Overview

A.G. Barr p.l.c. is a FTSE 250 UK based, branded consumer goods business focused on growth. The company was established over 140 years ago in Scotland.

A soft drinks business at its core, A.G. Barr offers a diverse and differentiated portfolio of great tasting brands such as the iconic IRN-BRU, market-leading RUBICON exotic fruit juice drinks, and the Scottish spring water STRATHMORE.

The Problem

The goal was to achieve service levels above 99%.

Very high service levels to supermarket chains are critical in the soft drinks industry. Over-and under-stocking due to constant production re-prioritisation was a severe problem in not getting to over 99% service at A.G. Barr.

Managed Supply Planning

In 2017, supported by Scala Consultancy and O8SupplyChain, A.G. Barr started a managed path to Demand Driven production with DDMRP II. Achieving production stability was the prime driver for adopting DDMRP. Strategic change was driven from the top.
