Performance Measurement and Risk Management in Food Chain Businesses

What we offer:
'How to measure performance across supply chains and networks rather than within organisations?' was recently identified as one of the urgent questions for businesses and researchers. Food supply chains are particularly fragmentary, and whilst there is research into both the producer and consumer retail aspects of performance measurement in terms of benchmarking and supplier relationships, less is known about and therefore available to intermediary businesses. Problems relating to risk, information-sharing and exchange and diverse IT systems potentially inhibit the development of integrated and effective supply chains, whilst the demands of customers bring challenges that are peculiar to food supply chains.

What we are looking for:
We are carrying research in the UK and Spain with intermediary businesses and aim to:

- understand the information requirements of intermediary businesses and how they currently use financial and non-financial information to manage their operations;
- identify current and best practice, risks and challenges facing intermediary businesses in food supply chains;
- generate ideas for further development of effective performance measurement and benchmarking in the sector.

Keywords:
  • Agents involved in the sale of food and beverages


Collaboration sought:
  • Research Co-operation/ FP7 Project
