Investing In Agribusiness Value Addition Program
The produce-and-then-sell mentality of the commodity business is being replaced by the strategy of first determining what attributes consumer want in their food products and then creating or manufacturing products with those attributes. With the continuous shifting to a global economy, the international market for value-added products is growing. Market forces have led to greater opportunities for product differentiation and added value to raw commodities because of:
1. Increased consumer demands regarding health, nutrition and convenience
2. Efforts by food processors to improve their productivity.
3. Technological advances that enable producers to produce what consumers and processors desire.
Producers need to be responsive to consumer demands by producing what is desired. Attentiveness to consumer demands in quality, variety and packaging is important, because demographic trends show growth in the convenience-oriented, health-conscious and environmentally concerned sectors where price is not as important as quality. Research in value-addition shows that producers experience competitive advantages from processed products as compared to raw commodities.
