Don't Let Produce Be The Black Hole
Produce is one of the most difficult yet most important categories to manage. There are a few produce purchasing groups in the marketplace who contract with produce suppliers; these companies add 3-6.5% to your produce costs for this service. And yet, you can get direct contracts with produce distributors on the produce items you buy, and avoid this fee.
If you’re getting pricing on a daily basis – not weekly, monthly quarterly or annually – it’s costing you a lot of money – 3-7% more than you should pay.
