Agribusiness companies in Peru are known particularly for being created as family businesses
during their early stages. Therefore, their growth has been disorganized, informal and empirical. During the last decade, the growth of international demand for high-quality agricultural products, supported by the signature of free-trade agreements, has benefited agroindustry with private foreign investment. Such situation has prompted Peruvian agribusiness companies to standardize and automatize their processes to be more competitive. El Pedregal is a Peruvian agribusiness company dedicated to cultivating, harvesting, packaging and exporting fresh fruits.
It owns three farms in the coastal area of Peru that makes the supply chain more complex. This scenario can cause additional, undesired expenses, overtime and low quality of working hours. This research paper focuses on enhancing the supply process of this agribusiness company. To develop this study, we use the supply chain strategy methodology detailed in Perez-Franco (2016), the Lean Supply philosophy and the big data tool QlikView. This set of techniques allowed us to identify the root problem of El Pedregal’s logistics area and to organize a new procurement process.
