Arcadia International® is committed to working actively with all sectors of the food chain to provide CLEAR VIEWS ON COMPLEX ISSUES, translated into effective solutions based on real industry technical and management expertise.
We recognise that the traditional business environment, in which the agricultural and food industries operate, is rapidly changing.
Achievement of sustainable agriculture and food quality is a high priority for input suppliers, growers, food companies, governments and regulatory authorities - all within the context of increasing concern about farming methods, their effects on the environment and ethical issues relating to food supply.
In particular, there are three major 'change mechanisms' impacting the food chain:
Consumer concerns and expectations, both real and perceived, are driving retailers and manufacturers to revise their management of the food chain, with practical consequences for all concerned parties;
New technologies, from agricultural biotechnology through precision farming to information technology, is creating new opportunities and challenges to assist agriculture and food marketing;
Legislation is increasingly being used to support the formation of new government bodies whilst, at the same time, directing the future shape of food production and land management.
Arcadia International® aims at combining the best available agro-food and feed expertise in a 'world class approach' to the food chain based on:
The best people for the job: The flexibility to make available the most appropriate skills to tackle each client's specific need/request;
Wide range of expertise: A truly multi-disciplinary consultant resource of expert management and technical skills, enhanced by scientific and academic resources where necessary;
