It all starts at the farm

For a consumer packaged goods company with a focus on the food and beverage sector, it all starts at the farm. We at Solutions4Business are experts in analyzing the supply chain right where it starts at the farm all the way through to the final consumer.

The global economy is split into three sectors: agriculture, manufacturing and services. As of 2013, agriculture accounted for just 6 percent of global GDP, having been overtaken by both the manufacturing sector and services sector in importance during the past several centuries. Nevertheless, agriculture is the
most important of the three economic sectors when it comes to human survival.

In developing countries, agriculture retains a significantly larger share of the overall economy than in developed countries. Moreover, due to limited automation in the farming sectors of developing countries, agriculture accounts for a much larger share of the labor force compared to developed countries. For example, while less than one percent of the US labor force was employed by the agricultural sector in 2013, almost 50 percent of India’s labor force was employed by the agricultural sector.

The world’s largest agriculture producers are China, India and the US. These three also happen to be the world’s three most populated countries. The world population is expected to grow from around 7 billion in 2013 to close to 10 billion by 2050, putting huge strains on the global farming sector and on the environment.

Among the key factors impacting the global agricultural sector include:

  • Increasing automation of the presently highly mechanized agricultural sectors in developing countries.
  • Continued innovation (e.g., GPS enabled tractors, robotic milking facilities and more) in the already technologically advanced agricultural sectors in developed countries.
  • Rapid growth in the African agricultural sector that is presently highly unproductive in spite of substantial water resources and arable land in the continent. Numerous countries from heavily populated Asia and largely unarable parts of the Middle East have been granted large scale long-term farmland leases throughout Africa in recent years in order for them to grow crops to then export back to their home countries.
  • Development of new GMO seeds and their proliferation in spite of continuing debate about the ethics behind GMO.
  • Continued boom in organic farming in the developed world.
  • Persistent water shortages in some of the world’s most populated regions such as South Asia.
  • Booming growth in meat demand in the developing world putting huge strains on the environment.
