Food Supply Chain Management and Logistics

Food Supply Chain Management and Logistics by Samir Dani provides a comprehensive guide to food supply chains from both a management and social perspective.

Covering the food supply chain from ‘farm’ to ‘fork’, the book considers the various challenges and supporting mechanisms to make sure that the food reaching our plates is safe.

Dani shows the reader how to stay ahead of the game by keeping abreast of global best practice, harnessing the very latest technology, and squeezing efficiency and profit from increasingly complex supply chains. The book features global case studies from real life companies, including Nestlé, Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, and Cadburys.

This book covers essential topics in food supply chain management, including:

•    Food supply chain production and manufacturing
•    Food logistics
•    Food regulation, safety and quality
•    Food sourcing, food retailing, risk management
•    Food innovation
•    Technology trends
•    Food sector and economic regeneration
•    Challenges in international food supply chains; triple bottom line trends in the food sector
•    Food security and future challenges

“This book offers a comprehensive analysis of logistics and supply chain management in the food industry,” says professor Stephan M Wagner, chair of logistics management and director executive MBA at the ETH Zurich. “Given the criticality of food supply chains, and the risks if not managed properly, managers in the food and adjacent industries will greatly benefit from the thorough analysis. The end-to-end view of food supply chains is well-covered. The topical case examples relate the discussion to practice and are a great source for teaching.”
