Abstract:The aim of this research is to provide clarity into ways of increasing the utilization of Dutch wheat in bread production, by means of supply chain innovation. In the Netherlands, 1.2 million tons of wheat is produced each year, which represents 1% of the European Union’s total production. Currently, only 15% (180,000 tons) of Dutch wheat is milled into meal and flour for bread production. The remainder is used by the feed industry (55%), starch industry (20%) and for bio-ethanol production (4%). The primary actors of the Dutch milling-wheat supply chain consist of plant breeders, wheat growers, collectors and milling companies. Bakeries, supermarkets and consumers are the secondary actors of the chain. Consumers from the chain’s most powerful actor whereas wheat growers and collectors are the least powerful actors
