Case study

Greencore Manufacturing Excellence


Our Greencore Manufacturing Excellence (‘GME’) programme was born out of a vision to become ‘famous for manufacturing’.

Since 2017 our journey has taken us from implementing a major operational efficiency programme, developing front line leadership to enable this, and ultimately exploring how next generation automation can enable our business.

GME is a significant change programme that uses standardised processes, tools, and techniques to target the key levers of labour and waste. This supports our cost and sustainability agenda. We developed bespoke technology to provide information to line leaders so that they’re guided to make choices in real-time to meet their performance targets.

Through the rollout of GME, it became clear that we needed to really give our front line colleagues the skills and capabilities to use this data effectively.

We developed our award-winning Line Manager Framework tool that allows our leaders immediate access, through an online portal 24 hours a day, training and development modules to help them in their day-to-day tasks.

Now we are at the early stages of exploring how targeted investment in automation could optimise our cost base and improve our operational efficiency.
