Liz Earle visit

Liz Earle, Naturally Active keeping the ethos alive with a living wall

This time the students visited Liz Earle, a natural beauty products company located on the Isle of Wight. A short boat ride off the southern coast of England, the visit normally involves a ride on a Hovercraft, but due to some inclement weather we had to take the ferry.

The students met with the company’s Operations Director, Supply Chain Planning Manager and Packing Operations Manager who provided insights into the strategic challenges of multi-channel distribution and strategy, as well as capacity management of warehouse and packing operations.
