According to Barkman, even though the COVID-19 pandemic is still affecting businesses, consumers should not expect Quality Poultry Products to increase its prices. Barkman explains that the company’s philosophy is volume over profits.

“We did not raise any prices during COVID and currently like I had mentioned previously we are going through this together with everyone. And see how far we can get without having to raise any chicken prices whatsoever. So that is also a raise to parts.”

Would you say that the company’s revenue stream is normal or regular because speaking about increase of prices COVID has stressed a lot of companies and business but you are saying that the revenues that the company is collecting now would not force you guys to raise prices anytime soon?

“Well, not currently. Remember volume is key. So the sooner we can get back to our volume obviously the better is it. Here at Quality our philosophy is we believe in volume over price because when you have volume you can work with a smaller profit margin than what you are selling a little bit in a high price. Might not have the same profit but we believe in volume over profit and here is why. There is along chain behind Quality. Remember we have the corn farmers and we have all the farmers who want to grow more grain so it is in our best interest to keep volume a priority over profits. But I mean of course we have this year we have lost a lot of money probably like every company but I mean of course we have had our financial difficulties but we decided we would plow this through for now and see where the future holds us.”
