Challenges in Maintaining Organic Food Supply Chains
Risk and threat of pests
Organic food supply chains rely on organic farming. They face unprecedented risks from pests and other crop destroying factors. Moreover, it is costly and time consuming for farmers to switch to organic farming. They can’t use prohibited substances and pesticides 36 months before the produce is grown, thereby reducing the number of organic farmers and suppliers that can meet industry demands.

Transporting organic food
Transporting organic food products and keeping it separate from non-organic produce is one of the major challenges. Companies offering organic and non-organic food products have to use two different machines for each step of production to maintain organic food standards and practices. This increases production costs significantly. To gain comprehensive insights into the factors impacting the production costs , reach out to our experts now!
Insufficient growth of organic food
The seasonality of organic food crops makes it difficult for suppliers to meet supply chain demand. Companies have to collaborate with multiple suppliers from different regions to source items for one type of product. This leads to high import costs and complicates the supply chain.
