Throughout the month of Decemeber, the Pet Food Experts teams in Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Illinois, and Washington celebrated the holiday season with parties at each of our office and warehouse locations. Each team enjoyed delicious food and drinks and had the opportunity to spend some quality time together before the holiday madness officially hit.
In the ongoing effort of analyzing ways to improve and find efficiencies anywhere in our company, Pet Food Experts has developed a program that focuses on Total Quality Improvement. As we developed this training program, it was immediately evident that any change or improvement is always contingent upon, and only successful with, the commitment of our teams. So, the program was fittingly named Quality Through People (or QTP™).
