Policy Insight paper published by Food Research Collaboration
- Friday, February 18, 2022
Dr Jan Moorhouse, Faculty of Business and Law, has had a Research Insight published by the Food Research Collaboration, entitled ‘Rethink vegetable supply chains as networks not markets’.
Dr Moorhouse’s research examines how vegetable supply chains could be considered as networks, rather than markets.
Network thinking could give communities a more active role in supply chain governance, provide growers with alternatives to the supermarket supply chains, and help policy-makers adopt a ‘macro-marketing’ perspective on consumption patterns.
The Food Research Collaboration is an initiative of the Centre for Food Policy, facilitating joint working between academics and civil society organisations to improve the UK food system.
