Value Chain Development

Value Chain Analysis & Development

Fair & Sustainable works on developing value chains that are socially, environmentally and economically sound. We believe in believe that a fair benefit sharing between actors results in stronger and more sustainable value chains of which all actors involved gain

F&S uses a systemic approach to value chains, by including all actors inside and around a value chain, such as (financial or technical) business providers and the institutional environment. We believe that a healthy and strong value chain is a diverse value chain, including different sized companies and different groups of people.

A value chain is a set of linkages between a number of independent enterprises involved in the production, processing, trade, consumption and disposal of a particular product or service. Each phase adds value and the whole chain aims to satisfy the demand of the final consumer and to increase profits for the actors involved through increased efficiency and competitiveness.

F&S actively works together with our clients, including governments, companies and NGOs, to identify the most promising value chains and intervention opportunities. We analyse the selected value chains and give advice on how to develop the value chains. We offer coaching, training, capacity building for different actors, and facilitate and develop multi-stakeholder partnerships.
