As we approach 29 March 2019 there are still many questions to be answered about what Brexit will mean so our September event will focus on bringing Brexit to life from a CPO’s perspective.
Philip Molnar, Chief Procurement & Technical Officer at Britvic will share his insights on the impact that Brexit is having on this internationally recognised business and its supply base. As well as its core markets of GB, Ireland and France, Britvic brands are distributed to over 50 countries. Britvic has a portfolio of famous brands including Robinsons, Tango, J2O, drench, MiWadi, Ballygowan, Teisseire, Fruité, Maguary and DaFruta. In addition, in GB and Ireland, the company produces and sells a number of PepsiCo’s famous soft drinks brands, including Pepsi, 7UP, SoBe and Mountain Dew, under exclusive agreements with PepsiCo.
Although Brexit raises operational and financial challenges which Philip will share and elaborate upon, it also is driving his Procurement team to “unshackle” their minds and creative juices to look at new sources of supply, changing specifications and challenging the “business as usual” mindset.
Whatever form Brexit will take, all is not lost given thought, motivation and a forward thinking approach.
