It’s quite a rarity for baseball fans to see a triple play. It’s even rarer for baseball players to execute one. But consider what fats and oils suppliers are facing these days. Customers are demanding and expecting the equivalent of such a spectacular feat on a regular basis.
Instead of a typical 5-4-3 put out — that’s a scenario whereby there are men on first and second, a ground ball is hit to the third basemen who then tags third, throws to second, followed by the second baseman throwing to first for the third out — fats and oils suppliers must contend with providing confectioners with products that are sustainable, have a free label and still function well in formulations.
