Talk:Cooperative Food

From Organic Design

Use coop cashflow to purchase economic quantities, keep surplas in stock. Maintain talley of error (from price differences at purchase time or from excess stock needing to be moved at lower cost), then compensate for these losses in next price listing. --Nad 21:07, 24 Dec 2006 (NZST)

what do you mean by "compensate for these losses in next price listing"?--Flower 21:26, 24 Dec 2006 (NZST)
just that prices fluctuate and so price listings are regularly maintained, and any expenses generated by the coop should be reflected in the markup. People should only ever pay what the listed amount was, it shouldn't change, so that means the coops cashflow will have to absorb any losses from that, but if they're included as an expense thay can be made back in the next cycle. --Nad 23:15, 24 Dec 2006 (NZST)
