  6. 6. What is an Agriculture value chain? An agricultural value chain is a way of describing the different ‘links’ required to take a product from the farm to the end consumer.
  7. 7. Who are value chain ‘actors’? At the heart of the agricultural value chain concept is the idea of actors connected along a chain, producing and delivering goods to consumers through a sequence of activities
  8. 8. Two categories of actors Main actors - those who buy and sell the product as it moves along the chain. Supporting actors - those who provide services help move the product along the chain.
  9. 9. What is value chain analysis? Value chain analysis is simply a tool that can assist people involved in the chain to better understand the business world in which they operate Definition of value chain analysis Value chain analysis is a tool for looking at every step and actor along the value chain to identify both weaknesses to be resolved and opportunities for increasing profits for all involved in the chain.
  10. 10. Practical outcomes of VC Analysis Example: Fresh Drinking Coconuts for Hotels and Restaurants. If the value chain analysis undertaken: Situation: Large market exists, lots of coconut trees but drinking coconuts are NOT available in the Hotels and Restaurants. Why? Weakness in chain: Lack of awareness and marketing of drinking coconuts Action to be taken: A project to assist in making Drinking coconuts available for tourist and local (the Kiribati Drinking Coconut Project).

  12. 12. Steps in the Value Chain Analysis Step1: Drawing a value chain map Step 2: Putting real and accurate information into the map Step 3: Identifying the services each actor provides and returns received for these services Step 4: Assessing the market Step 5: Assessing strengths and weaknesses for all actors along the chain and ways to capitalise on strengths and minimise weaknesses Step 6: Developing a plan to improve the value chain
