    Information to Help You Do Business with Us

    This page is dedicated to providing current Mead Johnson Nutrition suppliers with information on how to better collaborate with us and to provide prospective suppliers an introduction to Mead Johnson Nutrition.

  • Policies
  • Overview
    • In 2009, Mead Johnson Nutrition launched a transformation initiative to continue our growth as a global leader in pediatric nutrition. Mead Johnson's approach to effective supply chain procurement practices builds on our past efforts and investments and targets three focus areas:

      • Business transformation, to help us change existing procurement practices using best-practice business processes and leading SAP technology
      • Core business application solutions, to help us improve business efficiency
      • Enterprise integration, to help us reduce costs and increase productivity

      As a globally integrated enterprise, Mead Johnson is committed to strengthening the processes, systems and technologies that support its success. This means transforming such areas as Information Technology, Finance, and Procurement.

      A major part of the transformation effort involves our partnership with IBM for Procurement and Accounts Payable services. As a procurement services provider to Mead Johnson, IBM will be responsible for the following areas:

      • Strategic sourcing (supplier selection and negotiation)
      • Tactical buying (including administering requests for quotes and bidding)
      • Purchase order processing
      • Catalog content management
      • Supplier management for procurement of certain indirect goods and services categories

      IBM will also support Mead Johnson’s Accounts Payable invoice processing for both Direct and Indirect goods and services.

      Another significant aspect of the transformation is the creation of a dedicated Customer Assistance Center available to all Mead Johnson suppliers to address procurement and accounts payable questions or concerns. This will enable Mead Johnson to work with suppliers worldwide to deliver quality and value to the mothers and infants we serve.

  • Supplier Enablement

    Mead Johnson is implementing a new global SAP system to drive our procurement transformation initiative. Some of the changes we are making in Procurement and Accounts Payable might impact the technology or business processes you have been using when doing business with Mead Johnson. Review the sections below to determine the best option for your company to do business with Mead Johnson.

  • Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) Option test
    • Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is typically implemented by medium to large suppliers. Through EDI, electronic documents and business data is transferred from Mead Johnson to your company without human intervention (our SAP system talks directly to your SAP system).

      The primary application of Mead Johnson's EDI will be the distribution of purchase orders, purchase order acceptance, purchase order changes, invoicing and invoice rejections. By utilizing EDI, suppliers:

      • Improve data accuracy
      • Reduce technical complexity by using standardized data formats
      • Reduce the need for paper transactions
      • Accelerate information exchange within order processing

      For suppliers with existing EDI capability, Mead Johnson will use EDI ANSI X12 version 4030.

    Mead Johnson is implementing a new global SAP system to drive our procurement transformation initiative. Some of the changes we are making in Invoicing and Purchase Orders might impact the technology or business processes you have been using when doing business with Mead Johnson. Review the following sections for more information.

  • Invoicing Requirements
    • There are two main categories for submitting invoices. One is via Electronic Invoicing and another is via Manual submission of invoices.

      A. Electronic Invoicing Electronic invoices may be submitted via the Supplier Portal Option (SUS) or the Electronic Data Interchange Option (EDI). Refer to the link above for more details.

      B. Manual submission of invoices Suppliers that are not enabled to submit invoices electronically can send their invoices and credit memo to Mead Johnson using only one of the following procedures subject to specific country regulations. Note that if you use multiple methods below, there will be delay in processing and payment of your invoice.

      Via Email to RAPID Tool • Invoices sent to rapid host must be in one of the following non-editable formats to be accepted: PDF, JPEG, TIFF, BITMAP, GIF. Editable formats such as DOC, XLS, and PPT will be rejected and may delay invoice processing.
      • Each invoice needs to be in a separate PDF image. Attach the PDF image containing 1 invoice per image and send to the RAPID email. Do not scan multiple invoices in one image; this will not be processed and will be returned causing delay in the processing and payment of your invoice.
