What is it about?

We seek to better understand the barriers limiting the development of the dairy production system in Santa Catarina. To have a holistic view of the system was adopted the business ecosystem concept as analysis lens. A business ecosystem can be defined as an economic community supported by a foundation of organizations and individuals, including industry players, government, universities/research institutes and other stakeholders that interact together to co-creation of value (Moore, 1993; Riemer and Klein, 2006; Galateanu and Avasilcai, 2013). It is an emerging concept analogized from biology, it moves beyond market positioning and industrial structure by having three major characteristics: symbiosis, platform and co-evolution (Li, 2009).

Why is it important?

It is the first study that identifies barriers to the development of dairy production in Santa Catarina using as an analytical lens the business ecosystem. And once identified these barriers, it is possible to devise strategies to eliminate or mitigate these barriers.
