New Markets and New Opportunities

CapLog’s market and value chain analysis help clients understand how their products flow through the global supply chain. We identify factors that influence people and prices along that supply chain. We explore potential opportunities for improving value, mitigating risk and building partnerships. We help clients discover and understand new markets. Recent work has included:
Analysis of how Chinese demand will affect Mexican seafood and fisheries
• Identification of markets and partners for a Mexican aquaculture product
• Assessment of market opportunities for California fishermen
• Pilot project for an environmental NGO to test a market initiative for Mexican curvina fishermen and US processors

New Collaboration

CapLog's economic and policy support helps clients assess, plan and benefit from changes in regulatory policy, in supply channels and in market demands. CapLog brings together diverse for-profit and non-profit actors to identify common interests and develop actionable, collaborative solutions to shared problems. This work stretches back to 2010 when we organized a two-day workshop where fishermen, processors, restaurants, retailers and NGOs developed strategies to increase the value of New England groundfish. Similarly, in 2014, CapLog partnered with an international environmental NGO to lead a workshop for fishermen in Chile to map and understand the value chain for their products.
