KEYNOTE PRESENTATION

Impact of Digital Transformation & Leadership in Supply Chain 4.0

Jim de Jager

Impact of Digital Transformation & Leadership in Supply Chain 4.0


• Several technologies have emerged that are altering traditional ways of working. Today we are at a critical point in the transformation of the supply chain which enables companies to address the new requirements of the customers, the challenges on the supply side as well as the remaining expectations in efficiency improvement.

• One of the key challenges today is preparing the organization and finding the right people and skills to support and implement the digital transformation. It will need different skill sets; people who understand the opportunities and risks the business faces.

• Eliminating today's digital waste and adopting new technologies is an opportunity to increase the operational effectiveness of supply chains but a difficult mission to undertake. Only a few companies are willing to embark on such mission but those who do it right become faster, precise and more efficient. Today less than 50% of the companies have a digital roadmap in place to deal with the issue.

• So how should today’s Supply Chain leaders go about approaching the transformation? Research has shown that there is a mismatch between today’s digital investments and the way which digitization is most significantly affecting revenue and profit growth. It does not only require financial investments, a superb professional IT architecture but also a change in culture where bold leadership is required.

A regional production centre

Since our foundation in 1968, our parent company has invested HUF 114 billion into our operations. Thanks to this, and to our successful partnership, Coca‑Cola HBC Hungary has become one of the regional production centres of the Hellenic Group, with the largest soft drink bottling plant in Hungary, as well as one of the most important domestic food-processing factories.

Providing direct and indirect employment

Our headquarters and main production plant is located in Dunaharaszti (near Budapest), while our mineral water bottling plant is in Zalaszentgrót (in the west of Hungary).

We employ a total of 1,100 people in our two plants, seven distribution centres and offices but, indirectly, through our supplier chain, we provide jobs to nearly 13,000 people, overseeing the largest FMCG sales network in the country. Nearly two-thirds of our suppliers are domestic companies and a significant portion of our finished product is exported to 25 countries. 

A diversified product portfolio

We bottle and distribute products that bring people together, provide refreshment and bring happy moments. We distribute more than 70 different products, 90 percent of which are produced in Hungary. Our company offers a wide range of non-alcoholic drinks: carbonated soft drinks, natural mineral waters, flavoured waters, fruit juices, nectars and fruit drinks, ice teas, sport drinks as well as energy drinks. We also operate vending machines serving cold and hot drinks. In addition, Coca‑Cola HBC Hungary is the third largest distributor of spirits in the country, distributing Campari and Brown-Forman products.

Sustainability: “Everybody, every day, everywhere”

Our operations support local communities. We protect the environment, particularly the purity of drinking water and the wetlands, since our products are primarily made of drinking water.

It is our company's goal to use environmentally friendly energy-generating technologies, mitigate our emission of harmful gases, reduce the volume of waste arising from our operations and our water consumption, and to popularize an active lifestyle and balanced approach to nutrition.

Sustainability is an integral part of our operation and, therefore, we release an annual integrated business report about our business and environmental performance. This reflects our company’s CSR strategy, which is characterized by three priorities: “Everybody, every day, everywhere”.
