TCHO Achieves Sweet Planning Success with DemandCaster
TCHO’s artisan chocolates encompass a broad range of products and SKUs—everything from chocolate nibs used in baked goods, coffee, beer, and ice cream to specialty bars sold to grocery chains, restaurants, and direct to consumers online. It can take more than a year for TCHO to receive manufacture-ready cacao beans from growers once it places an order, so it needs the ability to plan its supply chain well in advance. Not just for sourcing, but for every step from bean to packaged chocolates. To pull it off, the company had to overcome some key challenges.
