• Fivemiletown Creamery

    Management Consulting, Profitability & Factory Efficiency Analysis

The Challenge

Fivemiletown is an 118-year-old creamery which produces both speciality and mass-market cheese. After some tough trading conditions, the creamery was in difficulty and the future was far from certain. The role of our management and supply chain consulting experts was to support the business through this testing time and to put our dairy expertise into practice.

The Strategy

We delivered a root and branch analysis of product profitability and operating costs. This enables a business to have visibility of non-productive ‘value drags’ in its portfolio and allows management to put corrective measures in place. We also launched an exhaustive search for new long-term business partners and supported management through this project.

The Results

The business improved its profitability and was able to find an innovative new structure, whereby the milk pool and the factory asset was maintained and cheese production strengthened, preserving the business for future generations.
