Supply Chain Strategies
ARE YOU IN-TOUCH WITH YOUR MARKET, OR DOES YOUR COMMUNICATION STRATEGY NEED UPDATING?
Supermarkets and processors have pioneered supplier arrangements, but in an era of shortages and growing consumer demand for specific products, knowledge of how farmers and growers operate is vital. Meanwhile, the need for agricultural input suppliers to get closer to farmers, processors and retailers has never been greater.
Independent Resource Limited has the knowledge, contacts and systems to provide this insight and develop successful supply chain arrangements.
Get to the heart of what is driving the availability of the agricultural produce your business relies on. We will provide you with a detailed analysis of market drivers, supply projections and giving you strategic suggestions.
Do you want to challenge or motivate your agricultural suppliers or customers?
We can prepare and pose questions for them or draw up scenarios you might want to discuss with them. We can also arrange face-to-face meetings with farmers and suppliers.
THINK TANK SERVICES
Do you have a supply arrangement or challenge that could benefit from some fresh and independent thinking?
