Nando's is a South African multinational restaurant chain that specialises in Portuguese flame-grilled peri-peri style chicken. 

The Challenge: 

Having delivered savings in the past, Procure4 were brought in to challenge long-term thinking and supply chain solutions to provide further savings opportunities to the Nando’s Board. 
 

The Solution: 

Procure4 assembled a dedicated team to create jointly agreed category by category approach strategies to ensure maximum delivery within the shortest period of time. 

The Results: 

Amongst other strategies, the Procure4 team introduced eAuction methodology to Nando’s, successfully run within strategic and non- strategic categories. 
“Procure4 were able to challenge both ourselves and our suppliers to drive significant and measurable cost savings in our food, beverage and supplies and services spend. They are professional and thorough in their approach.” 
- Darrell Osborne, Commercial Director Nandos

Challenge 

Procure4 completed a cost reduction project for Nando’s in 2005, finishing with savings 14% ahead of the agreed target. 
 
Nando’s re-engaged Procure4 3 years later to undertake a cost reduction review of categories within food & beverage, property and in-directs. 
 
Procure4 were brought in to challenge long-term thinking and supply chain solutions and to bring opportunities to the main board for consideration. 

Approach 

Procure4 assembled a dedicated team to create jointly agreed category by category approach strategies to ensure maximum delivery within the shortest period of time. 
 
The categories included strategic or brand focused areas such as; chips, cooking oil, pitta breads, beers, printed napkins, catering equipment and furniture. 
 
Other non-strategic areas included; wholesale food lines, waste collection, couriers, cash collection, grounds & plant maintenance and property repairs & maintenance. 

Results 

The Procure4 team introduced eAuction methodology to Nando’s and this technique was successfully run within strategic and non- strategic categories. The overall delivery of this approach represented c33% of the project delivery. 
 
The diverse project tackled areas that Nando’s had traditionally reviewed and ‘green-field’ areas. Within both areas the results exceeded the expectations of the Nando’s team having challenged their historical thinking and actions. 

Testimonial from Nandos 

Procure4 were able to challenge both ourselves and our suppliers to drive significant and measurable cost savings in our food, beverage and supplies and services spend. They are professional and thorough in their approach.
