BIOL12108 Agricultural Value Chain Management
This course examines the scientific basis of value adding in food production, processing and distribution. It covers management of inputs, production practices, post production product handling and processing, and wholesale and retail distribution in agricultural supply chains. Chains from different agricultural industries are analysed to identify where product attributes that are valued by the consumer have been incorporated, and on-farm profitability is assessed within these chain case studies to demonstrate the links between valued product attributes and grower returns. The use of value chain analysis tools in assessing the functioning of existing supply chains is demonstrated. The course provides students with an understanding of sectors of the agricultural industry beyond on-farm production, knowledge of the tools that can be used to analyse supply chains, and awareness of important aspects of supply chain functioning that underlie profitable agricultural businesses.
