Business Reduction due to the Lack of Effective Management
Prior to its success in the bakery industry, ZBAC business operations went downhill for a time due to several reasons, mainly on poor inventory management. At that time, the raw materials were purchased without a solid business plan, there were no set sales targets and no proper recording system. Due to its hastiness in obtaining bulk materials at a low price from the supplier, ZBAC did not perform the proper due diligence which eventually caused the warehouse to be filled with plenty of unused materials.
Assuring Supplies for Continous Demand
A total of 70% of MBG’s fresh produce was imported from foreign countries while the remaining are secured from the locals. In order to maintain the quality and stocks of the fresh produce, MBG is dependent on three different sources for their supplies — farmers, exporters and agents. Other than having a short range of products, farmers could only provide a small scale output as the produce depends on the seasons. The exporters, on the other hand, have up to 20 farmers under their belt; which means they are able to obtain as many stocks as they want or need. However, the agents serve as the main source for MBG to purchase various fruit products since there will be daily transactions between the agents and other fruit sellers.
