QUIROGA, Juan Martín. A preliminary value chain analysis of the rose hip in Bariloche and influence area, Argentina. SaberEs [online]. 2019, vol.11, n.1, pp.65-80. ISSN 1852-4418.

This paper analyzes the economic activity related to the Rose Hip in the north-western region of the Argentine Patagonia, with the aim of understanding every activity involved. For this purpose, the Global Value Chains approach is used, deepened with an analysis of the technology involved in each of these stages. The conclusions highlight the existence of a bottleneck in the harvesting of Rose Hip, and it is argued that it is the result of the asymmetry between harvesters and collectors. Therefore, the associativity of harvesters is proposed in order to improve their bargaining power, and the possible role that the development of ad-hoc harvest technologies could have for this purpose is discussed. It is expected that this article constitutes an input for decision making of social actors and businessman that belongs to this sector, as well as for the development of public policies by government officials and agents.

Keywords : Global Value Chains; Regional Economies; Social Technologies.
