Lots to talk about!
First, it was great to have Gustavo Gaya drop in on Monday. He planned his trip around the arrival time for a truckload of his product arriving from Mexico, and spent a couple of hours with our Receiving crew. He wasn’t checking for quality – that was a given – he wanted to make sure the pallets were built right, and then compare his packouts to our other vendors. He even weighed his kale bunches to see how they measured up, and when finding that the black kale was a little light, he was on the phone to his ranch and pronto! This is the first time we have ever had a supplier from anywhere in either the US or Mexico actually come to see how things look at our end. So that was cool.
