Tailor-made forecasts to help The Spice Tailor better meet the needs of its customers and consumers.
The Spice Tailor is an innovative fast-growing food company who are passionate about creating authentic, tasty, healthy and convenient meals for their consumers. Finance Director Matt Gordon attributes the authenticity of the brand to the sourcing of ingredients and manufacturing in India and Thailand. The Demand Solutions Platform will help better anticipate demand and improve visibility of lead times, making it easier to keep The Spice Tailors’ customers shelves well stocked. Matt explained the reasons for the investment:
“As we continue to experience rapid growth, working in partnership with Demand Solutions on improving our forecasting process will ensure that we are best positioned to deliver locally-sourced Indian and Asian meal-kits to our customers and consumers in the UK, Australia, Canada and Ireland.”
The Spice Tailors’ expectations for the demand and requirement planning components of the Platform are:
1. Improvements in business process efficiency for our planning and operational teams
2. A significant increase in the speed and accuracy of forecasts to better meet customer and consumer needs
3. Enabling the release of working capital to re-invest in growing the brand
“We are very excited to be working with Demand Solutions and to have the opportunity to benefit from the DS platform and from the expertise and insights that Alex and the team bring. This project will bring our forecasting process to the next level and ensure that we continue to meet the needs of our customers and our consumers”.

“We are delighted to welcome The Spice Tailor to the DSE family and to be selected as their long-term Supply Chain Partner for this critical project that will help underpin The Spice Tailors’ growth. This is an exciting company for us to be working with and a personal favourite of mine as I use their meal-kits myself. With the adoption of the Demand Solutions Platform ‘Demand Planning’ and ‘Replenishment Planning’ components, The Spice Tailors’ Supply Chain Planning will help them not only meet, but exceed, the demands of their customers. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial business relationship …. and I am looking forward to their Fiery Goan Curry sauce for my dinner tonight”
