Why the chain as a model?

When producing potatoes, the following elements are involved:

  • Research & Development
  • Growing Potatoes as a Business
  • Harvesting & Storage
  • Trade & Distribution
  • Processing
  • Consumption

When organised into a potato value chain, arranged as links, these elements work together to realise the joint end product. Every successive link adds value to the product. To ensure maximum efficiency and the highest-quality product, each link in itself is optimised. Cooperation between links is also optimised.
