[lofo List] U of R seminar on Friday, Jan. 26: ... market-driven agricultural economy ...
The first research presentation in The Faculty of Business
Administration's winter series will take place on Friday, January
26 in room ED 616 at 1:30 pm. Dr. Sylvain Charlebois will present:
"The Gateway to a market-driven agricultural economy: A framework
for Demand Chain Management in the food industry." All are welcome.
It has been recognized that agriculture and food companies have a
long tradition for being commodity-driven, with an emphasis on
production technology, high volumes, and quality consistency. With
Canada’s Asian-Pacific Gateway and Corridor Initiative(1), the
abilities to understand customer needs and to adapt to a wider
variety of customer situations will become crucial. The purpose of
this presentation will be to provide a structured demand chain
design framework that can be linked with Gateway and Corridor
management practices. Since a direct correlation exists between the
wealth of a nation and how it consumes food, we first present five
utilities and several factors that are perceived differently by
customers once a nation becomes affluent. We then present supply
and demand thrusts that could leverage Canada’s position in
international food trade with Asian-Pacific countries. Finally,
some analysis and limitations will be presented.
(1) Canada’s Asian-Pacific Gateway and Corridor Initiative seeks to
enhance Canada’s commerce with the Asian-Pacific region, increase
the Gateway’s shares of North America-bound imports from Asia, and
improve the efficiency and reliability of the Gateway for Canadian
and North American exports (Government of Canada, 2006).
