Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The Peruvian anchovy fishery sector is the largest in the world, producing about 30% of the fishmeal and oil, as well as its derivatives. Given this context, the internal economy benefits from the importance of this industry with decisions related to design, plan, and execute their operation plans in the whole value network. This research shows how companies in this sector can seize the opportunities presented by the market through decisions related to internal strengths. The current study is applied in a company dedicated to the extraction, production, and commercialization of marine food and ingredients, which are processed strategically in four production plants located along the Pacific Ocean. The objective of this research is to impact positively on the corporate strategy, through the characterization, evaluation, and improvement of the procurement process.
