National food brokers like Marvell Foods are instrumental in helping offset profit loss due to food production errors, thanks in large part to their ability to liquidate otherwise unsellable products to new pools of buyers.
Food production errors — including packaging errors and improper portioning — are seemingly small problems that tend to have big consequences. There’s an expectation among consumers (and rightfully so) that the packaging and portioning on their food products is correct. There is also a risk of premature spoiling from food and packaging production errors, as well as unintended exposure to allergens.
All of these consequences mean that when a company does end up with packaging errors, their only safe mode of action is to remove affected products from the sales pipeline — and to take a pretty big hit on profit.
Packaging Error Solutions
There are various types of production errors that can impact product salability. In all cases though, specialty food brokers can step in and help companies find creative solutions.
Some of the most common production and packaging errors include:
- Mislabeled ingredients
- Mislabeled portion sizes
- Improper product identification
- Improper or mismatched labels
Just as Marvell Foods can help companies offload product after packaging changes, they can also assist after packaging errors. Solutions include selling food in bulk to new buyers and engaging with networks that have no consumer visibility — and thus no consumer risk.
By getting creative with improperly labeled or portioned products instead of chalking them up to a loss, companies are able to realize a profit under circumstances they wouldn’t have been able to otherwise. They can also greatly reduce the amount of unnecessarily wasted products.
