Jacobs Douwe Egberts’ Push for Supply Chain Excellence

January 23, 2024

In the dynamic world of supply chain management, no two operations are alike. The variations are striking, even within the same organization. While some companies opt for decentralization, Jacobs Douwe Egberts (JDE) takes a distinctive, centralized approach to elevate its supply chain strategy.

We invite you to an insightful evening during which John Bakker, Global Supply Chain Transformation Lead at JDE, will unravel the approach of maintaining JDE's top-notch supply chain through a remarkable program known as the Supply Chain Operating System (SCOS). This innovative approach encompasses a comprehensive suite of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), strategic goals, and maturity levels that harmonize/standardize regional offices of JDE Peet's, enabling them to work towards common objectives while retaining the benefits of market diversity.

During a unique Vision Dinner on January 23rd, you'll have the chance to learn from John's experience in handling these challenges first-hand. Plus, there will be ample opportunities for networking with other executives, both during the dinner and afterward, as this session is organized as part of the Smart Industry Network Netherlands (SINN) program 2024

  • Small scaled peer session
  • Open dialogue by means of the Chatham House Rule
