“Lauras” means Success

lauras-about-05Success for our Clients, Success for Us
The definition of “Lauras” is success – the name of the company stemming from the triumphs of ancient Rome, and tradition of putting a ‘Laurel’ wreath on the successful generals. We value our clients and recognise that we must work in partnership to deliver sustainable value and significantly improve returns to their businesses in order for us to succeed. We have a very successful track record in FMCG, our approach works across many sectors and cultures.

 

Testimonials

Inspiring the people in our business to understand how they can improve and the business can therefore develop, is an important building block in our drive for improving efficiency within our business. Engaging everyone in the business to realise that we can be better and any little improvement drives down to the bottom line. This has been seen both in the way the staff have engaged and enjoyed the experience and the evidence of reduced costs has helped the business to become more efficient. This process never stops but it is the tools that have been developed by Lauras International that has allowed us to deliver this important work at both our potato pack houses.

Fraser Scott, Head of Farming Operations Arable/Potatoes

Before Lauras came we were facing the looming recession as a premium supplier with huge pressures on our margins from the trade. By improving our efficiencies we have been able to maintain our bottom line over the current ‘crisis’. I would recommend Lauras International to any Food or Pharma business that wants to achieve rapid and sustainable productivity improvement.
