Planning and Forecasting at Anzco

Anzco is New Zealand’s 5th largest  exporter, has sales of NZ$1.25bn and employs 3,000 staff worldwide. Established and progressive, Anzco Foods is a dynamic, multinational group of companies, whose core purpose is to procure, process and market New Zealand beef and lamb products. We market prime cuts in their simplest form, and produce sophisticated food solutions that meet the tastes and lifestyles of today’s consumers.


Anzco Foods had previously worked with an Optimity Consultant implementing a supply chain planning solution that transformed the planning of our lamb business. Recently Anzco Foods has conducted a review of contemporary Planning and Forecasting software to deploy across other areas of our business – four solutions were evaluated and Optimity was unanimously preferred by the evaluation team. Optimity delivered on all technical and functional requirements, was cost competitive and the Optimity consultants involved in the process took the time to understand our requirements, built upon our ideas and were very passionate about their solution and delivering a successful outcome for Anzco Foods.
