NOTE: FROM SLP MOD 1 :
The information below describes the contact between Stacy and Woody. One party is selling blueberries, and the other party is buying the blueberries used in a bakery.
Supply of Blueberries
BETWEEN: Stacy T, a baker of gluten-free organic muffin
AND: Woody M., a local grower of organic blueberries.
Woody has agreed to supply organic blueberries to Stacy, making gluten-free, organic blueberry muffins in her bakery. Stacy will make an order to Woody requesting some organic blueberries, and the order process is followed, where Stacy will be informed when the order will be ready. This will be followed by an invoice stating the number of blueberries ordered and the price of the order.
Stacy will accept the invoice sent stating the number of blueberries offered and the price of the order.
Woody is expected to bring in quality blueberries as Stacy is likely to pay for them as soon as they have been dispatched to her. Moreover, Woody is scheduled to offer the correct quantities of Blueberries as stated in her invoice.
Competency & Capacity: Each party must agree to follow the terms of the contract. Both parties are to ensure that all procedures and protocols are followed. Stacy is to ensure that the amount deposited in Woody’s account is correct.
Payment should not exceed five days from the day of the invoice. If the quantities or quality of berries is insufficient, Stacy has the right to return the goods on the day of dispatch or a day later. Any berries found deficient will not be accepted by Woody.
Trade between Woody and Stacy should follow the correct procedures in the purchase. Both parties are to display honesty, prudence, and integrity in all their activities. Moreover, the transactions should be transparent and included in their financial statements.
In case any party fails to deliver their part, the contract can be terminated. Moreover, if Stacy finds another supplier, Woody is not obligated to make sure Stacy does. If Woody fails to supply blueberries to Woody, then Stacy may look for another supplier. In case of a price change, Woody should inform Stacy immediately.
IF woody changes the prices and does not inform Stacy of the changes, then Stacy is bound to pay for the blueberries at the previous price. All communications will be done via email. The invoice number should match with the date of payment by Stacy.
The information includes all elements of a contract. Some of the considerations have not been included but follow the general ethical principles. The elements of the contract between Stacy and Woody have been guided by the agreement between significant restaurants and suppliers such as Starbucks and Manji.
