1Framework for K-Farm Green Value Chain Production of Carambola
2Developing the Framework Part 1Developing the Framework
3Sustainable Agriculture Sustainable agriculture is a global agendaEnvironmental healthEconomic profitabilitySocial and economic equity“meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”Stewardship of natural and human resourcesinvolves maintaining and supporting this vital resource base for the long term.consideration of stakeholders of the industry, laborers, rural communities, consumer health and safety, both in the present and future.
4Need for sustainable agriculture Constraints on natural resources – real constraintsHigh production costs – higher risks, competition for resourcesConsumers awarenessBetter informedBetter educatedGreater purchasing powerSupermarkets – competition among peers for customersImporting countries – global concern, Trade barriersFood quality – food safety, food nutrition
5Benefits of greening the agri-food value chain Enhance food safety – thro’ improving coordination with suppliersImprove environmental conservation – thro’ demands on suppliersReduce risk and liabilities in production – less recalls of productsLower costs – thro’ better integration with suppliers, better design, 3Rs’Improve productivity – introduce efficient operations management,Create innovative opportunities for practitionersCreate market access – demands by importers, supermarketsCreate corporate imageCreate competitive advantage – costs, market, credibility, price
6Guiding principles of green agri-food value chain Food safety and hygieneClean, safe to eat, no contaminationFood qualityFiber and nutrition contentEnvironmentally sustainable agricultureSustainable use of natural resourcesProtection of ecosystemEconomically sustainable agricultureFair tradingFair price
7Approaches to green agri-food value chain Create open marketInformation access, open communicationCreate competition field - free restriction on retailRemove price control, export subsidy, import dutyTransfer of knowledge and technologyResearch priority, practical technologyGood guidanceCommitment, transparent, 3rd party auditBuild capacitySkilled managers and extension officersInstall basic infrastructure (EE)Transportation systemCommunication systemProduction technology
8Implementing green agri-food value chain Promoting awareness – involve the private sector, school childrenDevelop marketing and market accessCreate green network for stakeholders – forums, championsIncorporate guidelines, standards & codes of practiceVoluntary participationDevelop national standards – benchmark, certificationOther standards – pesticides control, energy, waste disposalIntroduce measures to improve productivityIntroduce traceability systemBuild credibility and consumer confidence
9Elements of a green agri-food value chain framework Deterioration of ecosystem from population pressureLoss of bio-diversity from expansion and intensive cultivationNeed to review natural resource management strategies for food productionNeed to review wastewater and toxic waste management from food productionNeed to address consumers demands for safe, clean and sustainable agri-food productionRationale of greenagri-food value chainConceptualGuiding principles of green agri-food value chainFood quality, safety and hygieneFood securityEnvironmentally sustainable agricultureEconomically sustainable agricultureGreen agri-food value chain allows the simultaneous improvement in agri-food production and environment protection by analyzing critical points of agri-food production, from growing to consumption, lowering risks and liabilities on the environment and increasing productivity at each stage of the process.Consumer awareness is the biggest driver to the green agri-food value chain processThe competition of supermarkets forces them to insist on growers and suppliers compliance to evolving standards of food safety, environmental sustainability and affordable priceConcepts of greenagri-food value chain
10Implementing policies in Monitoring / evaluating The business relationships between upstream stakeholders are vital to promote green agri-food production with mutual benefitsEstablish open market trading system, effective TOT, develop clear guidelines to production standards and capacity buildingEstablish positive enabling environment: land allocation, infrastructure, R&D capabilityReview agriculture policyEstablish social / political support to green agri-food productionApproaches to greenagri-food value chainApproachDevelop awareness campaigns of green agri-food productionCreate green network among all stakeholders of the chainIntroduce and incorporate green guidelines (Codes of Practice) in agri-food chainImplementing policies ingreen agri-foodvalue chainImplementRegular review and up-date of standardsBenchmark to national standardsAdvance from voluntary compliance to certificationAchieve the goals and targets of signatory and international protocolsMonitoring / evaluatinggoals and targets
11Green agri-food value chain in practice: Case for K-Farm GAP QMS
13K-Farm GAP QMS implements the efficient and profitable production of high qualityfruit that is healthy and safe for consumption,in systems that are practical andenvironmentally sustainable.
14Guiding principles of K-Farm GAP QMS Food safety and hygiene – allergy, sickness and deathFood quality – nutrition and fiber contentEnvironmentally sustainable agricultureIPM, ICM, Conservation agricultureSustainable uses of resourcesEconomically sustainable agricultureFarming systems (inputs, productivity, profitability)Production efficiency (management, marketing)Social sustainabilityWorkers welfare
15K-Farm GAP Model - approach Voluntary participationSelf regulationAcquire specific knowledge and technologyNetworking with industry stakeholdersProvide intimate extension serviceLess inputs and lower costsMarket orientationIntroducing risk and decision making
