Cost leadership

Continuously improving efficiency is a prerequisite
Cost Leadership is an important reason why for example international customers outsource their chocolate production to Barry Callebaut. The company is continuously improving its operational efficiency by upgrading the technology and achieving higher scale effects through better capacity utilization, by optimizing product flows, logistics and inventory management, as well as by reducing energy consumption and lowering fixed costs.

Project One+
In 2010 Barry Callebaut launched the program “One+”. The aim of this program is to develop a standardized methodology and related tools to increase overall operational efficiency and optimize processes. Meanwhile “One+” has been implemented in nine factories and achieved savings of CHF 10 million. We expect to roll it out to four factories in fiscal year 2013/14. The program helped to increase Barry Callebaut’s operational efficiency.
