Blue skies

How one firm overcame binding constraints

By just about any measure, Blue Skies Limited is a financial and economic success story. Over the past decade, sales have grown by an average of 28 percent per year, the company now employs close to 3,000 workers, and it works with hundreds of farmers in Brazil, Egypt, Ghana, South Africa, and the United Kingdom. In short, Blue Skies has become a large multinational firm in West Africa. It has also won numerous awards for its business model, and particularly the way it treats its employees and its partner farmers across the globe.
