WLG Event: Procurement of Raw Materials of Natural Origin & AGM

CIPS Wellington Committee invites you to a very interesting networking and learning event to discuss the topic of Procurement of Raw Materials of Natural Origin along with the annual AGM. The example of Herbal materials sourced by Integria Healthcare.

These factors include:

  • Very unsophisticated front-end suppliers
  • Subsistence growers and/or harvesters in third world countries
  • Modern Slavery concerns
  • Middle men/Traders often involved with no visibility of actual origins
  • Variable awareness of quality depending on the origin
  • Seasonal variation giving rise to variability in quality
  • Variable demand patterns – external and internal
