The global spread of the coronavirus has affected many enterprises across various industries including that of the food processing industry. Specifically, supply chains in the industry sector are disrupted keeping businesses vigilant in strengthening and advancing their supply chain capabilities. This is what the global dairy manufacturer GRB Dairy Foods did to ensure that the company succeeds amidst the pandemic by adopting intelligent technologies for maximum productivity and profitability.
GRB Dairy Foods, a dairy major and a host of F&B offerings with a presence across the Asia Pacific, Middle East, Europe, and North America, has tapped SAVIC Technologies as its technology partner in deploying the next-generation, intelligent ERP business suite SAP S/4HANA.
Known for its top-class, innovative products including the first “Granulated Ghee”, GBR Dairy Foods has decided to migrate from its legacy ERP platform to completely synchronise its business processes and end-to-end visibility in stock tracking along its supply chain. The company has chosen SAVIC Technologies Pvt Ltd as its end-to-end technology partner for the SAP S/4HANA migration after recognising the intelligent ERP’s capabilities in ensuring quality management control, business operations automation, and quick adoption to unique customer requirements.
Aside from the 100 percent business processes synchronisation and 360-degree visibility in stock tracking along its supply chain, GRB Dairy Foods has also achieved a 20 percent surge in daily dispatches.
Senthilkumar S, Managing Director at SAVIC Technologies shared how SAP S/4HANA promotes business continuity. He said:
“SAP S/4HANA unlocks the true business potential of an enterprise in a digital, networked economy.”

GRB Dairy will leverage SAP S/4HANA to realise the company’s expansion objectives and ensure business continuity in the time of COVID-19. With a workforce of over 1,000, the dairy enterprise based in Tamil Nadu, India has a goal of automating and streamlining mundane, tedious tasks for enhanced profitability and workplace efficiency. The company has identified that the key issue restricting productivity output and loss of critical man-hours is the lack of synchronisation among its internal and external departments.
