Oversupply Of Leather Due To Increase In Beef Consumption

As students, we never paid much attention to some of our subjects especially the ones we find boring including social sciences. Not everyone has the patience to absorb the lessons in sociology, anthropology and even economics. Everyone was so focused on finishing their business in order for them to earn a lot when they graduate. This is the same for the staff at CalTrend until they realized the importance of the lessons imparted in each subject matter.

Many would think that those subject matters are not as glamorous as others because they are not earning anything. Fast forward to today, we have found out that those subjects we used to ignore are actually going to be very essential when it comes to starting their own businesses. Every business must be well-versed with production, trends in the society and human behaviour in order to succeed.  To know the buying patterns of the consumer, one must make use of marketing strategies but this solution is only for short-term. Long-term tactic deals with trends as well as behaviours in order to create a bigger impact.

Many years ago, the past generations thought that it is not good to eat beef therefore the price went downhill while there is not enough supply of hides to cover the demand. This is quite the opposite of what is happening these days because many have accepted the practice of eating beef. As a result, we now have too many hides which can’t all be used up in the shoe manufacturing industry ever since the introduction of other materials that are used in making shoes.

By-products such as leather are very dependent on the technological innovation and the demand of the society. There are some that eventually collapsed because of the sudden change in trends while there are those that survived regardless. The supply chain is impact by the businesses involved in it. In the case of leather, CalTrend plays a big role because they are the ones using up the demand on order for the supply to continue rolling along with other companies producing goods made of leather.
