In order to create a fair income for all actors in the supply chain, sustainable production and trade systems are essential. For this to happen, long-term collaboration is needed, where all stakeholders in a supply chain work together, even pre-competitively, to improve quality, yield and smallholder farmer livelihood. Long-term collaboration also secures future supplies of commodities, vital for the production of many food and non-food products.
Understanding the world requires data to be analysed. The same applies for supply chains. If you want to improve the quality and sustainability of supply chains, you will need to gather data from all stakeholders in the supply chain and analyse it in order to make the best-informed decisions.
