Ready to learn the details of United Natural Foods, Inc.’s (UNFI) latest growth strategy? The distributor is aiming for increased efficiency, bolstered supply chain capabilities, and in-depth demand analysis as it forms a strategic alliance with RELEX Solutions, an innovator of unified supply chain and retail optimization solutions.

Erin Horvath, Chief Operating Officer, United Natural Foods, Inc.“As part of UNFI’s multifaceted transformation agenda, we’re continuing to implement cutting-edge technology to improve the customer and supplier experience, while increasing operating efficiency,” said Erin Horvath, Chief Operating Officer at UNFI. “RELEX offers a robust, reliable solution that maximizes UNFI’s capabilities, helps automate our network, and optimizes our procurement processes, ensuring the freshness of our products and quality of service to our customers.”

As noted in a press release, the system will consolidate and replace multiple UNFI buying systems and drive efficiencies in demand planning and replenishment. RELEX is expected to give UNFI a holistic view of its operations, including future capacity and supply constraints, and streamline its planning processes. The system will also consolidate multiple buying systems into one enhanced process, combining a more robust analysis of demand with a more granular approach to procurement.

The improved platform will help optimize inventory across all UNFI categories, reducing spoilage, improving service levels, and increasing data visibility between UNFI’s suppliers and customers.

Frank Lord, Chief Revenue Officer, RELEX Solutions“RELEX is thrilled to be working with UNFI, as ensuring high service levels across all products, including fresh, is close to both of our hearts,” said Frank Lord, Chief Revenue Officer at RELEX. “We look forward to helping UNFI boost visibility across their supply chain so that they can hone the processes that work for them, their suppliers, and their customers.”

This newly formed alliance with RELEX aligns with the strategic transformation of UNFI’s supply chain capabilities as it looks to integrate advanced data-driven solutions to improve operational efficiency.
