The new lead author of this latest edition has maintained the exceptional coverage that has made this book an industry standard, giving in-depth attention to ordering procedures, distribution systems, supplier channels, price and payment, storage and security, and specifications for food and nonfood items such as furniture, fixtures, and equipment. In addition, every chapter has been supplemented with technology applications to help readers become savvy with industry programs. This book also features a companion Web site that connects readers to professional purchasing sites in order to develop real-world skills.
