10 IMPORTANT TIPS TO MAXIMIZE SUPPLY CHAIN ...

Boosting Supply Chain Sustainability



By Deborah Catalano Ruriani





Sustainable business practices and supply chains reduce waste, cut costs, and improve profit margins. Alan Amling, director of global logistics and distribution marketing at UPS, offers the following tips to help businesses improve supply chain sustainability.




1. Avoid reinventing the wheel. Minimizing waste is the first step in sustainability. Before investing in your own supply chain technology, distribution center (DC), or delivery fleet, consider using existing resources through a third-party logistics (3PL) provider. Many 3PLs have the resources—from offering an expedited service to storing parts in a field stocking location—to help you expand or improve your business.



2. Map your supply chain. Ensure that all stops along your supply chain—from production facilities to warehouses and DCs to customer locations—are optimally aligned. A well-mapped supply chain can reduce transportation legs, cutting fuel costs and carbon …

GREENHOUSE MANGOES THRIVE IN JAPAN ...

Entrepreneurs cultivate mangoes in Hokkaido




It must be obvious to anyone that tropical fruit thrives in warm climates. But mangoes grown in cold, snowy Hokkaido?





An Otofuke farm is doing just that, and it plans to market its first batch of mangoes in November 2013 under the brand name "Hakugin no Taiyo"--roughly translated as snowy sun.




The farm is cultivating mangoes by drawing hot water from a spa in nearby Tokachigawa Onsen to heat greenhouses throughout the winter months.



The project is the brainchild of an Obihiro, Hokkaido-based team of entrepreneurs charged with creating new industry in the region.




The idea was first generated in 2010, when Hiroyuki Nakagawa, head of the group, visited Nichinan, Miyazaki Prefecture, where mangoes are grown. A mango grower told him that it could be possible to grow mangoes in Hokkaido in December.




Mangoes are usually harvested from spring through summer in Japan. As a result, the Christmas and New Year season falls between harvests.

DATOS DE PRODUCCION DE MANGO PERUANOS HAN CAIDO FUERTEMENTE ...

Estos datos ya no concuerdan....

Ocupando el séptimo lugar en producción de mangos del mundo
Perú concentró en 2011 su mayor exportación de mango a mercados como EU y Europa



Perú es el séptimo país con mayor rendimiento por hectárea en la producción de mangos del mundo, según información de la Organización de las Naciones Unidas para la Agricultura y la Alimentación (FAO), informó el pasado domingo la Sociedad de Comercio Exterior del Perú (ComexPerú). (DUDABLE DATO)



En el 2010 el país alcanzó 18 toneladas por hectárea, ubicándose en la séptima posición del ranking mundial por rendimiento de mangos, mientras que países como India, China y Tailandia apenas alcanzaron las 6,3, 9,4 y 8,2 toneladas por hectárea, respectivamente. (ESTE AñO ES CONTRARIO CON 1-2 toneladas/hectaria)




Ello pese a que India es el primer productor mundial de mangos y en el 2010 alcanzó 16,3 millones de toneladas, China 4,4 millones, Tailandia 2,6 millones y Pakistán 1,8 millones, entre otros.



Perú exportó en el 2010 ma…

Northern Territory mango growers say they support an increase in the levy imposed on each box of fruit they sell.



The Federal Government is expected to announce in the next few months whether the Australian Mango Industry Association can raise the levy from 12 cents to 30 cents a tray for marketing and research purposes.

The proposed move has been met with opposition from Queensland growers.


Territory Mango Industry Association president Ian Baker says the disagreement may be over what will be done with the extra money.



"I suspect the argument may be less about the 18 cents (extra) and more about value for money," he said.


"It is not a small amount of money.



"It is probably about $20,000 or $30,000 in the business that I am associated with."



Mr Baker says any extra …
