Inclusive Supply Chains and Continuous Improvement
In many major and upcoming countries of production, there are large (vertically integrated) operators but also smaller farmers growing shrimp. Global shrimp supply chains depend to a certain extent on the supply of raw materials from these smaller producers. Primary processors are sourcing - long term or on the spot market - from these small producers to meet market demand. Such supply from smaller producers needs to meet the specifications from buyers, volumes are smaller and prices are volatile. Including smaller operators in international supply chains requires investment in relationships, planning and logistics, infrastructure and capacity building. This seminar will look into how the industry can deal with such challenges? Furthermore we will address the trends and opportunities to make supply chains more inclusive.
