Partenariats stratégiques pour la sécurité alimentaire en Méditerranée - PSAM : rapport d'étape 2 : besoins et opportunités des coopérations inter-entreprises agroalimentaires en Méditerranée – Enquête BOCAM

Abstract : This report aims is to analyse the issues of agribusiness partnerships in the Mediterranean through a survey of twenty enterprises located in five countries (France, Lebanon, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco) and involved in four agrifood industries (cereals, milk, poultry meat, oilseeds). This survey was conducted between January and May 2010 through a series of face-to-face discussion with company executives to identify strategic and organizational profiles. These discussions aimed to identify needs, opportunities and challenges that hinder such cooperative relations in this area. Analysis of key results led to establish several types of businesses according to their profiles or the nature of collaborative partners. Cooperatives monographs of number of firms surveyed illustrate the present and future opportunities. Our analyses show, first, a contrast in strategic behaviours between firms from North and South, although some recent evidence of an emergent dynamism and a strong desire to forge international partnerships. Then, the cooperative needs expressed vary by industry and country concerned, from a priority research of "pure" business opportunities to more interest to technology partnerships and organizational learning relationships. Taken together, the surveyed companies do not appear to rely neither on national nor regional instituting framework in their search for partnerships, preferring to mobilize their business services or their own informal networks of contacts. In fact, the identification of 'relevant' partners in relation to the expressed needs, constitutes the main difficulty of cooperative relationships. Finally, the surveyed companies considered that the creation of a proactive structure dedicated to partnerships within food enterprises as the most relevant issue to increase this type of cooperative relationships.
