RESAS 22-27: SRUC-b5-1 Mapping Major Supply Chains Within The Scottish Food And Drink Industry.

Project Details


This proposal addresses RQ 1 in Topic B5 of the original ITGF about the mapping of Scottish supply chains to identify opportunities to add/recapture value. The purpose of this research projects is, using a value chain approach that combines quantitative and qualitative methods, to map major food supply chains both within Scotland and those where Scottish industries are heavily involved elsewhere (i.e., UK and Europe) to improve the understanding in the way they operate. To propose a methodology to be able to update changes in the maps. To provide a modelled analysis of individual sectors that demonstrates where value is created, added, and lost during the supply chain and to use the modelled analysis to simulate various scenarios whereby the value in the supply chain could be increased and distributed in Scotland among producers and processors.
