Sisson will explain to the online seminar, organised by the Food Manufacture Group, how engaging the team has proved a vital component of its lean manufacturing strategy.
“Over the years, our lean approach has delivered significant improvements to our growth and performance,” Sisson told FoodManufacture.co.uk in advance of the webinar sponsored by Lauras International.
‘A targeted structured approach’
“Within this, the Lean Environment programme has been developed to deliver a targeted, structured approach to environmental performance improvement across the Greencore Group,” she added.
“Through engagement of local site teams and the implementation of techniques to map, measure and resolve environmental impacts we have seen year on reductions to our utility usage, emissions and effluent totals.”
M&S head of responsible sourcing and packaging and Plan A
Joining the Greencore boss to discuss lean and green manufacturing and evaluation processes will be Louise Nicholls, Marks & Spencer (M&S), head of responsible sourcing and packaging and Plan A and Jeremy Praud, partner Lauras International.
The M&S boss will focus on lean and green validation processes for suppliers used by the retailer and how such approaches can deliver benefits for all involved throughout the supply chain.
Each speaker will deliver a short presentation on their perspective of the business and ethical benefits of lean and green manufacturing and sourcing before taking part in a panel discussion.
