Abstract
In India, the supply stage of surimi value chain starts with fish harvested in sea by small boats and is completed when either whole or headed-and-gutted fish reaches the surimi processing plant. The identified critical factors which play a crucial role in maintaining fish and rest raw material quality are fragmented ownerships, fishing area identification, fishing boat and its capacity, old boat unloading practice, real time information sharing, visual inspections of fish quality at various stages, non-standard cold chain, temperature measurement system, manual touch points and location of operations. There is a need to map the existing system along with these critical factors considering cold chain logistics, activity time, technology adoption, innovative practice(s)/system(s) implementation, feasibility and economic challenges to make the process both efficient and agile. The use of techniques such as value stream mapping and 5S practice is explored to develop a strategy for improved resource utilization.
