Le Duff America selects ArrowStream as supply chain intelligence partner
Food service supply chain specialist ArrowStream has announced a partnership with Le Duff America, who is owned by France-based Groupe Le Duff.
The group serves more than 1 million customers daily at its nearly 2,000 bakery-cafés worldwide.
Le Duff America (LDA) has licensed ArrowStream’s market-leading OnDemand technology to support vital foodservice supply chain activities and optimize supply chain performance for brands such as la Madeleine Country French Café.
LDA will leverage the suite of OnDemand technology services to help evaluate critical supply chain data, identify new suppliers for sourcing, and execute quicker supply chain decisions that impact day-to-day operations.
“OnDemand is going to provide the supply chain intelligence we need and the tools and data necessary for my procurement team to operate at their best,” said Mike Cobern, Senior Director of Purchasing at LDA.
“Making sure our bakery-cafés receive the right product, at the right price, at the right time is our top priority, and OnDemand will allow us to do this efficiently and ensure opportunities are not missed.”
LDA is the latest foodservice operator to partner with ArrowStream, joining a portfolio of customers that have recently added Zaxby’s, Dairy Queen, Canadian Dairy Queen Co-Op, and Good Times Burgers, among others.
“We’re thrilled LDA has joined the growing number of restaurant chains that leverage OnDemand’s solutions to manage the complexity and growth within their supply chain,” said Jeff Dorr, Chief Customer Officer, ArrowStream. “We strive to provide the technology and tools our customers need to address industry-specific challenges and ensure ongoing, super-charged performance.
“Having unified data on spend analysis, sourcing, contract management, and suppliers, enable our customers to achieve real business transformation and game-changing benefits.”

How to Attend
In a COVID-disrupted era, we know that the majority of people would rather avoid travelling for events─why take the risk, right? In response to the continued disruption, BizClik Media Group has decided that Procurement & Supply Chain LIVE will offer the best of both worlds through hybrid accessibility.
That means you and your peers can attend the event in person or virtually ─ with no disadvantages for people who choose not to make the trip to the Tobacco Dock venue.
Procurement & Supply Chain LIVE will be held at the Tobacco Dock in London, an industry-leading venue that is renowned for delivering world-class events. For attendees’ peace of mind, the venue is working to the government-endorsed AEV All Secure Framework, alongside mia’s AIM Secure and ‘Good to Go’ accreditation, they will ensure that we achieve a COVID-secure environment to facilitate all of your networking needs.
Our physical venue is both historic and stunning, but it has no bearing on the information that you and your peers can gain from the event. You can still absorb it all, interact with other attendees, and enjoy the conference experience on your alternative, virtual platform.
The platform will feature live feeds from all of the stages, as well as virtual networking areas. So, if you want to avoid travel, it’s not a problem! You can still get involved and enjoy the entire experience from the comfort of your own home.
