Integrated Supply Chain (ISC) brings together the central procurement, production, logistics and planning functions in Olympic Brewery and the Carlsberg Group under one roof.
ISC manages the brewery network, handles the procurement processes, sets the standards for brewing technology and logistics services and ensures end-to-end planning through the entire supply chain.
By integrating these functions, we improve the utilization of our assets, standardize and streamline processes, increase speed and efficiency and improve customer service.
The key categories managed by Procurement are raw materials, packaging materials, operations and services. The role of Procurement is to ensure a steady supply of input, manage all supply risks, negotiate prices and lower the complexity in our supplies as well as to optimize terms and conditions and also benefit from longer lasting relationships with our suppliers.
The Production/Manufacturing & Technology function in Olympic Brewery covers the areas at the core of what we do: brewing beer!
The Production/Manufacturing & Technology function in ISC is responsible for the brewery network. It ensures a steady supply of goods, controls the quality of our beers and maintains the brewing equipment in the most efficient way.
By bringing together our engineering expertise from Carlsberg Groups’ breweries all around the world we are able to share the very best practices - from the beer recipes and Lean implementations to the health and safety policies.
The Logistics and Customer Supply Chain functions are responsible for distributing the products to the customers, so that they are always available when the consumers are ready to buy them – whether that is in the supermarket or in a bar, pub or restaurant.
The function optimizes warehouse networks, distribution and transportation flows, full end-to-end planning in order to make sure we move the beer from our breweries to our customers in the most efficient and environmentally friendly manner.
Seeking to provide the widest possible national coverage, easy access to our products and exceptional customer service, Olympic Brewery features 4 distribution centers in Thessaloniki, Ritsona, Aspropirgos and Crete.
The Planning function is the end-to-end support to the whole Supply Chain, reaching out from our customer's shelves and counters to our suppliers' complete network.
Planning ensures that we have the necessary products in stock in our warehouses, that we produce the right products in the right quantities, and that we have the right amount of raw materials at all times.
