A Value Chain Task Force Approach for Managing Private-Public Partnerships: Zamiba’s Task Force on Acceleration of Cassava Utilization. AgEcon
Chitundu, Maureen; Droppelmann, Klaus; Haggblade, Steven.
Smallholder farmers operate in vertical supply chains. Therefore, an understanding of key opportunities and constraints up through the value chain becomes necessary for sustaining smallholder growth. Yet market analysis is of little value unless key private and public sector stakeholders agree to implement necessary reforms. This paper advocates an approach which marries together value chain analysis with a stakeholder taskforce to ensure that analysis of opportunities and constraints gets translated into actions that will facilitate commercial growth. Using Zambia’s cassava task force as an example, the paper describes the value chain task force method and identifies elements critical to its effective implementation.

Agricultural Value Chain Development in West Africa – Methodological framework and case study of mango in Benin AgEcon
van Melle, Cathelijne; Coulibaly, Ousmane; Hell, Kerstin.
Globalization and competitiveness of agricultural commodities could have significant potential benefits for food security and poverty reduction in West Africa. Participation in global trade and economy is potentially important but not enough to ensure benefits at all levels of the chains and equitable distribution of income for each participant. Efficiency is key in the commodity value chain, but effective support functions and services, infrastructure, legal and policy environment are important. This paper presents the framework of value chain concept and analysis, as a guide to enhance competitiveness of commodities at national, regional or global level. The paper applies the value chain framework to a case study on mango in Benin, West Africa. The...

An Analysis of the Recent Evolution of Mali’s Maize Subsector AgEcon
Diallo, Amadou Sekou.
In most developing countries, historically, the main strategy for improving the food sector has focused on increasing farm-level production. But in recent years, with the emphasis on value chain analysis, there has been much more focus on subsector studies, demand-driven approaches, and improving vertical coordination to assure product quality to final consumption markets. Millet, sorghum, and later rice were the traditional leading three cereal crops produced and consumed in Mali. Maize has trailed them for more than two decades, but from mid 1990s on, it has been produced and consumed in much larger quantities. Given the potentials of maize, developing and better organizing its subsector has the potential to not only increase revenues for maize farmers,...

ANÁLISE DA CADEIA DE VALOR E DOS CUSTOS DAS RAÇÕES DE UMA AGROINDÚSTRIA PROCESSADORA DE AVES AgEcon
Grunow, Aloisio; Gallon, Alessandra Vasconcelos; Beuren, Ilse Maria.
In a competitive environment, it is not enough to simply coordinate and promote the efficiency of a company’s internal activities. It is also necessary to ensure that the activities which form part of the company’s “value chain” are organized in a competitive way. From this perspective, the objective of this article is to analyze the “value chain” of poultry production and the cost of animal feed in every phase of the Seara Alimentos S.A chain. The methodology consisted of exploratory research in a case study using a predominantly qualitative approach. The results of the study are the stages of the productive cycle and the costs of the animal feed throughout the “value chain” in a poultry agribusiness. It was concluded that estimating the production’s...

Análisis de la factibilidad técnica, económica y financiera de la producción de hongo seta y su integración a la cadena de valor en la región de texcoco. Colegio de Postgraduados
Charles Galarza, Christian Jacques.
El cultivo de hongo comestible seta (Pleurotus Ostreatus), es un sistema de Bioconversión ecológica, pues lo que al hombre le es poco útil y que desecha; lo transforma en alimento proteínico, medicinal y en mercancía para venta. Esta alternativa productiva ha sido explotada con éxito desde hace mucho tiempo en otros países, donde al emplear tecnologías de bajo costo, adaptadas al clima, a los recursos agrícolas y a las Condiciones económicas; fortalecen el potencial de los hongos en su ámbito nacional. En tal sentido, el presente estudio recopila información de índole biológica, técnica, económica y financiera de un proyecto de inversión sobre el establecimiento de una planta productora de hongo seta en San Jerónimo Amanalco, Estado de México. Se pretende...

Caracterización socioeconómica, morfológica y bioquímica de una muestra etnográfica de maíz (Zea mays L.) raza bolita. Colegio de Postgraduados
Ramírez Jaspeado, Araceli.
El maíz es el cultivo más importante de México cuya superficie de siembra es de 8 millones de hectáreas con un rendimiento promedio de 3 ton/ha. Su aprovechamiento involucra los granos, tallos, espigas, raíces, olote y brácteas (“hoja para tamal”) utilizados para diversos propósitos en la alimentación humana, animal, medicinal e industrial. Se ha considerado que la principal forma de consumo del maíz es a través de la tortilla, donde, alrededor de 12.3 millones de toneladas de maíz se consumen en esta forma. En este sentido, los maíces mejorados han sido esenciales para dicho propósito, sin embargo, el uso de los maíces nativos o criollos, también ha sido de gran importancia ya que son un reservorio de la variabilidad genética y han sido la base de la...

