Japan's Ministry Of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Selects Accenture PLC To Support Food Supply Chain Project


Wednesday, 4 Jul 2012 10:00pm EDT 

Accenture PLC announced a management consulting contract with the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries for a project to improve food supply capabilities in natural disasters and emergencies. The Ministry's 'Project for Measures to Improve Food Supply Capabilities in an Emergency' is to address the national priority of building an enhanced food supply chain network. Accenture will analyze the cases where the food supply chain became dysfunctional in an emergency, such as during the Great East Japan Earthquake, and the cases where it functioned well due to cooperation among business partners. Following the analysis, Accenture will propose guidelines for collaborative agreements among food suppliers aimed at maintaining business operations during disasters and emergencies. Accenture will also hold meetings and workshops for food suppliers nationwide to disseminate the new guidelines and to support the development of advanced business continuity plans.
