Product Specifications For Progressive Food Service Operators
Maintaining up to date and detailed consumable specifications can be extremely time consuming. Extensive resource is used chasing suppliers for this information, placing unwanted pressure on technical departments.
Packaging specifications for consumable present a set of challenges that are unique from raw material / ingredient specification requirements in general.
- Smaller number of suppliers supplying large numbers of items such as cleaning materials/catering sundries/uniforms etc.
- Specifications from suppliers can be very similar across a large number of items.
- Suppliers often supply to other industries where specification requirements are not as onerous.
