Supply Chain Models
A food supply chain is a network of food-related business enterprises through which food products move from field to plate.
Food supply chains can vary in complexity, from long with many links to short and quite direct. The attached Supply Chain Model shows the possible routes available.
Modern supply chain analyses often also includes such pre-production links as agricultural research (e.g., on genetics) and post-consumer links such as waste disposal and recycling.
Developing local supply chains opens up opportunities for small Welsh producers.
