Swift & Company
Does Not Control Its
Raw Material
Other industries can buy their raw
materials according to need or judgment,
and set a selling price. They need
manufacture only what they can sell at
their price.
Cotton, wool, wheat, lumber, iron,
steel, and other non-perishables, can be
held either by their producers or then
users until needed.
But live stock comes to market every
day in fluctuating quantities from scat
tered sources, wholly uncontrolled and
at times without regard to market needs.
An immediate outlet must be found
for the perishable products, at whatever
pricey as only a very small proportion
can be stored.
No one can foresee or stipulate what
they shall bring prices must fluctuate
from day to day to insure keeping the
market clear.
Only the most exacting care of every
detail of distribution enables
Swift & Company to make the small
profit from all sources of a fraction of a
cent per pound, necessary for it to con
tinue to obtain capital and maintain
operations.
