It seems like such a long time ago now, but it has been barely 12 months since Treasury Wine boss Michael Clarke called in his old UK chum from Premier Foods, Bob Spooner. His job was to rip tens of millions of dollars in costs out of its supply chain – just like he did with Premier's bread business while Clarke was in charge. Optimising the supply chain at the wine business is just like slicing bread really, as Spooner showed in October when he announced the closure and sale of the 150-year-old Great Western Winery in Victoria.
