Supply Chain Analysis

The food industry, throughout the value chain, has a tremendous opportunity, as well as an obligation, to meet the needs of new, more sophisticated and more demanding

consumers while satisfying shareholders’ demands for returns—and in doing so creating a sustainable food supply for the new millennium.

The optimised food supply chains are good for increasing profits of farmers and other producers, revitalise rural economies, and give consumers access to fresh, fairly-priced foods.

Why engage?

  • Improved negotiating positions for farmers
  • Increased communication between producer and consumer
  • Reduced transportation costs
  • Increased transparency
  • Reduced risk
  • Increased overall quality
  • Keeping more of the resulting profits

At Monash we established the Global Value Chains Research Network (GVCRN) conducts research on issues in global value chains, including supply chain issues, governance and regulation, ethical and social issues, operations and integration, and sustainability.
