Definition of the value chain (UNIDO)
A value chain can be understood as a set of businesses, activities and relationships involved in creating a final product of services. It builds on the idea that a product is rarely consumed in its original form, but becomes transformed, combined with other products, transported, packaged and marketed until it reaches its final consumer. In this sense, a value chain describes how producers, processors, buyers, sellers and consumers – separated by time and space – gradually add value to products as they pass from one link in the chain to the next.
