In today’s ultra-competitive marketplace, few companies can survive by simply doing what they have always traditionally done. Retailers and consumers are demanding change and innovation more than ever and at a faster pace than ever before. In spite of this challenging environment, QCS Purchasing continues to grow due to the fact that it recognized the need to adapt and redefine its business model from a traditional buying organization to one that is focused on becoming more of a solutions provider to the companies it serves.
Maximizing value by leveraging the buying scale represented in its community continues to be “job one” when it comes to the group, while new and innovative programs are paving the way for the future. In doing so, QCS provides the best returns possible in the form of low pricing and high service and quality in the goods they negotiate for on behalf of their owners. Supply items which are commonly sourced include: packaging materials, resin, OJ concentrate (through futures hedging), ingredients, corn sweeteners (tolling program), MRO supplies, cleaners and sanitizers, GM vehicles and many others.
