ACCT 540 Week 5 Course Project Case 1 – Research Memorandum

Research Memorandum

You have been hired as a consultant for Thomas
Foods. Thomas Foods was incorporated in 1969. Thomas Foods sells produce
purchased from farmers to neighborhood grocery stores throughout the country.
Thomas Foods has asked you to implement a hedging strategy to mitigate the
risks associated with any unexpected increase in price they would have to pay
farmers for their harvested crops. Thomas Foods asks that you provide examples
of how various hedging strategies could be implemented. The Controller of the
company has no experience in this area and would need to understand the
accounting treatment for whichever hedging strategy you select. Of significant
importance to management is how any hedging strategy would impact operating income.

The objective of this accounting research project
is to help you transfer the concepts and research techniques that you learn
from the course to a case study example.

The Research Memorandum must conform to APA format
and be at least 3-5 pages in length, not including references.
