This is BS! Businesses need to do better for themselves and their customers!

According to the Associated Press, Global Food Prices broke records for 2022. That’s a damn shame because a lot of it is not necessary. The FAO Food Price Index dipped slightly in December, but for the entire year 14% above 2021 averages. These are the highest numbers since they began recording data in 1961.
JUST SAY NO to these types of price increases!
I do not want to cast aspersions, but when properly sourced using the right tools and the deeply knowledgeable sourcing professionals there is absolutely zero reason for 14% increases to base pricing. Understandably, commodities go up and down. There are times when prices have to go up. There are literally dozens of leverage points to the pricing. That is precisely why you need a white glove sourcing partner like SafeSourcing because the above numbers are unreasonable.
