Supplier Development Model

icon representing supplier partnership

In concrete terms, our development model allows the partner supplier to develop its ranges and fruits derivatives, improve its agronomic know-how and also its knowledge of processing techniques thanks to the advice of the Forcomex team.

On the other hand it allows customers to have at their disposal the capabilities of a supplier of choice including agricultural land, unique know-how and a proven reliability.

Our model is based on 3 main lines :

  • Development of available derivatives

  • Development of fruits ranges

  • A move towards vertical integration

Development of available derivatives

  • Widening the range of products produced for a given fruit
     

  • Yield optimization
     

  • Adaptation capacity depending on sizes and qualities received
     

  • Diversification of opportunities to reduce the customer/industry risk
     

  • Local partnerships with processors of the same fruits in different derivatives to broaden the supply base

Development of fruits ranges

  • Expansion of varieties and fruit species used
     

  • Play on harvest successions to improve the utilization rate of extraction lines
     

  • Stimulate the search for coherence on the types of fruits in order to propose complete ranges or blends

Vertical integration

  • Owned plantations
     

  • Long-term supply contracts on other parcels
     

  • Agronomic R&D work to improve yields, quality and reduce treatments
     

  • Direct or indirect presence on the fresh fruit market
