Agriculture & Food Consulting was the initial meaning of the acronym AFC. The company name has changed several times since the foundation in 1973. However the core competencies have not been changed until now. Our expertise focusses mainly on the food value chain.
This system covers the vertical connected business sectors from the agricultural input industries (like agrochemicals or agricultural machinery) to the various consumer interfaces (like the food retail sector or catering). Embedded are wholesalers, the food processing industries and other parts of the complex system. Therefore our concept of the food value chain is even more comprehensive than the meaning of "from the stable to the table". The food value chain includes also the suppliers of the agricultural sector, public institutions, service providers and other involved sectors.
