The vertically-integrated model using joint-venture finance meets the objectives of economies of scale, farm productivity improvement, capital attraction and new value chain design.

A financial model should be prepared to assess the financial viability of the vertically-integrated business model on a high level basis. The model would reflect the broad capital investment required and profile the timing of cash flow investment and returns to both producers and investors. This will not only demonstrate if these potential returns are higher than that returned under the existing industry structure, but will also inform if the potential returns are attractive enough to attract the required funding, from the perspective of both end-users and external investors.
