Delicious tomatoes on the vine, healthy nutritious salads, a rich variety of colourful flowers and plants, new sustainable ways of poultry and meat production, etc. On a daily basis, the innovative and diverse agribusiness region between the rivers Rhine and Maas in the Netherlands and Germany is working on pleasing the growing demands of the dynamic market in Europe and abroad. To find all these fresh products in today’s supermarkets is regarded as absolutely normal. But how do they find their way to the shopping baskets of the consumers? How are they produced, packed, traded, transported and sold? Who ‘develops’ new food concepts? And, very important, how is it guaranteed that everything is good and healthy and ‘value for money’? All these questions and many more, are answered by professionals in the world of the fresh industry. The new Fontys study programme “International Fresh Business Management (IFBM)” will precisely answer this question. From production to consumers, a product finds its way through a lot of hands. It follows a chain of further processing steps –the so called Fresh Supply Chain. The product will be further processed, repackaged, refined and appear in commercials. Many steps and people are involved, until a product finds its way to the plate of the consumer in a fresh condition. International Fresh Business Management is a study course that combines marketing, logistics, economics and the knowledge of the fresh chain for local, regional and international markets. Food marketing addresses all relevant aspects for selling fresh products: from market research and analysis to the development of strategic marketing plans and the development and implementation of operational marketing and sales plans. Food logistics organizes the flow of fresh produce from seed to plate. You pay attention to buying, organization, production and transport planning and packaging. You learn how to manage the supply chain and how to build long term relationships with satisfied suppliers and customers. You also acquire a basic knowledge of accountancy, economics, management skills, communication skills and Dutch and English.... [-]
