Sustainable value chain development
We conduct value chain analyses and development planning for our clients in a variety of sectors, including agriculture, forestry, fisheries and tourism. When analysing a value chain, we investigate all aspects and role-players from source to market to identify their respective strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. This informs our multi-stakeholder action plans for supply chain development, allowing small and medium businesses to upgrade their activities in these chains.
SKA worked in collaboration with national and international partners to develop over a period of three years a sustainable avocado supply chain between farmers in the Limpopo Province of South Africa and a prominent Dutch retailer.
SKA was contracted by the Swaziland Sugar Association to develop, in collaboration with local stakeholders, a locally owned and sustainability shared value strategy and plan.
SKA implemented a Fisheries Improvement Project in collaboration with WWF-SA. This project involved the value chain analysis and benchmarking of small scale fishery practises against the Fairtrade International Small Producer Organization and Trade Standards and the Marine Stewardship Council Standards to determine development needs for more sustainable practises and entering formal supply chains.
