This vital new text offers a holistic view of the factors affecting the different tiers of sustainability, public health, poverty, security and production within the food supply chain. With contributions from international experts in the field, it takes particular emphasis on growing populations and the deployment of agricultural land for uses other than food.

Designed to examine issues facing the food supply chain, including food supply and security, Contemporary Issues in Food Supply Chain Management considers supply security in terms of food availability, traceability, the delivery of a sustainable diet, technological changes and the impact of current governance structures. It revolves around the central theme of supply chains and the management of supply, but notes that a safe, effective food supply system is fraught with complexities, dichotomies and paradoxes.

Divided into three parts it tackles issues in the following areas:
  • The supply chain – problems and dilemmas
  • Food security and sustainability;
  • Case studies and new areas of research
It examines issues within these areas and highlights to the reader the level of interconnectivity and tensions in the delivery of food security and economic, social and environmental sustainability and the provision of safe and nutritious diets.
