The buyer’s role is to ensure the availability of packaging resources for cognacs in the Hennessy range. Glass, lids, capsules, cases, boxes, labels: all the “dry materials” necessary for its production line must be available according to a precise schedule. Providing a constant link between suppliers and production teams, they ensure the buffer stocks are maintained, manage sourcing and forecasts and deal with any contingencies in the supply chain. Their rigour and negotiating skills enable them to fulfil this role with total independence.
