Fresh Produce demands something different because the Fresh Produce industry does something different.
Every consignment of product can be different down to the pallet level – even from the last consignment received from the same vendor.
Geography, seasons, local weather conditions, whether the deal is a fixed price or based on producing a Grower Return once the goods are traded, whether the product has problems and will have a lower yield or higher wastage – these all make for highly variable costs.
Margins are low and getting increasingly lower and companies are forced to handle higher and higher volumes to make money. All of this demands very exacting control.
Average costs / standard cost / variance analysis approaches that rely on the General Ledger simply do not allow the management of every detail and speed of information needed to find the losses and act quickly enough to make money.
Prophet’s inventory centric consignment accounting does.
