Abstract

The salt supply chain consists of a complex pattern. In this case, salt farmers, as a significant part of the salt trade, need careful trade channels to get optimal profits. Determination of supply chain channels on a salt commodity is not lonely affected by the price but driven by many external factors. Identify the most significant contributor to the decision making of it, and the Delphi-based approach becomes a promising way. This study designed using qualitative with two rounds of Delphi method, namely to determine the factors that influence the salt supply chain system and the second stage to establish consensus based on the factors obtained in the previous stage. Using a purposive sampling method, the subjects of the study were seven respondents from salt supply chain players in Indonesia. The questionnaire was arranged based on factors affecting the salt supply chain system. As a result, the consensus with the experts was achieved after the 3rd interview, related to factors: number of family members, income rate, salt quality, salt production, price, payment system, price information, capital, and transaction cost. Factors that influence the choice of supply chain systems will have an impact on the amount of income of farmers.
