Woody Maijers

Expertise
Value creation in the fresh chain is a very strategic issue. Most new value adding fresh food concepts are based on collaboration in the supply chain. Woody Maijers develops since 1990 new value chain concepts in the agro food sector and fresh sector in particular. Analysing the needs of the market and translation into new products and concepts is the core business of Woody. In most cases strategic chain interventions are needed: new élan of collaboration between the current supply chain partners, re-focus of the potential in the current supply chain or sometimes inviting new partners. Due to the fact, innovation is a constant factor. Woody Maijers acts since 2007 as The Value Chain Coach, his own company, to coach the chain partners to build themselves solid partnerships for continuously fresh innovations. Woody developed his competences based on his involvement in more than 300 value chain projects national and international, with a total innovation budget of more than 100 million euro. Since 2003 he is professor value chain management at the Inholland university of applied science in Delft Netherlands.
