“WE’RE NOW SEEING DATA AS AN ASSET – EVERY DAY”
VP OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE
GrayMatter is uncovering incredible opportunities at T. Marzetti that will transform the way food is produced by digitizing manual operations and empowering the people on the Marzetti team to use data to make the best decisions.
T. Marzetti Company, a subsidiary of Lancaster Colony Corp., is based in Westerville, Ohio.
Marzetti began in 1896 when Teresa Marzetti, an immigrant from Florence, Italy, opened a small Italian restaurant in Columbus, Ohio, which grew into a four-star dining establishment with an upstairs factory that produced the restaurant’s popular salad dressings.
In addition to dressings and dips, Marzetti makes New York Bakery frozen breads and Sister Schubert’s homemade rolls. Lancaster Colony Corporation, a publicly-traded company that has about 2,800 employees, reported $1.2 billion in net sales in 2017. It has facilities in Alabama, California, Iowa, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin.
“Now we’re really trying to be more proactive with the planning. Making data available across the supply chain is a big deal, and I think we’re at the very beginning,” said Jeff Woodard, VP Operational Excellence at T. Marzetti.
