Cadbury blames IT for £12m profit dent
Chocolate maker Cadbury Schweppes blamed problems with its SAP inventory system for a £12m downturn in profits.
The introduction of the system in the fourth quarter led to glut of Cadbury products. Coupled with weak sales in January – all those New Year Resolutions – the company was forced to heavily discount some chocolate bars to clear its inventory.
The new ERP system is part of a global IT project at Cadbury called Probe which is looking for £50m in annual savings.
The chocolate maker also blamed high oil prices for its problems – forecasts were made on the basis of $60 a barrel rather than $70.
