In this Menternship, you are required to work on a unique problem around the operations of UrbanKisaan, as a company. At their farms, they produce multiple different types of vegetables and other herbs that cater to a retail as well as subscription based customer demand.
One of the problems that has been currently identified by the company is minimising the wastage from the produce, based on the customer demand and limited shelf-life of the produce.
Based on the harvest time and post production processes, along with the logistical chain and customer demand over the past year, you are required to develop an effective operations model that helps them minimise their overall wastage. This model must help the company decrease their revenue loss from an overall business perspective.
UrbanKisaan is a hyper-local vertical farming company, where they are creating a completely transparent supply chain with a low-carbon footprint. Their growing technique helps save 95% water, yet produce 30 times more as compared to traditional farms.
