Never Mind the Quality - Cut the Costs.
This obscure blog about horticulture pulls a lovely quote from the Production Director of Haymarket,
"Previously, we concentrated on quality as number one, followed by the environment and costs. Now all our energies are focused on costs." Well. It's starkly honest you would have to agree but I bet it not many of the Hayamrket sales teams will be repeating the sentiment in front of customers.
Anyway, in a memo to Chris King (the aforementioned Production Director) just because there is a recession on doesn't mean you should abandon quality - otherwise when the recession is over, although you won't have much cost, you won't have much revenue either.
