The Group recognises that relationships built on trust and respect with our business partners establish mutually beneficial relations. This includes our suppliers, banks and collaborative associates. We have now started the initial rollout of our new ERP system, which will offer a more efficient means to manage our supplier relationships, including how we purchase materials and serve our customers.
We perform regular inspections and audits and strategic reviews are in place for key suppliers. In accordance with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, only quality approved organisations are used. There is a Group supplier management process in place that promotes a common supply chain strategy split by commodity, driving the business towards fewer, high level, quality suppliers.
