Improved Shrinkage Rates at Summit (10/1/13)

“You will find attached the shrinkage records for Summit Bottling since May 2013.  As you know we have a reasonable maximum shrinkage expectation of 5% for ingredients and 3% for packaging. Although the Marion facility has previously struggled in this area, we note that since you assumed control of the company the shrinkage rates have shown improvement. We really appreciate your effort and focus on producing great products for us without excessive loss. ”

Testimonials

We could not be more pleased with the partnership we have developed with Summit and Geoff Soares.  These major changes/improvements noted above would not have been made by prior ownership and it was not until Geoff took control that we saw the commitment to building a premier co packing partner.  We Highly Recommend Summit as a co packer and a strategic partner. “
