Our Additional Value : A Distinctive Approach Supported by an Innovative Approach

- An in-depth knowledge of environmental and food supply chains and their modes of operation : our reflection relies on both analysing each link in the chain within the various food supply chains and taking into account the impact of each decision upon other levels of the sector.
- Multidisciplinary teams : our consultants have twofold training, technical (engineers and veterinarians), managerial (finance, quality…) and also methodological skills (finance, computer science, food safety and crisis management, quality assurance…) necessary for the understanding of all the issues experienced by our clients.
- A global approach : Phylum takes into account different aspects of a project – economic, financial, marketing, organisational, production quality and safety – thanks to the multidisciplinarity of the team and through a network of skilled partners, allowing to complete the approach to complex problems.
- A network of partners : technical institutes, research centres such as ENV (French National Veterinary School), INSA (National Institute of Applied Sciences), INRA (European Agricultural Research Institute), OIE (World Organisation for Animal Health), AFSSA (French Food Safety Agency), AFNOR (French National Organisation for Standardisation), etc.
