REVIEW: With a focus on food service operations, this book outlines a ten step purchasing process and includes product specifications for meats, produce, non-food items and more. Unique coverage is given to make/buy analysis, payment processing and purchasing evaluations. A separate chapter is devoted to purchasing technology and services. Complete with two integrated Buyer’s Guides, the book outlines how to manage the purchasing process and identify quality products you want to buy.
The book includes Buyers at work case studies throughout each chapter. Chapters titled Professional Purchasing Prevents Problems identifies purchasing related problems and provide suggestions for their resolution. A chapter on Did you Know Elements provides supplemental information applicable to the chapter’s topic. It rounds out the readers understanding of the topic and provides interesting anecdotal information.
