First In - First Out (FIFO):

  • All incoming ingredients and finished products will be identified with a bar code placard by Warehouse Receiving.
  • Release and selection of product is done by “First In, First Out” (FIFO).
  • When choosing ingredients for production or staging finished customer orders, the warehouse location program will direct Warehouse Personnel to the oldest product first.
