Food service supply chain specialist ArrowStream has announced a partnership with Le Duff America, who is owned by France-based Groupe Le Duff.
The group serves more than 1 million customers daily at its nearly 2,000 bakery-cafés worldwide.
Le Duff America (LDA) has licensed ArrowStream’s market-leading OnDemand technology to support vital foodservice supply chain activities and optimize supply chain performance for brands such as la Madeleine Country French Café.
LDA will leverage the suite of OnDemand technology services to help evaluate critical supply chain data, identify new suppliers for sourcing, and execute quicker supply chain decisions that impact day-to-day operations.
“OnDemand is going to provide the supply chain intelligence we need and the tools and data necessary for my procurement team to operate at their best,” said Mike Cobern, Senior Director of Purchasing at LDA.
“Making sure our bakery-cafés receive the right product, at the right price, at the right time is our top priority, and OnDemand will allow us to do this efficiently and ensure opportunities are not missed.”
LDA is the latest foodservice operator to partner with ArrowStream, joining a portfolio of customers that have recently added Zaxby’s, Dairy Queen, Canadian Dairy Queen Co-Op, and Good Times Burgers, among others.
“We’re thrilled LDA has joined the growing number of restaurant chains that leverage OnDemand’s solutions to manage the complexity and growth within their supply chain,” said Jeff Dorr, Chief Customer Officer, ArrowStream. “We strive to provide the technology and tools our customers need to address industry-specific challenges and ensure ongoing, super-charged performance.
“Having unified data on spend analysis, sourcing, contract management, and suppliers, enable our customers to achieve real business transformation and game-changing benefits.”
