Purchasing – An Integral Part of an Organization’s Processes

in Food Safety Fridays Webinars
Added by Simon, 23 Nov 2014

Taking place 28 Aug 2015 03:00 PM - 04:00 PM (Single Day Event)


Webinar Description

In this webinar we will learn how ‘mutually beneficial supplier relationships’ can be fostered to assure food safety. Most organizations need to purchase materials for the smooth functioning of their processes. One of the principles of quality management is ‘mutually beneficial supplier relationships’. This means that the purchaser and the supplier should have a relationship whereby value is created for both parties. To ensure value on his side, the purchaser has to ensure that he has suitable methods for selecting suppliers, monitoring their performance, ensuring purchasing information to the supplier is adequate, and verifying that supplied materials meet requirements. Having the wrong supplier will most likely result in problems for the purchaser in satisfying his customer’s needs.
