Tiger Brands Limited is a member of the Top-40 JSE stock index of South Africa’s 40-largest companies and is the biggest manufacturer and marketer of fast-moving consumer goods in Southern Africa. It operates a diverse mix of businesses and brands focused on products ranging from sports drinks and smoked sausages, to Fizz Pop candies, Koo, All Gold and Purity food products, and more. The Group’s 8,000 products are well represented on the shelves of South African grocery stores.
Tiger Brands, founded in 1921, was built over a period of decades by acquiring and clustering businesses that own leading food, home, and personal-care brands. The group’s approach to expansion, acquisitions, and joint ventures has led to a distribution network spanning more than 22 African countries and a multifaceted group with varying research and communications needs.

Challenges
- Streamline operation of the company’s businesses, which range from bakeries, to meat processing, to beauty creams and baby care products by establishing a single IT platform and consolidating various enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems
- Standardize core business processes, such as sales, ordering, manufacturing, and procurement to improve efficiency across the various businesses that kept their own IT systems after Tiger Brands acquired them
- Facilitate shared services by integrating diverse business units with their unique sourcing, manufacturing, inventory, sales, and distribution cycles on a common ERP platform
- Improve sales and operations planning to make more accurate, credible business forecasts and targets
- Add catch-weight functionality—an accounting tool that allows the user to sell in one unit of measure while purchasing and producing in another—to better manage products, such as processed meats that vary in weight between their original form and the final cuts
