With prices soaring due to inflation, everyone is looking for ways to cut costs. This includes the protein industry, where some can be tempted to use cheaper shipping materials to shave off a few pennies. Those short-term savings, however, might wind up with bigger long-term costs, as spoiled or damaged meat can not only result in financial losses but risk alienating your loyal customer base. ProBin’s innovative bulk storage bins can help deliver a quality product even in trying times, saving you from spending a fortune in potential losses.
Save a Little Now…
While obviously no one wants to sell an inferior product, sometimes it happens as an unintended consequence from efforts to save elsewhere– for example, trying to reduce shipping expenses by buying cheaper, outdated cardboard bulk storage bins. While this might seem like a straightforward cost-saving measure, the devil can be in the details, and all sorts of hidden costs might sneak up on you.
Older, more primitive cardboard bins don’t often have the structural strength to keep their shape when loaded with protein products, which can make them bulge, warp, and split. Bulging bins take up more space on storage racks, potentially driving up the costs of shipping. Worse, every bulge, every scrape, and every burst seam risks exposing the food inside to heat, cold, moisture, and damage.
…Pay a Lot Later
Stating the obvious, spoiled or damaged food means your company has to foot the bill for these losses. With inflation driving up costs across the board, the last thing you need is the added expense of wasted product. Worse still, every instance of damaged packaging or prematurely expired food runs the risk of causing a recall, which can end up costing millions. The margin for error has never been slimmer, and every pound of spoiled product is money down the drain.
But it’s not just about saving money; it’s about keeping your customers happy. When customers receive an inferior product, they’re not only dissatisfied, but they’re also less likely to return to your business. With everyone more careful about how they spend their money these days, buying bad meat once can be enough to ensure that some customers never buy from your company again.
