Abstract

The growing consumption in the world of super-foods, such as quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa), presents new opportunities for a small business that is active on the transformation and marketing, which allow them to make the most out of the positive conditions of the market in a rapid and flexible way. The current research proposes the optimization of the supply chain for BAMSA Company, using strategic diagnosis methodologies and operational analysis to carry out an analysis in multiple dimensions that allows decisions to be made in the short, medium, and long term. As a result, it is determined that the strategic flexibility of an efficient supply chain gives priority to operational activities which allow growth objectives to be achieved. For that matter, an adjustment in the supply chain's sourcing strategies of a pull-push type, based on forecast demand, should allow an increase in sales of USD $239,475 dollars annually.
