The paper proposes an enhancement to a focal company in the dairy supply chain, in order to support sustainable performance. The authors conclude that previous life cycle assessment LCA studies did not recommend for dairy supply chain or use this approach to assess the environmental impacts in this chain. A cradle-to-gate attributional life cycle assessment LCA study performed in a focal company and considering its transport and processing stages, and three scenarios were proposed as suitable. The impacts derive from energy use and transportation of feedstocks, and the use of cleaning products and certain types of packaging materials.
Increasingly, value chain approaches are integrated with multi-stakeholder processes to facilitate inclusive innovation and value chain upgrading of smallholders. This pathway to smallholder integration into agri-food markets has received limited analysis. This article analyses this integration through a case study of an ongoing smallholder dairy development programme in Tanzania. Value chain upgrading and innovation systems perspectives were combined in an analytical framework to interpret the findings, which show that multi-stakeholder processes enhance horizontal and vertical coordination but limit process and product upgrading. The main conclusion is that, although such processes may catalyze smallholder market inclusion, their effects are largely bounded by existing value chain structures e. This calls attention to the starting points of value chain interventions and the socio-political dynamics that are part of multi-stakeholder processes.
