Bamboo Rose expands its PLM solution to Canada with Loblaw, Canada’s leading food retailer to use the Bamboo Rose multi-enterprise platform to digitize and streamline product development across all merchandise categories
Bamboo Rose, the leading multi-enterprise product and supply chain platform, announces today that Canada’s leading food retailer, Loblaw Companies Limited (Loblaw), is working with Bamboo Rose to build, deploy, and sustain a world-class product lifecycle management tool.
Currently, Loblaw uses Bamboo Rose for its importer of record (IOR) and certificate management solutions, which provide traceability for food safety and improved end-to-end supplier visibility. The next step in this relationship includes Loblaw’s co-development of Bamboo Rose’s food and formulation product lifecycle management. Now, with Loblaw’s expertise in food PLM, Bamboo Rose will be bringing food and formulation PLM to the marketplace.
Under the new system, Loblaw will be able to streamline its product development processes and create a closed-loop feedback for its entire value chain, from ideation to manufacturing to retail delivery.
“We chose Bamboo Rose to build on its current world class system to include food and formulation,” said Ian Gordon, Loblaw Brands Senior Vice President. “Together, we will streamline our product development process and ensuring we deliver the highest quality, innovative products to our consumers with speed and traceability. Our goal is to drive a more modern, collaborative approach throughout our organization and vendor community.”
“Bamboo Rose is committed to helping retailers like Loblaw compete in the new retail economy. Our focus has always been on shortening the product development lifecycle and streamlining processes for a more efficient, collaborative and digital retail experience, no matter the industry,” said Sue Welch, Bamboo Rose CEO. “We’re excited to work with Loblaw as they are the recognized leader in providing great food products.”
Loblaw is the latest customer to join Bamboo Rose’s growing grocery portfolio, which also includes brands like Action NL, Family Dollar, Kaufland, ShopRite, and Woolworths.
