Duvel Moortgat is a family business with a strong focus on specialty beers, which includes the Duvel, Vedett, ‘t IJ, La Chouffe, De Koninck, Liefmans and Maredsous brands. The company has grown from a local brewery to a global player with 10 production sites, including Belgium, the United States and Czech Republic. It also has several sales sites at France, Great Britain, China and Spain. This steady growth, coupled with the seasonality of beer production and the unpredictability caused by the coronavirus pandemic, made it clear that planning the production process through Excel has reached its limits. Duvel needed a more professional production and planning solution.
Infor was chosen because of its in-depth knowledge and experience in planning and scheduling in the brewing world. Now that the demand planning software has been installed, the planning tool is also added and linked to form a complete solution. Duvel now has software that is effective both in the long term and in the short term to better understand the production process.
