While raw agricultural materials account for a large portion of company costs, much more goes into food processing: labor, machinery, energy, and research and development—all of which erode company profits. Meanwhile, to effectively compete, food processing plants must navigate an ever-changing industry driven by new marketing opportunities, more streamlined operations, and fluctuating consumer tastes. And, companies are expected to outpace these changing preferences while continuing to meet government requirements and maintain cost levels.
HACCP compliance and functionality within food processing environment are the primary concerns. But the need for safe and controlled working environments has left many companies exposed to hidden charges in their supplier contracts. At Fine Tune, we help to ensure that our clients meet rigid food compliance standards while keeping burdensome indirect expense programs operating at optimal cost levels.
