Risks in Mustard Seeds procurement

Mustard Seeds procurement managers also need to proactively identify and mitigate potential risks that can arise in the supply chain or contracts for Mustard Seeds procurement. Some examples include:


  • Rise in the prices of key raw materials significantly increases the manufacturing cost within the category. Additionally, adverse weather conditions also impact the cost of certain raw materials negatively. Increased raw material cost in a supplier's hands can lead to an almost proportionate rise in the overall category costs
  • When requirements of the buyers are not absolutely clear or usage patterns are not stable or predictable, suppliers often build in \"cost buffers\" for unforeseen risks due to a lack of complete understanding on buyer's requirements. This increases the risk of overspending on Mustard Seeds
  • Category is exposed to the currency exchange risks primarily due to high amount of imports of raw material. The lowering down of dollar and Euro prices against the currency of exporting regions will result in the suppliers incurring extra expenses, which ultimately affects the profitability of the buyer
