Logistics Management - International Fresh Business Management

International Fresh Business Management To find 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 in good condition, healthy and ‘value for money’? All these questions and many more, have to be answered by professionals in the world of fresh business.

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 aspects relevant for selling fresh produce: 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. Students pay attention to buying, organization, production, transport planning and packaging. They learn how to manage the supply chain and how to build long term relations with satisfied suppliers and customers. They also acquire basic knowledge of accountancy, economics, management skills, communication skills and Dutch and English.
