Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We create a model which analyses the various risks involved in a food supply chain with the help of interpretive structural modelling (ISM). The various types of risks were identified based on a review of the literature and in consultation with experts in the food industry. The types of risks are clustered into five categories and risk mitigation is discussed. The model developed is validated with the help of a case study involving a food products manufacturing firm.
