Video: Purchasing – An Integral Part of an Organisation’s Processes


Purchasing – it is something that not only consumers think about. As suppliers, we also consider purchasing in a different sort of sense. This week’s web seminar will explore how a good relationship between you and your supplier can ensure better food safety. We will be looking at the various ways one can adopt a better relationship with your supplier and looking at the materials they give you.

A Summary of Purchasing – An Integral Part of an Organisation’s Processes

In this webinar, we will learn how ‘mutually beneficial supplier relationships’ can be fostered to assure food safety. Most organisations need to purchase materials for the smooth functioning of their processes. One of the principles of quality management is ‘mutually beneficial supplier relationships’. This means that the purchaser and the supplier should have a relationship whereby value is created for both parties. To ensure value on his side, the purchaser has to ensure that he has suitable methods for selecting suppliers, monitoring their performance, ensuring purchasing information to the supplier is adequate, and verifying that supplied materials meet requirements. Having the wrong supplier will most likely result in problems for the purchaser in satisfying his customer’s needs.
