Nisa is rolling out its e-procurement activities across all of its trading divisions using the reverse auction technology platform from Barclays b2b. The Barclays b2b team has spent several months working with Nisa to incorporate the auction process into the buying function at Scunthorpe and Stoke, and training staff to host auctions independently. The move follows a successful auction for own label soft drinks contracts for Londis, Somerfield and Budgens in September. Nisa CBC held its first online tender on chilled products last month with an e-tender for promotional volumes on own label white and coloured Cheddar. {{NEWS }}
