Imagine prioritizing cost over quality in the food supply chain. This choice could lead to significant losses, affecting various stages of the value chain. Such a strategy overlooks the essential concept of the “Cost of Quality” (CoQ), which emphasizes the importance of investing in quality to prevent higher costs in the long run. Nearly half of the consumers want assurance on the quality of the product, underscoring the critical role of quality in consumer satisfaction and trust. In our approach to supply chain services, CoQ is central. It guides our decisions and actions, ensuring that our clients can concentrate on their core competencies, confident in the knowledge that quality is being maintained at every stage of the supply chain. We implement rigorous measures and processes to uphold quality standards, continuously monitoring and improving them to meet the ever-changing demands of the food industry.
Quality at Every Step
Navigating through the supply chain, our journey is meticulously mapped with benchmarks of quality at every pivotal intersection. 70% of consumers say that the way food is handled is of high importance to them. Our adherence to stringent regulatory compliances and certifications underscores our commitment to safeguarding food safety and integrity. We have cultivated a robust ecosystem of quality control and assurance, where each product is meticulously inspected and tested to meet the highest standards of excellence. Internal audits are our vigilant sentinels, continuously monitoring, evaluating, and enhancing our processes, ensuring a performance that resonates with reliability and excellence. Innovations like FIT (Foodland Innovation & Transformations) and metrics like SQVI (Service Quality Value Index) are the creative directors in our quest for excellence, driving continuous improvement and ensuring that our supply chain performance is not just watched but admired and applauded for its consistent delivery of quality and value.
Quality from Within
Quality in the supply chain is an inside job, cultivated at the core of our organizational practices and radiating outward in every process and interaction. 74% of consumers say product quality is important in earning and keeping brand loyalty. At Foodland, it begins with empowering our people, instilling them with the knowledge and precision essential for upholding rigorous quality standards.

UnitXPro acts as our technological cornerstone, centralizing processes, standardizing procedures, and minimizing manual interventions, thus weaving a tapestry of efficiency and reliability.
