Manufactured is proud to announce a media milestone with its new podcast, “re:COGs” the series which takes a deep dive into the essentials of inventory supply chain management and the fundamentals of operations for consumer brand owners.
With podcasts exploding in popularity in recent years, we would often hear from business leaders that they would be interested in listening to stories that focus on operational strategies and scaling solutions. Since this is our area of expertise, we decided to rise to the occasion and meet the demand for this kind of content by teaming up with host, Mike Gelb to bring the re:COGs series to life.
Launched in April 2023 the podcast has been gaining popularity with listeners and has even been host to both in-person meet-ups and live online webinar events where thought leaders share their experience and knowledge with their professional peers. Now celebrating its 20th podcast episode, the series provides a rare glimpse behind the scenes of rising companies, talking to founders and operational experts about how they’re tackling tough business issues.
Through storytelling and inquisitive conversation, host Mike Gelb takes listeners on a journey to discover the essential strategies and unique approaches behind a slate of growing businesses.
The series explores what the top consumer brand owners and operators think about production expansion as they scale, and reveals many of the troubles and triumphs along the path to success. These discussions not only provide insight and advice on how leaders have adapted their business practices and leveraged expert support to overcome operational challenges but also share real solutions on topics such as inventory management, financing, sustainable manufacturing, labor shortages, and supply chain disruptions.
Tune in for authentic conversations with founders and experts across CPG, food, fashion, and other industries and discover insights you can apply to tackle your own business challenges as you scale up operations.
