Return of Damaged Goods

I'm a food wholesaler and frequently have products damaged in transit by the courier companies. I need to issue my customers a credit note for these products. At the moment I have a 'breakage' account which is a debit account against income/sales. However, the value of the breakages is based on my wholesale price not on my cost, so my breakages value looks higher  than it actually is. How do I correct this?

Raise the credit to the customer, then process an inventory adjustment which uses the actual cost.  You are using inventory?
