We all have an organized structure in which we live in, and all our necessities are nearby. Humans require water and food, above all other commodities and necessities, to survive and in our natural habitat we do not worry about the provision of these items. A simple visit to the grocery store serves all our requirements. But, our job here is not to tell you the things you already know, but to prepare you for any hurdle that may come into this organized structure. Floods, earthquakes, or any other natural disaster may influence your life negatively and this book is all about helping you in picking the right food to survive in these circumstances. Panic is the first indication of losing it all. We want you to avoid that and the methodology is preplanning and awareness of disastrous situations. In this book, we initiate by advising you about the importance of planning ahead so that you do not feel that you are spending too much just for emergency situations. Shop side by side each time you visit the grocery store. We explain what you need and the shelf lives of the most important high quality survival foods. As we know it is human nature to make mistakes, we also advise you on how you may avoid the key ones in our section of what not to store. Lastly, we tend to the people stuck in the wilderness and give them key points on the identification of safe plants to eat and the gold universal edibility test. This book aims to educate you in choosing the best survival foods and storage instructions to protect you from adverse scenarios.

Understanding Foodservice Redistribution was written to help food manufacturers come to grips with a sometimes complex topic. Part 1, "Understanding the Basics," provides a comprehensive overview of redistribution from the perspective of manufacturers, distributors, and redistributors. By presenting the case for redistribution, then prescribing a detailed methodology for determining its cost avoidance potential and marketing value, this book helps the reader to fully understand the economics of a redistribution program. In Part 2, "Advanced Issues in Redistribution," we go beyond the numbers to discuss the benefits, opportunities and risks associated with committing to redistribution. We examine the challenges of managing both the customer mix and the product mix, and provide a thorough analysis of the issues around private-label and deviated-price products that flow through redistributors. Having established this context, we provide closing thoughts about "Getting the Most from Your Redistribution Program." Understanding Foodservice Redistribution will help ensure a common comprehension among the Sales, Marketing, Finance, and Supply Chain people in your organization. Armed with this clear understanding, you will be prepared to get the results you want from your redistribution program.
