Is it always bad practice to have variations in colour for all food products?

Is it always bad practice to have variations in colour for all food products?

Is it always bad practice to have variations in colour for all food products? When it comes to food production, most companies want to ensure that there are no variations in colour, as this shows brand consistency and quality.
