The pioneering cake decorating and baking products company, PME Cake, has embarked upon a major supply chain project to boost service to its customers.
For over 70 years, PME Cake has proudly supplied cake decorating and baking supplies to professionals and enthusiasts. Today, the business offers an extensive range of 2,500 non-food and food lines to customers across 80 countries.
Rishi Patel, Co-owner & Head of Operations, explains the strategic importance of the initiative: “With our heritage in product engineering, we continue to invest heavily in research and product development. As a key area for innovation, our supply chain is essential to satisfy the millions of people that enjoy our products.”
To enhance product availability & supply chain efficiency, PME Cake has partnered with the inventory experts at Slimstock. As part of the initiative to boost operational performance, the cake decorations specialists will roll out the inventory expert’s supply chain optimisation platform, Slim4.
Explaining the decision to partner with the inventory management expert, Rishi states: “As a result of Brexit, PME Cake set up a new EU distribution hub in 2021. This has added a level of complexity to our purchasing function. By helping us to consolidate and optimise bulk purchase orders, Slim4 will allow us to benefit from economies of scale and ensure improved stock availability of stock for UK and EU customers. Ultimately, Slimstock offered a complete option to support the intricacies of our business.”
Will Severn, Head of Sales, goes on to conclude: “As a best-in-class British designer and manufacturer, we at Slimstock are excited to help PME Cake drive innovation throughout their supply chain.”
