In terms of collaboration, Harvest Kitchen has to first understand what they need from other Farm Fresh internal programs regarding means of distribution. Then they need to observe what is the best date that matches with both programs and also tries to use an automated way to communicate each other. After they already have the scheduling, they can implement it and test the new concept. This concept is very useful to design and test new implementation of a process which in Harvest Kitchen is the implementation of a new scheduling and distributing
It was a joint venture with Voltas and Punjab Agro Industries Corporation.

Malaysian generic pharmaceutical market was valued at RM 390 million (2001). Annual growth rate of 10 percent and a CAGR(2001 to 2007) of 12.5%. The key factor for generic drug players to produce generic versions of the drugs and increase market share is the ability of our local generic manufacturers to take advantage by preparing new products in their production pipeline, appropriate manufacturing facilities and bioequivalent to the proprietary
It is unavoidable new products are introduced from time to time. The product which has stayed on business market may become outdated or obsolete (Smith, 2012). In order to recover from further plummeting both in term of customers and business profits, Nagle and Holden (2002) mention that industries tend to apply three strategies which are Harvest, Consolidate and Focus.

Based on the market economy principle, as populations’ increases, the demand in importing agri-food has become inevitable tendency (Fred Gale et al. 2015).
This will cause local companies can’t offer a competitive price in the low price international market. The insufficient raw material in Malaysia cause local companies have to import from overseas which unbeneficial to pricing strategy and expose in risk of fluctuation currency rate. The highly dependent on foreign workers due to high Malaysia labour cost create some consequences. The companies have to follow the law about foreign labour set by government, for example the duration foreign workers stay in Malaysia is limited. This will force those companies to retrain new workers which will not support in R&D program and increase the efficiency of a company.
