Food processors face an ever changing production schedule which depends largely on the growers products, their finished product customers, labor, and the current market pricing. Many facilities are relocating or looking to relocate to decrease the fixed cost of overhead and labor to try and obtain a competitive advantage over their competitors, which can be only a few cents per pound of finished product. Relocating a facility or expanding into increased or alternative products requires a lot of research and investigation as to the actual costs. The costs for processing equipment, power, $ per square foot of processing space, etc. are readily known factors. The variable factors such as market price, crop yield and quality from the growers is up to acts of nature. One of the most expensive variable costs is treating the process wastewater.
