Lavazza Brews an Innovative Supply Chain with JDA
Italian coffee roaster Lavazza
is no stranger to innovation, tackling
its own 'moonshot' of bringing its "ISSpresso" capsule-based espresso
coffee machine to space (developed in partnership with Argotec and the
European Space Agency) as one of many ways it continues to innovate for
today's demanding consumer. As innovation and technology are strategic
enablers to Lavazza to execute its vision, it has selected SaaS (News - Alert)-based
supply chain planning solutions from JDA
Software, Inc. to give it a powerful competitive edge as it
revamps its global supply chain.
Established in 1895 in Turin, Lavazza currently operates in more than 90
countries and has more than 3,000 employees through subsidiaries and
distributors. Among the world's most important roasters, it is estimated
that more than 27 billion cups of Lavazza coffee are consumed worldwide
every year. Lavazza operates in business segments that include at home,
away-from-home and office coffee service, always with a focus on
innovation in consumption technologies and systems.
Lavazza is a global player facing the challenges of operating on a
worldwide scale with a strong focus on organic growth, globalization,
brand strengthening, and further expansion of its operating margin and
profitability. To support its vision and growth strategy, Lavazza has
selected several JDA supply chain solutions, including JDA®
Enterprise Supply Planning and JDA®
Sequencing, to help it build one globally synchronized plan that
senses and responses profitability and quickly to supply and demand
volatility across the 90 countries in which it operates.
"Innovation and passion are qualities we inherited from our founder
Luigi Lavazza, stemming from our 120-year history. We look at our
business processes in a holistic way as an enabler to support our
customers' satisfaction and organic growth. Today, having a flexible and
integrated supply chain is a must to achieve these goals and to be
competitive," said Patrizia Tedesco, Group CIO, Lavazza. "We choose JDA
as a partner to support the innovation of our production planning
process for a number of reasons: the breadth, depth and agility of their
solution that can easily integrated in our ERP, their strong expertise
in the supply chain domain, the strong references that JDA were able to
share with us and the unique competences of the project management team
that will support the implementation."
Lavazza will deploy JDA in the cloud for an agile, complete and modular
SaaS-based supply chain planning solution that will support its key
production processes, while helping them optimize constraints, margins
and costs across production, distribution, inventory and procurement,
all leading to improving servicelevels. With JDA Enterprise Supply
Planning, Lavazza can make real-time updates and optimize plans on
demand, while JDA Sequencing will take their production scheduling to
the next level by simultaneously balancing customer service, cost and
utilization, while respecting complex manufacturing constraints and
"In order to remain competitive, organizations need to balance cost
savings and profitability, while keeping pace with customer demands in
real-time. A robust supply chain planning solution that weaves in
innovation to address these requirements is key to helping digitally
transform our customers' supply chains," said Johan Reventberg,
president, EMEA, JDA. "We look forward to working with Lavazza to
connect their demand and supply signals in such a way that they can make
the most actionable and profitable business decisions to deliver the
utmost customer experience across all the markets in which they operate."

About Lavazza Group
Established in 1895 in Turin, the Italian roaster has been owned by the
Lavazza family for four generations. Among the world's most important
roasters, the Group currently operates in more than 90 countries through
subsidiaries and distributors, exporting 63% of its production. Lavazza
employs a total of about 3,000 people with a turnover of more than €2.0
billion in 2017. Lavazza invented the concept of blending - or in other
words the art of combining different types of coffee from different
geographical areas - in its early years and this continues to be a
distinctive feature of most of its products.
The company also has over 25 years' experience in production and sale of
portioned coffee systems and products. It was the first Italian business
to offer capsule espresso systems.
Lavazza operates in all business segments: at home, away-from-home and
office coffee service, always with a focus on innovation in consumption
technologies and systems. Lavazza has been able to develop its brand
awareness through important partnerships perfectly in tune with its
brand internationalization strategy, such as those in the world of sport
with the Grand Slam tennis tournaments, and those in fields of art and
culture with prestigious museums like New York's Guggenheim Museum, the
Peggy Guggenheim Collection Venice, and The Hermitage State Museum in
St. Petersburg, Russia.
As the company continues on a strategic globalization path, the Lavazza
Group has acquired local jewels in key markets such as France's Carte
Noire (2015), Denmark's Merrild (2016) and North America's Kicking Horse
Coffee (2017). Additionally, in 2017 the Group amplified its
distribution reach with the acquisition of France's Espresso Service
Proximité, Italy's Nims and in 2018 Lavazza acquired the Australian Blue
Pod Coffee Co.
