly.
This enables us to define both the strategy scope (i.e. which components you need and to what extent in the long term) and the different levels of the procurement strategy (e.g. trading groups, technologies, raw materials and supplier deadlines). We apply our tried and tested tools to derive a holistic procurement strategy, whereby our goal is to establish procurement as a value driver in your company through strategically optimal orientation and transparent target contributions up to the retail group level.
