Market Complexity

The brewery has a mixture of modern and very old plant. The plant design is old. There are hard mains for wort and beer transfers. These present a challenge to the brewing team in terms of plant and product hygiene, Safety controlling losses and achieving quality.

The market demands a brand portfolio necessitating the production of several Stock Keeping Units. This builds complexity for the brewing team in terms handling the SKUs.

The company is facing competition from 1st world companies which produce high quality product with minimum human error. Costs incurred during beer production are growing and it is imperative that these costs are reduced and not pass the burden to the customers. Legal requirements are changing and the penalties for non conformance are very high, some of which include shutting down the brewery.
