The reason this research is to be tested to see that why JIT does not implemented in food industry. According to Kaur (2023), The Chairman of Malayan Flour's statement emphasizes the potential risks and difficulties faced by industries that heavily rely on raw materials and effective supply chains. Geopolitical tensions, natural disasters, fluctuating exchange rates, and regulatory changes are just a few examples of the uncertainties that could cause supply chain bottlenecks and disrupt commodity prices. The objectives are to determine the barriers to adopt JIT delivery principles in GFM inventory management and to identify the connection between JIT delivery and the cost-cutting measures in GFM inventory management. The research was examined at Gemini Flour Mills Sdn. Bhd., Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. The methods used are basically an open-ended and close-ended questionnaire being distributed to employees and mean analysis been used for objective 1 and Spearman Correlation used to interpret the data for objective 2.
