Snack Product Manufacturer Replace In-house Stock Counting

An international snack product manufacturer produces snacks for over 150 countries around the world with iconic global and local brands, required the support of RGIS. One of the largest snack companies in the world with global net revenues of $25.9 billion and net earnings of $3.4 billion in 2018. With operations in more than 80 countries and employing around 80,000 in factories, offices, research and development facilities and distribution activities around the world.


The snack product manufacturer wanted to replace the current in-house stocktaking with an experienced stocktaking company, so required RGIS to provide the following:

  • Stock count of all products
  • Reduce the existing time taken to conduct an in-house stock count of 12 hours
  • Stock count to take place out of hours so not to disrupt manufacturing or distribution


The snack product manufacturer partnered with RGIS to complete the change from in-house stock count project, and provided the following:

  • Utilised tablet technology
  • Scheduled the stock count to take place on a Sunday
  • Used lifting platforms to access high levels that stock was held on


The snack product manufacturer found that by outsourcing the change from in-house stock count project to RGIS, the following was achieved:

  • By having the stock count on a Sunday there was no disruption to manufacturing or distribution
  • Reduced the time the stock count took, from 12 hours in-house to 7 hours with RGIS
  • Accurately reported exactly what stock was held
