The food system refers to all of the activities, direct and indirect, that are involved in the production, processing, transportation, sale and consumption of food.
From government policy to agricultural input use to retailer promotions, the food system view takes a wider lens than the traditional value chain view.
The global food system is vast and complex but understanding how it works is fundamental to building environmentally and socially sustainable supply chains. It is vital that we understand the food system in a global context in order to see clearly the linkages, relationships and unintended consequences that occur when feeding the world.
At Farrelly and Mitchell our team of experienced food and agriculture consultants, along with our network of international and in-market sector specialists, allow us to see whole food systems in a global context. In our many years of experience consulting within the agribusiness supply system, we have performed deep dives throughout the value chain. We have also gained invaluable insights and expertise in subsectors within the industry.
We are well acquainted with the wider themes that affect the global food system such as policy, technology and sustainability. Our blend of government, NGO and industry partners and clients have grounded our understanding of the food system at all levels
