A Literature Review on Risk Sources and Resilience Factors in Agri-Food Supply Chains

Abstract : Risk and uncertainty are ubiquitous and varied in agri-food supply chains. As environment volatility increases, only having capabilities to manage agri-food supply chain risks may not be enough, resilience factors also need to be integrated into daily operations. This paper undertakes a systematic literature review on risks sources and resilience factors in agri-food supply chains. A five-stage systematic review methodology has been followed. The findings suggest that agri-food supply chains are highly vulnerable to various risks due to its unique characteristics of products. Main risk sources include antibiotics resistance, weather related risks and natural disasters, policy and institutional risks, and unethical issues. Five key resilience factors identified from the literature are traceability, knowledge management, collaboration, culture, and agility. The paper makes a contribution to the extant literature in the field of agri-food supply chain risk management and agri-food supply chain resilience.
