Overview of Feed

These solutions cover the whole process, from the delivery of raw materials through to the shipping of the finished products, with decision-making support and full traceability. Food security is a concern and priority for majority of nations. The key risks for food security are population growth, fossil fuel dependence, hybridization, genetic engineering, price setting by cartels etc. The key challenges such as global water crisis, land degradation, climate change, and agricultural diseases spurring heavy grain trade across countries. The demand for formulated feed is increasing continuously demanding effective and efficient grain supply chains. Many private and public service organizations are functioning on grain procurement and distribution, captive and commercial feed production. The inefficiencies in feed and grain supply chain can increase costs and create food availability problems. Our experienced feed and grain industry consultants can help public and private organizations by providing advisory and consultancy services in strategy planning, supply chain design, effective business process design and automation through appropriate ERP systems, and robust supply chain planning.
