Huels Procurement team, one that is still relatively new within the company, makes sure we purchase goods and services that are best for the business.
Whilst procurement functions are known for driving down cost, for us, there's more to it than that. When we're buying from suppliers, we make sure our partners are ethical, sustainable, efficient, and can provide enough quantities for our increasing demands!
This team works cross-functionally with a number of departments, including NPD, Nutrition, Technical, Finance, and Demand Planning. We speak with our suppliers and co-manufacturers pretty much daily, as well as visiting their sites based all around the world.
