Supply chain consulting and value chain development

The organization of supply chains is essential to guarantee production efficiency, economic performance and quality of service for all players in the chain.

Only the structured mobilization of a number of players within the same supply chain can provide effective, sustainable solutions to ensure the sustainability of the supply chain and a fair distribution of wealth between the various players. 

Our approach to supply chain management

  • Player analysis and mapping
    • In-depth market analysis and identification of the key players in your field of activity, and mapping of the various stakeholders (suppliers, distributors, partners and competitors) to give you a complete overview of the ecosystem in which you operate. 
  • Define a strategy for structuring high-performance, sustainable supply chains
    • Identify growth opportunities, optimization levers and ways of improving your competitiveness, while taking environmental and social issues into account.  
  • Management of relationships between each player in the value chain
    • Whether in the context of partnership relations, integration of activities or adoption of an agility model, we guide you in setting up effective cooperation and coordination practices, and help you establish fruitful collaborations to optimize the flow of information and goods between the various players.

What is an economic sector? 


The term “value chain” is used to designate all the activities involved in the production of a product or commodity, as well as related activities upstream and downstream of production. 

Our role as consultants is to support your organization in the study of your strategic challenges, and in the analysis, development and securing of your strategic supply chains. 

The example of an agricultural sector 

If we take an agricultural sector as an example, the sector is made up of the following players: 

  • Agricultural production: farmers, cooperatives, confederations, unions, manufacturers, etc. 
  • Upstream activities: advice, equipment, supply of inputs (seeds, plant protection products, fertilizers). 
  • Downstream activities: collection, logistics, transport, storage, processing, distribution, etc. 

The effective development and structuring of an industry and its supply chain is therefore a matter of getting the various players in the ecosystem to work together, so as to collectively achieve greater value creation.

What are the challenges for the supply chain?

Key issues to be addressed

One of the keys to economic growth lies in the ability to bring together and foster collaboration between industry players, thereby fostering development and innovation. 

Globalization, climate change, demographic shifts and technological advances are all factors that are disrupting existing industries. However, it is essential to integrate them in order to reduce imbalances in ecosystems and enrich them to build more efficient and sustainable value chains. 

It’s well known that the development of value chains is crucial to boosting the attractiveness of a sector and stimulating an entire economy. 

Buyer skills 

From a professional standpoint, the development of the supply chain requires specific skills. Graduates and professionals trained in this field play an essential role in ensuring harmonious coordination between the various players in the chain, from planning to execution. The supply chain manager, in particular, has a key role to play in implementing effective, sustainable strategies. 

The question of sustainability

At a global level, optimized supply chain management contributes to corporate sustainability. By streamlining processes, reducing waste and adopting environmentally-friendly practices, your organization can minimize its impact on the planet. 

This fosters a positive image with stakeholders, and helps meet growing expectations in terms of social and environmental responsibility.
