I am hoping you could help me in resolving an on-going issue we have in our small facility.
We continue to purchase raw materials (i.e. milk) from retailers because we are unable to meet minimums from distributors and vendors.
We also make some last minute purchases from retailers in order to produces samples. We do not have a test kitchen so samples are produced on our manufacturing line.
Can anyone provide any insight or advice on how to approach this and include into our Supplier Approval Program.
Any help you could provide you be greatly appreciated.
