About this Unit
Students will develop understanding of the integrated nature of the agri-food value chain (supply and demand) from economic, environmental and social perspectives. Integrative processes and tools from established value chains will be evaluated in the context of changing consumer sentiment. Through analysis of economic and environmental gains (e.g. water and energy savings), students will identify emerging opportunities and challenges for improved and/or alternative food distribution systems. Analytical and reporting tools will be used to develop competence in data management, with emphasis on increasing communication from consumer to producer.
