Social Food Inc: Creating an Effective Social Enterprise through Vertical Integration Case Study

Social Food Inc. Abstract

This case study focuses on the growth challenges of a Singapore-based Social Enterprise, Social Food Inc. (SFI), that teaches food preparation skills to Persons with Disabilities to integrate them into the workforce. The case study explores how SFI had to modify its business model by adopting a strategy of vertical integration to ensure that it could maximize impact while maintaining its financial viability. The case also highlights the imperative need for Social Enterprises to collaborate with diverse stakeholders in the public and private domain to take on intractable social challenges.
