Nectar shares its distribution expertise with university students

Nectar, based at Ta’ Qali, opened up its doors to a group of University of Malta students who were on a mission to unravel the complexities of resource planning at large scale food and beverage distribution companies.

The second-year Mechanical Engineering students had to investigate best practices in the manufacturing resource planning (MRP) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) for their grades. Nectar’s footprint across Malta and Gozo and its recent implementation of the latest ERP solution, by Microsoft Dynamics AX, made the company a natural choice for students to study.

“Products from Nectar’s portfolio are stocked in over 3,100 retail spaces and this poses numerous challenges in the area of food safety, regulatory directives, and customer demands. This, coupled with Nectar’s more than 25 years of expertise, made it an ideal business for the students to study. We are committed to supporting social and educational learning for a better society,” said Nectar general manager Andrea Agius.

Student Jennies Mallia said: “Our assignment was a challenging one but the enthusiasm of Nectar staff made it a fruitful experience for us. As Nectar was transitioning to the latest ERP solution, we could ask questions, understand the differences, and overall add more value to our learning. We managed more than what we had hoped for.”

Established in 1991, Nectar has one of the largest sales forces in Malta with 50 sales personnel, representing over 50 renowned brands spread over six sales divisions. Its extensive portfolio of food, beverage and confectionery products is widely stocked in all leading supermarkets, hotels, restaurants, bars, canteens, groceries, pharmacies and health shops , apart from other outlets. In recent years, ISO certified Nectar won awards for equality, learning and development, performance orientation, technology, job satisfaction, and health and safety.
