Implementing traceability in Indian food-supply chains: An interpretive structural modeling approach
Traceability in food-supply chains is an emerging issue due to increased awareness of consumers about food safety and the nature of food-supply chains that have become globalized. To implement traceability, there is a need to understand the variables and their inter-relationships that impact traceability in a food-supply chain. This article utilizes interpretive structural modeling to develop a hierarchy based model that helps to understand the interactions among the drivers of traceability in a food-supply chain. The results indicate that there is a group of variables that are most important for traceability systems to be successful and another group of the resultant actions. The model developed in the article provides managerial insights to supply chain managers of food-supply chains to improve traceability that would ultimately lead to competitive advantage. 2016 Taylor & Francis.
