Description

The food supply chain is a series of links and inter-dependencies, from farms to food consumers’ plates, embracing a wide range of disciplines. Food Supply Chain Management brings together the most important of these disciplines and aims to provide an understanding of the chain, to support those who manage parts of the chain and to enhance the development of research activities in the discipline. Food Supply Chain Management follows a ‘farm to fork’ structure. Each chapter starts with aims and an introduction and concludes with study questions that students in particular will find useful.
