The Key to Produce Purchasing

You want to get top-quality fruits and vegetables without breaking your budget. The first step to savings is to assess your current purchasing strategy. You’ll want to ask yourself a few questions: 


Do we have strong relationships with our produce suppliers? Connecting with suppliers can help you determine which products work best for your company. A strong relationship makes this process easier. 

Are we relying on repeat orders or reassessing needs regularly? It’s important to reassess your needs every shipment, if possible. This ensures you’re not wasting supply when demand changes. 

Do we have consistent access to ordering advice on buying specific fruits and vegetables? Seasonality and environmental changes can largely impact specific species of produce. Does your team have a way to stay abreast of updates? 


Once you’ve determined the pain points in your current process, you’ll want to consider whether it’s time to partner with a group purchasing organization for your produce purchasing needs.