Climate Change and International Markets for Australian Food Exports AgEcon
Creese, Jonathan; Marks, Nicki.
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to alert food producers to emerging market demands associated with climate change. Design/methodology/approach – The study draws on literature review and applied market research. Findings – Many food retailers are applying pressure to their value chains to measure and manage carbon emissions. Although consumers play a role, consumers are not the main driver compelling retailers to respond to climate change. Research limitations/implications – This study only interviewed retailers in the United Kingdom and Japan as these are markets that are of particular interest for Australian food exporters. Originality/value – Consumers and retailers in export markets are responding to climate change. The research suggests that...

Competitive positioning and value chain configuration in international markets for traditional food specialties AgEcon
Borch, Odd Jarl; Roaldsen, Ingrid H.E..
In this paper we discuss the relations between the increased quality standards of traditional food products and the structuring and management of the value chain. We address the importance of different quality dimensions, and how they are combined in superior strategic configurations to achieve competitive advantage in particular in up market segments. We elaborate on the competitive positioning tools and the resource configuration of the value chain necessary for creating sustainable competitive advantage for small and medium-sized enterprises. We present results from 11 in-depth interviews with representatives from the fragmented Norwegian value chain for lamb products. The results show that to achieve customer-oriented differentiation focus effect and...

Concepts, applications, and extensions of value chain analysis to livestock systems in developing countries AgEcon
Rich, Karl M.; Baker, Derek; Negassa, Asfaw; Ross, R. Brent.
The analysis of value chains has augmented our knowledge on the complexities, inter-linkages, distributional benefits, and institutional arrangements of production and marketing channels in developing countries. However, the analysis remains relatively qualitative and case-specific, with limited ability to rank or assess the impact of alternative interventions or to analyze sufficiently the complex market dynamics and feedbacks present in livestock systems. This paper offers insights on ways to improve the analytical rigor of the value chain methodology that combines both qualitative and quantitative approaches.

Has Australia fallen behind the strategic alliance contracting trend in the global food industry? If so, is government assistance warranted? AgEcon
Taylor, Philip J..
Since the 1970s, there has been a broad shift from arm‘s length to long-term strategic alliance procurement practices across nations and industries. This has happened for sound commercial reasons. Peculiarities of agricultural production have slowed this shift in many food industry sectors, but it is now proceeding apace – driven primarily by rapidly globalising supermarket chains. In most Australian agri-food sectors, few firms have the scale or level of sophistication that would make them attractive strategic alliance partners either for international food retailers or for their category managers. The reasons for this include a combination of past government failures (inappropriate policies) and failures or inefficiencies in a range of information...

Impact of the Administrative Regulations in the Wine Value Chain: The Spanish Case AgEcon
de Felipe, Isabel; Briz, Miguel; Briz, Teresa.
The wine value chain is characterized by its traditional nature. The transformation of the raw material makes lasting products with a high added value, which entails large price differences between producers and consumers. Given the socioeconomic important of this sector, it has specially been taken into account by the administration, with a high level of intervention. There is an ample range of interventions, from a qualitative and from a quantitative point of view. The main objective of all these policies is the intention of controlling the supply and stimulating the demand. The impact of these measures is considered in the short term, to solve the surplus problems. However, at the long run, it has a negative impact. The new framework of the wine...

MINŐSÉG A SERTÉSHÚSVERTIKUMBAN AgEcon
Nabradi, Andras.
Sokan és sokszor hangoztatják a minőségi termékelőállítás fontosságát, a mi-nőség fokozását, de kevesebben térnek arra ki, hogy végül is mit célszerű fokozni, milyen minőséget indokolt előállítani, mert eltérő minőségkategóriák léteznek az értéklánc folyamatában. Más a megítélés a termelőnél, más a feldolgozónál és teljesen más lehet a forgalmazónál. A végső „minőségellenőr” végül is a fogyasz-tó. Kérdés csupán az, hogy a fogyasztói értékítélet mennyire jelenik meg az ér-téklánc korábbi szakaszainál, ki mit tehet, illetve tesz a minőség növelése érde-kében. Szinte feltáratlan mindezek mellett a minőség költségeinek kérdésköre, a gazdaságilag optimális minőség. A tanulmány problémafelvető a sertéshúsverti-kumban, de hasonló és részletesebb vizsgálatok...

