Keywords:Supply chain, Inventory, Customer
Every firm relies heavily on its supply chain. The success of a corporation is determined by how well its supply chain operates. Mr Chef is a company that specializes in spice manufacture. The obstacles faced by a company's supply chain were examined in this study. The respondents were given questionnaires that detailed the variables that affect the seamless operation of the supply chain, such as terrible roads, government regulation, a lack of labour, excessive material prices, and so on. The data for the study was gathered via quantitative analysis and a questionnaire that was delivered to 27 people. The information gathered was analysed using descriptive statistics. Because of the company's operational nature, we discovered that most of the raw materials they use in production are imported due to lack of availability of raw material in the country. According to the findings, the corporation should invest in local farmers to assure the supply of raw materials for their operations. The supply chain activity of the company starts with raw material procurement and finishes with distribution. We also suggested that inventory management be used to strengthen the supply chain by boosting visibility of the company's supply chain. The company also has a labour shortage; it is recommended that the corporation hire additional workers while laying off unproductive ones to ensure maximum production. Because there are so many competitors, Mr. Chef needs apply innovation in all areas of the firm. If they do not improve, they may be forced out of the market due to fierce competition from other companies that offer similar products.
