Food & Beverages
At Oakdene Hollins, we have wide-ranging, in-depth experience of food and drink manufacturing, retail and hospitality sectors. We recognise the complex challenges of food and drink supply chains, and the overarching need to offer a joined up approach to sustainability, business efficiency and profitability.
Working with companies of all sizes across supply chains, we identify wasteful activities, streamline processes, and improve water and energy efficiency, proving that making decisions with sustainability in mind can unlock valuable bottom-line savings. Whether we give support to implementing a specific improvement project, or analysis of current operational 'hotspots', we tailor our services to each client.
Our team of consultants combine technical research with practical insight in order to drive commercial benefits through sustainable thinking. Our breadth of experience allows us to identify best practice across the industry and two recent major pieces of research have done just that: 'the role of Lean thinking in increasing resource efficiency in the UK food and drink supply chain' and 'Best Environmental Management Practice (BEMP) for the Food and Beverage Manufacturing Sector' for the European Commission's Joint Research Centre; both available below.
