Modeling Supply Chain Risks for Agricultural Sourcing

Curation Foods is a natural foods company, dedicated to making fresh, plant-based foods accessible to as many people as possible. With increasing threats to California’s farming industry due to climate change, there is a growing need to accurately predict the agricultural yield and harvest dates.

Curation Foods has asked the Tauber internship team to produce the following deliverables: A predictive model that accurately forecasts the broccoli harvest window, a model for tracking growing performance across the broccoli life cycle, and a scorecard and dashboard for tracking grower performance within different regions in California.
