I have a issue with my current situation. I am a QA in a small family owned business. The owner wants to go further for SQF level 2, but we are cannot find correct supplier for our raw materials.
We use finished commodity products to do our product. Before the company usually buy from costco or similar places. Now we are working on searching suppliers who can provide us product specifications. However, most of the big suppliers require bulk load order, which is not working with us. For example, one product we only need 10kg for maybe a whole year, but those suppliers require 500kg for minimum order. If we buy the same product from costco or other places we can get the quantity. At the same time, local small suppliers are not supplying the same product, and there is no point to buy from other country or province with such low quantity.
Is there any possible solution for that? Any ideas will help. Thanks a lot.
