We all know that using companies to distribute goods around the country is big business – but choosing the right people, for the right job, for the right price is not that simple. The art of getting your food in time is exactly that an art form.
In Understanding the logistics business we looked up the meaning thanks to Wikipedia and they state: “Logistics is generally the detailed organization and implementation of a complex operation. In a general business sense, logistics is the management of the flow of things between the point of origin and the point of consumption in order to meet requirements of customers or corporations. The resources managed in logistics can include physical items such as food, materials, animals, equipment, and liquids; as well as abstract items, such as time and information. The logistics of physical items usually involves the integration of information flow, material handling, production, packaging, inventory, transportation, warehousing, and often security.”
We know that sourcing foods often means getting the food to our packing facility – that involves logistics, so sourcing from local suppliers with a small travel footprint helps the environment and gets as close to garden to table as possible.
Then preparing our recipes, a science in itself means hours of research, testing, tasting and sourcing until we have it right – no waste ample for the amount of servings usual 4 meals for 4 people for 4 days, and finally printing the recipes at a down the road localised printer to keep the footprint down and using recycled paper whenever possible.
Packing, another logistical step, involves boxes (re-cycled), cooler packing with Polystyrene and gel packs (Both recycled) and a system whereby our guy, The Courier Guy, collects the used packaging and returns it to us for re-cycling – a win-win situation for all. This is delivered to each client’s doorstep as economically and quickly as possible.
The last logistical step – is the easiest – the cooking. That is where we at Food4Four come in.
