Hagemeyer: Vendor # KZ04-1 Chef Minute Meals, Inc.

C5MM Distribution SiteThrough servicing the Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Relief Industry, Chef Minute Meals has worked round the clock to develop a few key programs to provide stress relief to the preparing agencies. Many issues the agencies face are funding, storage, and ease of distribution.

In order to provide relief to storage and funding CMM developed an Inventory Management Program (IMP) also referred to as Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) for relief in the stock piling and/or ‘just in time’ process, but also provides relief through payment plans as well.

In order to accommodate the ease of distribution CMM developed a Customizable Meal Kits program in order to allow the combining of products into one package providing a half day, full day, or three day meal kit, and/or whatever your agency requires.

Many agencies run into the issue of expiring meals prior to use, due to this CMM developed an Expiring Inventory Donation Program, whereas CMM offers a per unit credit on expiring inventory coming soon to expiration within 60 days. This per unit is applied to the replenishment order of Chef 5 Minute Meals. The expiring product does not have to be Chef 5 Minute Meals manufactured, simply an industry competitive product.
