Food Supply Chain Management

The food we eat reaches us via food supply chains through which food moves systematically in domino-like motion from producers to consumers while the money consumers pay for food goes to people who work at various stages along the food supply chain in the reverse direction.

Advanced Supply Chain Management (ASCM) is an advanced course in the field of Operations Research & Operations Management. Food and agribusiness supply chains are often globally interconnected systems with a large variety of complex relationships.

Supply-chain management (SCM), the management of the flow of goods and services, involves the movement and storage of raw materials, of work-in-process inventory, and of finished goods from point of origin to point of consumption. Marketing channels play an important role in supply-chain management.
