IMPROVING PRODUCTION AT BEOTHIC FISH PROCESSORS LIMITED - High School (adapted)
"The Pelagic processing area at the plant in Valleyfield, Newfoundland, has not worked out as well as we had hoped for processing capelin," identified the General Manager of Beothic Fish Processors Ltd. "Although the company continues to be very successful, if we are to offer competitive prices and still earn a profit we must keep our production costs as low as possible, and given that production costs are a function of production efficiency, it is imperative that we improve our present production system. It appears to me that we must look carefully at our existing plant layout to accomplish this."
