Business challenge

Our client sought to identify further business opportunities to accurately value the target in a competitive auction.


A large private equity firm was targeting a poultry production and food processing business.

The target had a strong market presence, a large number of sites throughout the value chain, and had already identified improvement opportunities to drive profitability.

Business impact


of additional benefits identified across the target business


cost reduction by improving labour productivity


yield improvement through reducing waste


reduction in total procurement spend


surplus capacity on current rosters identified


surplus capacity achievable by modifying operating hours

  • Visit 14 sites, taking detailed observations
  • Conduct in‑depth analysis of current site‑level performance data and compare results
  • Provide a view of relative plant performance versus peers
  • Identify key levers for improvement based on analysis and findings

Key Takeaway

'On the ground' observation combined with rigorous analysis is a powerful tool for identifying realistic and effective improvement opportunities. For example, observations from the front line of high variation in site best practices and ineffective site sharing sparked analysis that sized an improvement opportunity with 25% to 65% yield impact.
