Global Food Supply Chain Risk


Blue Ocean Strategy Using Supply Chain Management

Day 1 - Monday, May 11, 2015, 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM PDT

Course Description:

Global food supply chain risk is about more than data analytics!

The food supply chain begins in fields and runs through processors and into warehouses in the destination countries. It includes all types of foods--agriculture, meats, and sea foods in all ways—fresh, live, chilled, frozen, and more.

Our seminar is unique in that we know supply chain management and can discuss what food supply chain risk is and how to understand it. This includes logistics and trade. We will discuss what food supply chain risk is, causes, the supply chain risk model, methodology, data analysis and analytics, data sources, risk identification, validation, and assessment.

Topic Background:

Many discussions of supply chain risk do not deal with the actual supply chain-despite the name supply chain risk. As a result, they do not address and overlook important risk areas. It also creates gaps in responsibilities. They take broad or narrow perspectives. They may focus on assets. Or they use something like a picture of a ship to show the supply chain. You cannot understand and detect supply chain risk if you do not know supply chains. The reality is that a risk has been created in the supply chain by the limited way the global food supply chain is defined and recognized by many.

The impact of supply chain risk can be dramatic. From health and well-being for consumers through to business notoriety can occur. It can occur for reasons that are often discussed. There are also logistics factors, supplier issues, trade problems, and even internal company reasons.

The business world is global and interconnected for customers, suppliers, and competitors. There are many stakeholders and participants. A single international shipment may have 17 firms involved.

The World Bank understands supply chain risk. The risk affects all companies-from multinationals to small-medium enterprises around the globe.

Supply chain risk cannot be mitigated until it is first identified, validated, and assessed. That is the foundation of any risk management program.
