Students learn about supply chain management at Jules Destrooper

file3-1A group of 29 IB Economics and Business Management students visited the Jules Destrooper factories in Lo and Ypres recently.  They began the day with a presentation of the company and extensive Question and Answer session.  Following this, the group took a fascinating tour of the factory floor in two different production facilities.

The purpose of this field trip was to expose the students to a company from a logistics and supply chain management point of view while reinforcing links in IB Business Management (such as Human Resources, marketing and finance) and IB Economics ((including the macroeconomic environment and competition).
