It was a worse week than I thought at the food plant



In one of the threads here, I mentioned how an order of 10,000 units had to be done by hand because the portioning machines couldn't handle the large size of the stew packets. It took more people than planned, and a longer period of time.

Since then, I have learned. . .
--the total order was for more than 19,000 (we were supposed to do 10,000 the first day, and 9,000 the second day, which I mostly missed because of my food poisoning).
--none of the order was accepted by the purchaser, because a key ingredient--some mustard sauce which was supposed to be in the gravy--was missing. Another company sent my employer the defective sauce.
--the product, had it been done right, would have been sold for $34,000.

Next week, my production line is scheduled to re-process the stew. I am ezpecting this to mean that we will open every pouch of stew, add the missing ingredient, and then re-do it. Then it will be cooked again, and packaged for sale. I don't even know how much this will all cost.

And, it will be done by hand, because it is still too large a portion for the machines to produce.:o

I don't think your company would appreciate their failings and recookings being spoken about online.

I don't think anyone - if they knew - would want to eat it after it had been messed about with so much.
