Leading independent catering supplier looks to AGR to unlock additional value for customers and strengthen their already impressive service levels 

Since 1947, Hugh Jordan has provided service, innovation and excellence to the Catering and Hospitality Industry.  They strive to help their clients excel in food preparation and presentation through offering the very best in professional catering products. Satisfying the needs of a sector that has had to adapt to tough conditions makes effective and efficient supply chain management a priority.

Exemplifying their leadership in their field, Ireland’s largest independent catering supplier’s success is built on innovation, service and value.    The recent COVID crisis and its impact on their customers’ businesses heightened the need to harness dynamic information across suppliers, carriers, stock and customer demand in order to continue to provide unbeatable product availability and guidance to satisfy their clients’ needs.

Hugh Jordan will implement AGR software to provide a complete platform for forecasting, demand planning and supply chain automation.    This will help the supply chain team to address volatility in the sector as well as to improve product availability and create efficiencies.

Michael Starkey, Head of Finance and Operations at Hugh Jordan explains:

“Our customers depend on us to provide them not just with the right prices, they need us to be able to respond quickly to their changing needs and advise them where necessary.   This requires our planning, replenishment and supply chain management processes to be efficient and precise”.

Explaining the decision to partner with AGR, Michael adds:

“AGR took the time to understand our business as well as helping us to identify areas where improvements can be made”.

Adam Cavanagh, UK Director at AGR Dynamics, concludes:

“This is an exciting project and it is a pleasure to be helping the business optimise and enhance their capabilities.  As an organisation that shares our passion for exceptional service we’re delighted to be working with Hugh Jordan.”