Quality Control in Non-Staple Food Markets: Evidence From India AgEcon
Fafchamps, Marcel; Hill, Ruth Vargas; Minten, Bart.
Using original data collected about growers, traders, processors, markets, and village communities, we compare the situation in four states – Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, and Orissa. We examine the way that information about crop attributes is conveyed (or not) along the value chain. We also document the infrastructure available at the level of the market. We find that little information circulates about unobservable crop characteristics. Growers receive a price premium when they dry, grade, and pack their produce, but we find no evidence that information about crop health and safety or agricultural practices circulates through the value chain or that growers are encouraged to follow specific agricultural practices for quality purposes. Market...

RED DE VALOR DEL MANGO Y SUS DESECHOS CON BASE EN LAS PROPIEDADES NUTRICIONALES Y FUNCIONALES AgEcon
Sumaya Martinez, Ma. Teresa; Sánchez Herrera, Leticia Mónica; Torres García, Gerardo; García Paredes, Diego.
The value chain is a new concept inside the agricultural development in Mexico that involves having in mind the demands of the consumers for the development of commercialization strategies for fruits. The nutritional and functional properties can add value to food. The mango and byproducts generated during its processing or marketing are a very important source of bioactive compounds with high added value, mostly dietary fiber, micronutrients, polyphenols, carotenoids, among many others. These can be valorisated through multidisciplinary research, innovation, technology transfer, development of market studies and business plans, as well as the accompaniment during the management and implementation of functional foods in agro-business.

REDES DE COLABORACIÓN, ESTRATEGIA EMPRESARIAL EN LA INSERCIÓN A CADENAS DE VALOR AgEcon
Arras Vota, Ana Maria; Fierro Murga, Luz Ernestina; Jaquez Balderrama, Jose Luis; Lopez Diaz, Julio Cesar.
This piece of work presents three cases: Caprica, Productores de Chihuahua and Los Porcicultores, all of which have united their efforts and created enterprises as a strategy through which the participants –small producers- generate networks to associate. This allows them the opportunity to insert in value chains and acquire better conditions for their goods, and at the same time they can give them an added value, and by doing this, they find themselves in a different state of integration and insertion in the value chain, which gives them the opportunity to face the challenges of actual life. This paper visualizes the enterprise from the systemic perspective, and as a collectivity of capabilities. Also, it presents the concept of network - individual or...

STRATEGIES FOR IMPROVING THE VALUE CHAIN OF CASTOR AS AN INDUSTRIAL RAW MATERIAL IN NIGERIA CIGR Journal
Ibeagha, Okwuchukwu Alan.
Castor is possibly one of Nigeria’s most under-appreciated assets. Its potential as an industrial raw material can be fully realized by a critical appraisal of its value chain. This article reviews Castor value chain in Nigeria and identifies the constraints and strategies for improving its use as an industrial raw material. The strategies proposed can serve as a guide for castor value addition among operators and policy makers in a bid to maximize castor industrial potentials. A review of the uses of castor after value addition indicated that it can be used in over 10 industries namely; agriculture, food, paper, electronics and telecommunication, textile, pharmaceutical, Cosmetic and Perfume, Paint, Lubricant, Plastic and Rubber industries. Constraints...

Supply Chain Management of Fresh Produce: Melons in Western China AgEcon
Zhang, Yanrong; Wei, Sherrie; Qiao, Zhixia.
The western part of China has a long history and reputation of growing a variety of quality melons largely due to its semi arid agronomic environment. In the past decade, the industry suffered from the interrelated issues of unreliable quality and intense price competition. Even though both the government and supply chain stakeholders are aware of the problems, there is a need to look at the issues from a supply chain perspective and new ways of managing the melon supply chains are to be explored. This paper analysed the melon supply chain in western China in the areas of logistical efficiency and supply chain relationship management. The results of the analysis offer insights for improving the efficiency of the melon supply chain and the competitiveness...

The role of institutions as actors influencing Uganda’s cassava sector JARTS
Mutyaba, Cedric; Lubinga, Moses Herbert; Ogwal, Richard O.; Tumwesigye, Steven.
We aim at mapping out a detailed framework that reveals the proportionate flow of cassava and its products along the value chain (VC). Furthermore, we aim at establishing the role of institutions and the linkages between institutions and other VC actors that influence the cassava VC in Uganda. We use both primary and secondary data obtained from four regions in Uganda. Results show that farmers, processors, transporters, traders, consumers and institutions are the major actors. There are four categories of institutions, viz, government, non-government, community based organisations and international agencies. Roles performed by institutions include: development and enforcement of policies, Research and Development (R&D), capacity building, and creation...
