Breakout Session – Continental Mills

The Right Mix for Product Planning Success





Continental Mills, Inc. is a privately held manufacturer and marketer of baking and beverage mixes, snacks and other high quality food products. The family-owned company has strong branded products sold under its Krusteaz®, WildRoots®, Kretschmer® Wheat Germ and Alpine®. To support the company’s expanding product portfolio, changes in resources and tightened upstream constraints, Continental Mills needed a way to manage and maximize the use of its production assets.

Learn how Continental Mills uses secondary constraints in Supply Planning to:

  • • Create a plan in Supply Planning without overloading Manufacture Planning
  • • Ability to model “one to many” constraints within the system
  • • Maximize available capacity to increase asset utilization
